My daughters and I stayed two nights at the Inn last weekend. This was our second stay with Tim and Jackie. Our first was in 2005 when my youngest was barely out of high school. Both times we made memories that will last a lifetime. Our experience at Melitta Station will be a big part of this. The food is wonderful, we were warmly welcomed, the rooms are comfortable, and the authentic antique decor is charming. Kudos!

A beautifully charming and exciting B&B; the decor, food, and Innkeepers all blend into the comforting ambience of staying in the Victorian countryside.

WE had a wonderful stay at the Melitta Stsation Inn. The hosts were gracious and helpful. The only improvement would be to include eggs or another protein for breakfast. While delicious, there was just too much sugar and starch.
Very useful perspective. We try to vary the menu every day to include a variety of both sweet and savory items on alternate days- from "sweet" French toast to savory frittatas and egg-plant stacks. Most of them have a meat side on offer where this makes culinary sense to the chef. If a guest prefers simple eggs then we can always provide those, most ways including raw if desired. our aim is the guests pleasure and our other reviews seem to confirm that we are providing this.

There is nothing to compare with arriving at your destination to a good cup of English tea and fresh made scones and jam! Unless it's breakfast made by a chef! The food was the best I have ever had in a B&B and Tim and Jackie were most helpful in directing us around their neighborhood. We had a most delightful time.

We had a delightful 3-night stay with Jackie and Tim at the Melitta Station Inn. I loved the inn itself--modest and unassuming, tastefully decorated, the beds were very, very comfortable. The breakfasts were amazing--the meals consisted of healthy, wholesome food, prepared with love and care down to the last detail, and beautifully presented. Jackie and Tim are gracious, warm hosts that make the weary traveler feel welcome. I especially enjoyed the breakfast table conversations with guests from around the country and, in one case, from across the ocean! And of course the location is perfect for sampling the scrumptious wines in Sonoma County. Be sure to check out Wilson Winery if you like zins.

I was fortunate enough to stay at the Melitta Station for 3 days and it was fabulous. This property has a warmth I have rarely encountered. The room was well appointed and the bed accommodated my 6'3" frame without issue. The breakfast was a delight after having a good run around the lake/park across the street from this B&B. I would recommend this B&B to anyone looking to visit the area and surrounding wine country. 2 thumbs up for the Melitta Station Inn. Dan Curran

Delicious breakfasts-start with fruit then "sweet or savory" entree (alternates) then a dessert plus bread with homemade jams. We prefer the savory b/c healthier but all delicious. Tim and Jackie gush with suggestions and ideas for a great visit.

Conversation skittered around the Great Room as our group of 7 was showered with Tim and Jackie's hospitality. From food that was fit for the gods to beds of enormous comfort, I simply felt "cared for." My room was closest to the gathering area, yet remained blissfully quiet when I retreated. Tim and Jackie's charming warmth and delightful humor were simply appreciated to the max.

We have relatives nearby and stayed at 2 local hotels before discovering Melitta Station Inn, and we'll never stay anywhere else in this area! We recently returned from our second visit, and I'm delighted to report that it was a wonderful as our first. The location is tranquil, the rooms very comfy, and the innkeepers are a truly delightful couple. Tim will help with planning, winery visits, airline check-in and anything else you might need, and Jackie's breakfasts are utterly divine! They even accommodated guests of ours for breakfast one morning!

Jackie and Tim were the ultimate of hosts. Not only did they cater to your every whim and need but were always ready with recommendations when asked and yes, this did include a dentist, a car repair shop and places to dine and visit! Jackie is a superb chef with creative, tasty and clever dishes and addresses your dietary needs without a blink of an eye. This lovely British couple made our visit memorable and satisfying with a dream of returning and enjoying their company, home and hospitality again in the near future!

Melitta Station Inn was a delightful stay....we've stayed in many B&B's throughout Europe & the U.S. and Tim & Jackie make this one of the nicest. The accomodations were spotless & comfortable (rooms were not huge, but most B&B's aren't!), all the extra touches of home were available, food was delicous, hosts were very gracious and eager to please. Location was wonderful, right across from one of the best biking parks in the State and many restaurants & vineyards within 15 miles or less.

We were in the Sonoma Valley to plan our wedding. Tim and Jackie were outstanding hosts, Jackie's breakfasts among the best we have experienced. The inn is very lovely, secluded, but not too far away and we had a wonderful stay. Phoenix, AZ.

Bobbie and I enjoyed 3 nights at the Melitta Station Inn. Very friendly atmosphere led by Jackie and Tim. they were very helpful in exploring the area. Terrific breakfasts, each unique. Centrally located in wine country and a great value!!

This little Inn was the perfect place to stage our wine country and redwoods tour. We loved the room and especially the hosts. They made us feel we were staying at an English country inn. Tims knowledge of the area and helpful tips made our stay even better. Jackies food was "to die for" each day. I will return to this special place as long as Tim and Jackie are running the Inn.

We stayed at the inn for a wine country weekend and it was great. The rooms are clean, the bathroom was luxurious and there's a hot tub in the basement! Tim & Jackie were incredibly helpful and friendly, and breakfast was delicious!

My girlfriend and I were researching B&B's in the Sonoma County area and we ended up checking out Melitta Station Inn. We saw some great reviews on other sites, a lot of people had great things to say about the innkeepers; Tim and Jackie. Well, after staying here for a brief weekend wine country trip we can attest for all the great things people had to say here. Tim and Jackie were so nice. Tim took the time to go over several wineries with us and told us which ones he recommended. The free wine tasting pass is just an added bonus, and it seemed to give us a little more clout at some places (like Chateau St. Jean - awesome place BTW). Jackie took the time to go over several of the restaurants she's gone to and was very familiar with the atmosphere, food, and prices. We can't wait until our next stay here. Thanks Tim and Jackie!

My husband and I just got back from a delightful stay at the Melitta Station Inn & Spa. What a charming place to come "home" to at the end of our day touring wine country and the coast. Jackie and Tim put so much into the detail and their hospitality. The breakfasts were fabulous-thank for the website with the recipes. We look forward to staying with Jackie and Tim again, when we can escape the dead of winter in Alaska. Thank you.

Thoroughly enjoyable anniversary getaway with friendly but not overbearing hosts. (There is somethng about a British accent to us Yanks that just oozes hospitality). Excellent breakfasts - a memorable artichoke frittata with an anything-but-traditional British "rough" sauce, homemade breads, and gently marinated fruits. Walking distance to Annadel State Park and an easy drive to wineries, Oakmont golf course, and restaurants. Built in the late 1800s, the walls are a little thin and the pipes noisy but those are minor annoyances.Would definitely consider a return visit.
