I loved the fireplace in our room and the service was wonderful. Easy check-in and very helpful when trying to find dinner spots. Also, hooked us up with an inexpensive car service.

Oh God. We are extremely disappointed with this BB. My Fiance took me to our second trip to Sonoma, Napa, St. Helena. I was in charged of a romantic BB selection. He wanted a special place. I did spend a few hours reading reviews, searching maps and based on the reviews, I choose the Sandy Oaks. I even spoke with the owner. Really? She never showed up to to great us as she told me. Most of the comments mentioned the owners hospitality, we never saw them in premises. The comments talks about how special this place is, maybe was 70 years ago. The rooms are OLD, but OLD fashioned, the carpet needs URGENT replacement. Everything is 'military' scheduled. If you are not at the breakfast table at 9:00am, you will miss it. I think we missed understood the menu, but my fiance was expecting eggs benedict, his favorite breakfast. Instead we got sausage and french toast. (I am vegetarian, didn't have a choice!!!) The worse, the pictures in their website are misleading. Not from their premises. We are frequent travelers, a semi retired couple in our early 40's, not a place for us. This place is worth $89.00, we paid almost $250.00! - unbelievable! Again, if you are a yuppy or an established professional, this is not a place for you. Keila

Lovely, peaceful, serene setting for a get-away. Our Winery Room, located in the small, adjacent building was charming and atmospheric, with a rock wall and lovely antiques. Breakfast, served outside on the wisteria-covered patio, was fabulous and filling. Hosts Lisa and John made us feel like we were visiting the home of long-time dear friends. Shady Oaks will definitely be our destination on future visits.

We couldn't have been better cared for, appreciated, tended to, or resourced. The only thing wrong with our stay was that our commitments prevented us from enjoying more of the wonderful breakfasts. It was a wonderful stay!
