This was my second stay at the Sonoma Chalet. I love this place for it's rustic, quiet comfort and Joe is just so wonderfully laid back. I feel like I'm visiting a family member in the country. The property is right up against a beautiful piece of undeveloped land just a 5 minute walk from Sonoma Plaza. We enjoyed the bird song outside our window in the morning, the afternoon sunshine on the sweet little patio (Indian Room and Sophia's Room) in late afternoon and the hot tub in the evening. Thanks Joe! Keep up the good work.

We loved it!

When we arrived, we loved how casual and laid back the owner was. We had a lovely room "Indian Room" with a sweet little patio that we enjoyed our evening wine and cards on. The breakfasts were served on a beautiful patio. We had total peace and quiet and I loved how remote it felt even though we were only a couple of minutes from downtown. If you want rest and relaxation without being bothered, this is the place to go. We highly recommend it!
