Great B&B

4.8 on June 01, 2016

We had a great time at this B&B. The Inn was charming and the hosts, Pam & Larry, were very helpful and accommodating. The breakfast was phenomenal! The Gables is centrally located and convenient to many things, We would highly recommend!


Loved it!

We just returned from our first trip to wine country and stayed at The Gables Wine Country Inn. We loved the home, the grounds and our hosts! The food was fabulous that they served us and they were very willing to share recommendations.


Enjoyed our stay

4.2 on October 29, 2014

My wife and I enjoyed the hospitality from Larry and Pam. They were both very helpful. The breakfast was outstanding.


Amazing honeymoon

5 on October 20, 2014

We stayed at The Gables with Pam and Larry for our honeymoon. It was amazing. The breakfast is three courses every morning and if you have to leave early to make an appointment they will make you a bagged breakfast. We stayed in the cottage. It was very private. Larry also has a map of the area and he will show you all the places to go. You also get a wine pass that gets you free tastings at over 100 different winery's. We can't wait to come back.


A Magical Place

5 on August 30, 2014

My sister and I stayed at The Gables Wine Country Inn for about a week in August 2014 and it was truly a magical experience, and innkeepers Pam and Larry Willis made us feel as if we were staying in their private home. B. Wise private wine cave tour and tasting was one of the highlight experiences! also Safari West. We had a surprise at 3:20 am on August 24th while staying in the Parlor Room - the 6.1 Napa earthquake! We stayed three nights each in the Parlor Room and the Library Room and loved them both. The Library Room entry door is right next to the coffee/tea area, and Pam always has a lidded glass jar filled with her fresh-baked cookies of various kinds. We loved the breakfasts. Pam and Larry are chefs. The first course is a bread or scone or muffin baked by Pam. The second course is a fruit course, also by Pam, and often includes fruits from their own garden. Larry prepares the third and last course each day, and Pam serves it. We had souffles, grits with poached egg, and "the Larry." The most important reason I will return to The Gables is Pam and Larry (and their sweet little dog Stella). They absolutely love what they do as innkeepers, and it shows in the loving way they care for their guests. I felt like family, and I know I will feel that way every single time I stay at The Gables Wine Country Inn. I highly recommend The Gables to anyone, nearby or far away, who is looking for the best accommodations ever, in a location that is rural but within minutes of the 101 freeway and downtown Santa Rosa.


Wow! Great place

Wow! What a great place. The rooms are quite large and very clean. The property and staff are top notch. Breakfast was heavenly. I would definitely stay there again.


Wonderful Welcoming B&B

5 on August 15, 2014

My wife and I spent three great nights with Pam and Larry at the Gables. Big, well appointed room in a true Victorian house. The breakfasts were amazing, bread, fruit and egg courses. The "Larry" was outstanding. The cookie jar was always full of delicious treats. Well located for Sonoma and Russian River winery tours. Pam and Larry can recommend and arrange winery visits. They also have good recommendations for local Santa Rosa dinning. We have stayed in many B&Bs, the Gables is among our top three!


Our stay at The Gables Wine Country Inn

4.8 on July 28, 2014

It was our first time staying in a Bed and Breakfast, and we were very happy to have chosen this one. Pam and Larry provided warm hospitality, a delicious 3 course breakfast and a friendly and safe environment. We had a great time at their place.


Great Time

5 on July 18, 2014

We had a wonderful time staying at The Gables. The host Pam and Larry were great. We had a very early morning and they provided us a "bag breakfast" that we could enjoy on our way to our hot air balloon ride. The second morning we were treated to wonderful baked items made by Pam and a great egg, bacon, tomato, avocado and homemade bread creation by Larry. They had recommendations for dinner and made reservations for us. We would definitely stay with them again.


WOW!!!!

5 on July 07, 2014

This is everything you could ask for in a B&B! The room was the best I seen. The breakfast, WOW, never had a better one. The next time I'm in the San Fran area I will be back there again.
