Best bed-and-breakfast that ever been to

5 on August 19, 2017

Hands-down the best bed-and-breakfast I've ever stayed at The chef that cook breakfast was amazing and the rooms were extremely well taken care of


Avalon is a fantastic weekend getaway

4.8 on August 18, 2017

After booking the Avalon, I wasn't sure what to expect but was optimistic that this would be a great weekend getaway. My optimism was rewarded and then some - the room was spacious, the service and breakfast fantastic, and the forest surroundings very peaceful. Having a fireplace and private hot tub were extra pluses, but the main hot tub is also very nice. I highly recommend staying here.


Wonderfully quiet get away

Hilary was an amazing host and the entire experience was great. Her knowledge of the area was outstanding and the attention to detail was amazing! And the breakfast - each day was a new and great start to the day.


Magic!

Lovely retreat in the midst of an enchanted forest! More than ever dreamed. Hilary and Gary welcome visitors into their family ... lovely wine, treats, Hilary's breakfasts are over the top! Plus a fantastic classical "concert" by their charming son! Truly unique and amazing! Great place!


Fabulous B&B near Sebastopol

4.8 on November 15, 2016

Three couples booked the Avalon B&B near Sebastapol for a long weekend of wine tasting. Hilary at Avalon is fantastic. She helped us arrange reservations at some terrific small wineries, and made great recommendations for dinners. Breakfast was wonderful. She and her family and staff take great care of you, and are so friendly. This is our fourth time staying at Avalon and each time has been wonderful


Nice respite while touring wine country.

Amazing Service & Romantic Atmosphere

4.6 on October 24, 2016

I spent a weekend at The Avalon for my intimate wedding and had the most amazing time. Hilary, our host and owner, is very down to earth and wants to help you feel comfortable. Everything from sending us a bottle of wine and cheese and crackers to our room to even putting together my bouquet for the wedding! She's an absolute pleasure. The rooms each have lots of character and personality. There's no TV, which was my favorite part. Also, Hilary cooks breakfast and snacks around your diet preference/restrictions! I follow a gluten free diet and everything she made was super yummy!! Can't wait to return!


Beautiful place in the woods!

My husband and I came up for a weekend to celebrate a friends engagement near this Inn. We couldn't have been happier with our choice! The rooms are super clean and really lovely, the grounds are breathtaking, the inn keepers delightful, and the food was really really delicious! The steam shower in the Wizards Quarters was so fantastic, I didn't think my husband was actually going to leave! The only caveat is that your wireless network may or may not get service so be prepared! That one small thing not withstanding, we would book here again in a heartbeat! Thank you! Natasha & Dan
