About

Secluded beneath towering redwoods in the charming hamlet of Occidental, the Inn at Occidental is centrally located to the spectacular vineyards and orchards of Sonoma wine country, the stunning beaches and cliffs of the Sonoma Coast, and the meandering Russian River. The perfect location, just one hour north of the Golden Gate Bridge in West Sonoma wine country. Relaxed and personal, it lies closer to the sea (and farther from the traffic) than neighboring Napa. It's the wine country with meandering roads and gently sloping hills-where nationally known vineyards and family-run operations exist side by side. The Inn at Occidental offers formal and informal meeting space and accommodations for weddings, corporate retreats or family gathering. Garden Courtyard surrounded by roses offers a picturesque site for weddings up to 110. Inn amenties include: Fireplaces, spa tubs, phones, Directv, wireless internet, business services, concierge, conference and wedding facilities. Spa center nearby.

A dream of a vacation spot.

5 on July 15, 2014

The Inn at Occidental is pricey - but the wonderful staff and the gorgeous property really deliver on the promise. It really could not have been any nicer. Our room (Safari) was massive - immaculately clean, beautifully decorated. The breakfasts were memorably delicious. The staff treated us like old friends. The location was super - walking distance to everything in town, and short drives to the local points of interest, of which there are MANY. Our only complaint: That we couldn't stay another day.

Beautiful Bed and Breakfast. Good location, quiet area, cozy rooms, friendly people. Great wine tasting hour in the evening. Yummy breakfast. I wish there were more breakfast entree options though. I also feel like it was a bit pricey. Overall, great experience!


Nice stay at Occidental

Very nice atmosphere and warm hospitality. I would have preferred to have fresh squeezed oranges instead of juices for breakfast.


Restful Gem

We went for a quick night away to celebrate a birthday and were totally blown away by the attention to detail in the service. Cake in our room on arrival, spur of the moment massage booked, fantastic dinner reservations at the local french restaurant. And the breakfast was fantastic. It is a darling little inn, but the incredible service really made it special!


Valentine's Day Weekend Get-away

4.4 on February 21, 2014

It was a rainy weekend but the stay at Occidental Inn warmed our hearts. Although we have been to numerous other B&Bs in the Sonoma/Russioan River area over the years, this was our first trip to Occidental and what a find! The setting is perfect and the Inn is truly a beautiful place. We stayed in the Marbles Suite and it is an exceptional room with a very comfortable seating area, fireplace, large spa-type tub, a nice sixed bathroom with a roomy walk-in shower. The breakfast was top quality cuisine, although the first day the service was inexplicably slow (50 minutes to receive the entree!). The second day however, the service was prompt and the food superb. We love this area and the Occidental Inn is one of the region's crown jewels.


planning to return as soon as possible

Wonderful B&B, very romantic. Staff were great. We're planning to return as soon as possible


Comfortable, charming & welcoming

3.8 on January 02, 2014

My bride and I stayed the weekend after Christmas. Tina & Jerry are the most Friendly and accommodating innkeepers. Every stick of furniture and decor is unique & authentic, right down to the wicker waste baskets. Breakfast was beautifully presented, well prepared, and healthy served in a lovely but chilly dining room. The only complaint is that we couldn't lower the heat in our room, so we were quite toasty under the down comforter and heavy linen. We hope to stay there again.


Wonderful B&B

4.2 on October 03, 2012

The only thing that we recommend that the Inn should disclose, is there is limited cell phone coverage at the Inn. Verizon works in some places in the Inn but not all.


A Blessed Haven

Felt like a dream in the woods, in the clouds, amongst the transparency of man and nature living well together. Refreshed.


A Must Stay!!

I had always wanted to try a stay at the Inn at Occidental and finally got the pleasure to stay there a night as my husband and I took a road trip on our motorcycle. Everything about the inn met our expectations and we only wish we could of stayed longer. We will return again to experience one of the other charming rooms!!! Thanks Tina & Jerry..........
