Explore the seductive charms of Sonoma and Mendocino wine country from the centrally located Auberge on the Vineyard. Newly remodeled, and newly renamed (formerly The Shelford House), this intimate bed and breakfast enjoys a spectacular vineyard setting. Classic Queen Anne architecture and French styled decor are the defining characteristics of our accommodations. Some of our 7 distinctively decorated guest rooms feature jetted tubs for two, private decks, fireplaces, and all the modern amenities that refined travelers look for in luxury travel. Located in the charming and unpretentious town of Cloverdale, which has just been voted the "#2 Coolest Small Town in America" by Fodor's Budget Travel, we are only 90 miles north of San Francisco. Boasting a climate so consistent that you could almost set your clock by it, our visitors are nearly as happy with our weather as our sundrenched grapevines are!

Warm, Welcoming, and great for any Occasion

Auberge is a true gem amongst the many accommodation options in Sonoma, Napa, and Mendocino wine country, and a highly recommended spot for any relaxing/romantic getaway. Roxanne and her inn staff make a memorable experience in a laid back environment that is welcoming and inclusive to all. In addition, their suite was pet friendly, allowing for our four-legged family member, Tahoe (a cocker spaniel poodle), to join us for our recent special visit. My partner and I stayed in Jan of 2014 for our second time, during which I gave her a commitment ring after 9 years together. The combination of Auberge's views of Alexander Valley, combined with their delicious crepes and awesome french roast coffee, was the perfect combination to create a lasting memorable event for our special day. Roxanne and her staff were amazing and you could not ask for a better inn keeper. If you're thinking of staying somewhere else, you're wasting your time. Auberge truly provides a space and place to appreciate all that California wine country has to offer. Plus, great beer down the street at McGowan's brew pub. What more could you ask for...

Great Getaway!

Our daughter gave us a weekend here for a Christmas gift, and we couldn't have been more pleased. Warm friendly people, delicious 3-course breakfast each morning, and beautiful French-themed rooms. Ours in the carriage house (Montrachet Suite) had a claw-foot tub jacuzzi! So relaxing!!

Can't say enough good things about this place

Roxanne made our Thanksgiving stay absolutely memorable. I am gluten-free by necessity (Celiac's Disease) and my husband has a berry allergy and she juggled all of this at breakfast (including two guests who did not eat meat) with finesse and style. How many B&B owners actually keep gluten-free flour to make crepes for their gluten-free guests? Our room was peaceful and gorgeous, I got great sleep and the view out the bathroom window (a vineyard) was something you only get in places three times this price. I enjoyed a peaceful soak in the vintage claw foot tub admiring that view. The food is fabulous, the setting serene, and breakfast is an event, with lively, intelligent conversation around the Victorian dining table while you are served a gourmet, multi-course breakfast. Great value and a fabulous experience only 20 minutes from Healdsburg square in Sonoma County. We'll be back.

wonderful stay at this B&B!

Stayed for 5 days right after grape harvest in November, 2013. Went for a small, intimate wedding on the grounds. Roxanne and the staff were wonderfully accommodating and helped make everything special. Comfortable and friendly rural atmosphere. Vineyard views are awesome, especially from second floor of carriage house. Breakfasts were outstanding. Enjoyed meeting some of the Inn's neighbors one morning. Inn provides nice wine tasting package to the numerous vineyards and wineries in the area.
