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!

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

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!

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

My husband and I spent a long weekend at Avalon and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The hospitality of Hillary, Gary and Jerome was outstanding. The breakfasts each morning were fresh, creative and delicious! I would highly recommend Avalon if you like a quiet place in the woods to relax. There were 2 hot tubs to use which looked inviting, but we did take advantage of them, maybe next time!

This was the second time we stayed with Hilary & Gary and everything was fantastic. The room was exceptionally comfortable and the amenities were great. The breakfasts were wonderful combining great cooking with local ingredients in a delightful manner. We'll definitely be back.

We really enjoyed our stay at Avalon, in the Redwoods outside Sebastopol, California. The Home is beautiful. Each of the Three large rooms, almost suites, is beautifully decorated and has a private entrance. We enjoyed a Hot Tub while surrounded by giant Redwood trees. The breakfast was really excellent and quite elaborate. These folks run a superb operation and have pride in the fine accommodations they offer. We'll be back again...and again...
