Come experience a restful retreat at Avalon, a friendly Tudor Bed & Breakfast nestled in an enchanting redwood grove ten miles from the Pacific Coast in beautiful Sonoma County. Our spacious suites have king beds, fireplaces, and unique private bathrooms done in natural stone, some with tubs and one with a steam room. Outside under the giant redwoods, we have a hot tub for all guests to enjoy at any time. From the freshly baked cookies to the wonderful breakfast as visually pleasing as it is delectable, Avalon is your perfect getaway in the California Wine Country.
The princess torn between her love for her husband, King Arthur, and her powerful desire for Sir Lancelot, Arthur's dear friend, Guenevere went into seclusion seeking relief from her conflicting feelings. She surrounded herself in luxury to preoccupy her mind and bring her peace. Choose this suite and you sleep in Guenevere's hideaway. With a king size bed, see-through fireplace, large sitting area, double-sink vanity, antique claw-foot tub, and two Romeo & Juilet balconies (one for each lover!), this suite is layered with romantic accents.
In the land of Faerie, anything is possible. You will sleep with sweet dreams of flight and fancy in the elegant king size bed piled high with luxury linens. The Enchanted Forest is complete with a fireplace in the sitting area, double granite sinks and tumbled marble throughout the spacious bathroom, and amazing views of the giant Redwoods just outside your door. Leave your windows open all night and the splashing of the creek will deepen your slumber.
With bottles of potions and magic, a king size bed, 3-sided fireplace visible from anywhere in the room, double cobalt blue blown glass sinks, and steam room shower and marvelous, tranquil forest view, this suite is sure to cast the spell you desire. Escape your world as fact becomes fiction in Merlin's mystical realm.

We stayed at Avalon to be near Osmosis day spa. The location is perfect, the room was spotless and our hostess could not have been nicer. I chose this location because they serve organic food and I have some food restrictions due to dealing with the aftermath of breast cancer. Hilary was very accommodating to my special food needs and our breakfasts were delicious. We were given good suggestions for local restaurants and things to do. The Inn is spacious and you are able to freely interact with the hosts and other guests or keep to yourself. They always have tasty snacks available as well as coffee and tea. Our room was clean and quiet, well appointed. The decor was lovely and the setting - in the redwoods - really can't be beat. They provided robes, flip-flops, wine glasses and a bottle opener. You can't get much better than that!

We stayed at the Avalon on our wedding night and it made for such a beautiful, peaceful space around the events of the weekend! The food was exceptional and Hilary was beyond amazing. She even drove us to our wedding venue the next day to get our cars! Above and beyond!! The room was really special and we really enjoyed our private hot tub time. It was all just so perfect and so relaxing! We will absolutely return for anniversaries and special getaways!

Lovely inn in the middle of giant redwoods. The inn keepers would wonderful, personable, professional and welcoming. The breakfasts were extensive and delightful, and the kitchen always had an array of beverages and snacks that were often gluten-free and delicious! The only negative would be we felt that the price paid was not worth the value received. Again it was delightful, however we have stayed at similar inns in the area for a lower price.

Hillary and all that help her, are outstanding . They will ruin any other B&B ability to receive higher marks than they have achieved . The location is perfect to all the area attractions and winery's . Hillary took care of getting our purchases shipped back to us. We enjoyed their company and conversation at breakfast and the evening wine n cheese tastings. Her cooking skill is top of the scale in wonderful. We are planning on another trip in a few years just because of the way they treated us as customers and better yet ,as new friends !
