Awesome find

5 on October 08, 2017

Loved the place. it is very remote, but only 10 min from downtown Santa Rosa. Sitting on the patio below the redwood trees and watching the sunset across open fields on what seemed like our own private place with no one else around was just perfect. Our hosts, Larry and Pam, were great and welcoming. If you want to walk to dinner and shops this isnt the place for you but if you want gorgeous scenery away from the rush of the cities of Sonoma and Napa this one can't be beat.

Felt at home

The location was excellent, Larry and Pam were more than helpful and great travel advisors. We loved the cottage room, the setting, but breakfast was a bit too rich for us, prefer a basic breakfast with fruit and yogurt. Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend.

Wonderful stay

This is a charming home and the owners were so gracious. We rented the cottage which was adorable and very comfortable. Lots of amenities. I would stay here again for sure. Nice location and the breakfast was "out of this world." If you come to Santa Rosa, be sure and check this out.

Wonderful Weekend

We stayed at this lovely bed and breakfast run by Larry and Pam. They really made us feel welcome. There was a wine tasting Friday and Saturday night., and both were small wineries with amazing wines. The breakfasts that were served were outstanding, with three courses. Dessert is served first because as Pam said, " Life is too short not to have dessert first," It was such an restful stay, and can't wait to go back for our next visit.

Wonderful stay

We just returned from our first trip to wine country and stayed at The Gables Wine Country Inn. We loved the home, the grounds and our hosts! The food was fabulous that they served us and they were very willing to share recommendations.
