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.

Our stay in wine country was topped off by an enjoyable stay at Avalon B&B. This B&B is in a beautiful, tranquil setting with towering Redwoods and the serenity of a gentile, backyard stream soothing you to sleep at night! Hilary and Gary are fabulous hosts, making us feel most welcome, and their gourmet breakfast is unsurpassed. They are also very organized with information and suggestions for a superb vacation in Sonoma Valley. We give this B&B our highest recommendation, and we will return! Greg & Anne Jones Hayden, ID

I had purchased a two day stay at Avalon, after months of searching for the perfect place to propose to my girlfried. Of course I was a wreck wanting everything to be perfect. Even before my stay our host emailed me and asked about my girlfriend and myself so that she could taylor her services to our specific needs. I must say if you love your partner, and you want to show them. Choose Avalon. Every detail was perfect! Thank you Hilary

Hilary, her staff (and family) made our stay - the first stop on our honeymoon - a truly memorable and wonderful experience! The suite we stayed in was quiet, comfortable, secluded and well appointed. My only wish is that there was a table for me to use as I like to draw. The service was really wonderful. From the suggestions on things to do/places to see, to the nicely made-up room when we would return from a day of exploring wine country. I can't express how great the service was. In the past when I traveled I would rely on the chance I would bump into something interesting - Hilary and staff (+ AJ) hold a wealth of knowledge on the surrounding area and truly helped to make our week in Northern California a memorable one. I must say the cost of staying there was really quite a bit lower than I think they could charge! Very affordable! The cleanliness... spotless! I've stayed at first class places, I've also stayed in less than first class places and have had the feeling that certain areas of certain inns/hotels/resorts are kind of dirty (you know what I mean). I never had that feeling anywhere at Avalon! The property is maintained to the highest standard. Dining was exceptional! I only rated it as a 3 out of 5 star because we missed a few wine events - which was our fault. The other thing I sort of didn't like was the "late hour" of breakfast - 9am. With so much to see and do around I kind of wanted to leave by 9am after an earlier breakfast. All things said - Hilary and her staff are very accommodating and would have altered their schedules if need be to accommodate their guests, and did on at least one occasion for us. If you're looking for a luxury inn that is personal, comfortable, unpretentious and truly a hidden gem under the redwoods then look to Avalon as your go-to place when visiting wine country. You won't regret it!

The innkeepers were very hospitable; I felt like I was visiting friends versus staying at a B & B, The breakfast was delicious and thoughtful. Everyone's food allergies were taken in to consideration and the food was fabulous. There were so many extras...a gym, fresh-baked cookies, wine hour, suggestions for dinner and activities etc. There are only 3 rooms; we stayed in the Wizards' Quarters...The room was beautifully appointed and gave you the sense that you were in King Arthurs' court and time. We would definitely recommend this inn..
