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.

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 !

Charming sums it up. From the setting nestled in the redwoods, to the home, the rooms and the innkeepers. We felt completely at home, but still had privacy that we desired. We would recommend this B&B in Sonoma County to anyone visiting wine country in California.

Soon after arriving, we found out that indeed we were entering a very special, magical place! Hillary has captured the theme of Avalon--- knights of olde and faerie lande---brilliantly in her three rental suites. Our stay in The Enchanted Forest suite was exquisite : olde castle motif hallways, luxury bed and room decor, antique furniture , and best of all a private hot tub for two outside our door under the redwoods beside a babbling brook. Really!! To say our accommodations exceeded our expectations is accurate here. Every morning we were treated to a different gourmet breakfast served in the dining room. Wow. What a way to start our day. Although there were plenty of Wine Country brochures displayed, we found that asking Hillary was always the best first step to planning our day. For example, the Platypus Wine Tour and drive to the Armstrong Redwoods recommended were unforgettable parts of our Sonoma vacation. How many faeries will YOU discover in Avalon? Sorry, no hints from us, but we will definitely stay here again and keep looking......

This is a great B&B. We loved the delicious breakfast, the steam room in the shower, the creek behind the property, and the hot tub. Amazing setting in the middle of redwoods. Truly magical place!

This place oozes with character nestled in the middle of a redwood forest. You can't see the neighbors or the road and you feel like you've detached from reality. Stunning English gardens surround the place adding to its charm. The innkeepers Hilary and Gary are like visiting friends. Hilary makes an amazing breakfast and there are only 3 rooms so it's always intimate. It's the only place we go when we are in Sonoma county.
