Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay: Set amid beautiful redwoods and gardens, Fern Grove Cottages offers twenty vacation rental cabins – both studios and 1-2 bedrooms, each with a private bathroom and television. We also have romantic fireplaces for chilly winter nights, hot tubs, and full kitchens and wet bars in some cottages. We serve a hearty continental breakfast each morning in our mountain lodge – enjoy it there, or take it back to your own private balcony. We change our menu each season, using fresh ingredients, and serve items including bread, homemade scones, fruit and fruit preserves, yogurt, granola, oatmeal, juices, and fresh-brewed coffee. We have a saline swimming pool, heated to a comfortable 80 degrees in the summer. We also have a picnic area for guest use in the warmer months, including a barbeque if you want to cook your own hot meal under the trees. Fern Grove Cottages is an easy walk to the center of Guerneville – where you’ll find a number of choices for lunch and dinner. We’re also close to the Russian River and you can enjoy golfing, ocean beaches, and the Sonoma Wine Country too. Guests are provided wine passports that allow free tastings at over 100 separate wineries in the area. There are also kayak adventures on the Russian River available nearby, and great hiking in the Armstrong Woods State Reserve. Originally constructed in the Roaring Twenties, Fern Grove Cottages catered to vacationers from the San Francisco Bay Area. We continuously renovate our Russian River cabins, while maintaining their warm ambiance and rustic charm. We welcome pets (well behaved) and families with kids. Each of our Guerneville vacation rentals has an individual theme, so each stay with us is unique. Fern Grove Cottages also includes beautiful flower and fruit gardens, and guests are welcome to explore the property and enjoy the towering redwoods. Come stay with us the next time you visit Guerneville, the Russian River, and Sonoma Wine Country!
