Everything was comfortable, immaculate, and beautiful, with excellent gourmet breakfast in a relaxed setting. Location is on a main road but not noisy, and convenient to wineries. Guests have opportunity to interact and exchange anecdotes about local wineries. Loved it!

Central location

We stayed here over the Labor Day holiday. We really enjoyed our time here. It's central to most of the Sonoma wineries. You can even walk to several if you choose.
