Located in an Enchanted Forest.


Newlyweds enjoyed Avalon tremendously!!!

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 !

Charming

3.6 on June 15, 2014

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.


Amazing time at Avalon!!

The house and the rooms are wonderful. Hilary was a great hostess. The property is zen like. We had a great time there! We definitely will return soon.


"There be faeries here".....a magical stay in Avalon

5 on May 23, 2014

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......
