Fern Grove Cottages
Fern Grove Cottages, a delightful array of vintage cottages, many with old-fashioned fireplace, some with romantic modern jetted-tubs, each with unique, themed-decor, spill across flower gardens near the Russian River. The grounds, welcoming and well-tended, are home to a variety of flowers, fruit trees and herbs as well as shady, restful areas for bar-b-ques, chatting or just relaxing; there is also a heated, saline-treated pool, shaded by Redwoods. Each unique cottage has an outdoor area, too- a porch or a deck; the feel of being a million miles away is emphasized by birdsong, playful squirrels, and once in a while, red foxes who are especially fond of the figs on the property. Clever kitchen facilities at this lodging make this a great group or family retreat, though restaurants are within easy walking distance.
The proprietors and staff here are very wine-knowledgeable and will provide concierge services to guide guests along the Wine Road as well as to nearby Armstrong Woods, the River and coast. Embracing its UK roots, there is always sherry in the afternoons and hot water for a cuppa. The delicious breakfast often includes homemade scones and granola. Depending on the season, Lemon Curd, from the estate grown Meyer lemons, Organic Rosemary, Olive Oil and Sea Salt Walnuts, Garden Grown Fresh Chutney and local cheeses are paired with local wines or hot tea. During Wine Road Annual Events, formal tea is served to guests. Not only are you made to feel exceptionally welcome, but so is your pet.
Here’s looking at you, kids.
