Hollyhock Country House

1541 Denmark Street , Sonoma, CA 95476 USA (Show map)


Hollyhock Country House is surrounded by vineyards located on a quiet country road two miles from historic Sonoma Plaza. Confortable living in a 1920's farmhouse reflects the simple life from years past. Enjoy a charming bathroom with a clawfoot tub by a picture window overlooking the garden. The guest room is furnished with interesting antiques including an armoire from the early 1900,s, and original paintings created by the Innkeeper. A Continental breakfast is served in the original sunporch, and on cool mornings a fire burns in a freestanding fireplace. A time to enjoy a warm and cozy moment.

What a wonderful find! Quiet, clean, and what a delicious continental breakfast baked by the owner, Lucille. And Gray Boy, her cat, was mr curiosity himself. Thank you.

We loved staying with Lucille in her beautiful country house! So very different and very homely filled with wonderful things. Sonoma very near is a nice old town.

Funky Early 20th Century House

3.6 on September 06, 2014

We checked in a couple of days after the Napa Earthquake. Even though the house was in Sonoma there were a couple of cracks in the plaster. The house is in need of some TLC and the home of an accomplished artist. The bedroom is small and the bad a normal double -- adequate for one but crowded for two. Fortunately we had a cool spell in the evening as there is no air conditioning. Price is right and one of the few B&B's that did not want to sell you the whole 3 day holiday weekend. There is no shower only a bathtub with a funky plastic hose to use to wash your hair. There is a cat on premise -- so if you have allergies it may be an issue. Cat is actually very tame and always wanted to be petted. The hostess is charming and the breakfast good. We would not do it again however.

This was such a nice place to stay if you are looking for something different than a big hotel. Hollyhock is located in the middle of vineyards and if you arrive at night it may seem a little sketch, but we were inside we didn't want leave! It is beautifully decorated and the innkeeper was and very welcoming. Our breakfast was out on the sun deck and it was beautifully decorated with art and artifacts from her travels. We loved it!

Our wine country weekend get away was perfectly completed by our stay at the Hollyhock. Very peaceful, very quaint. Highly recommend! DYLLIC!

Quirky spot tucked away in Sonoma

3.4 on November 22, 2013

Lucille was a great host and we found her home to be very warm and inviting. We only stayed one night, but it was the perfect little hideaway for our one day wine tasting in Sonoma. The breakfast was tasty and Lucille shared her recent travel stories with us. It was very nice.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your reservation at Hollyhock Country House. I enjoyed getting to know you and hope to see you again. I like to think there are no strangers at Hollyhock Country House, only friends who have not yet met!

Clean and friendly, good value

3.6 on July 10, 2013

Our room at Hollyhock Country House was clean and comfortable, and well appointed. Since we were the only couple there, we did not have to share the bathroom--a definite plus. The owner/innkeeper is very friendly and nice, and bakes delicious homemade pastries from scratch for her guests every day. It's very low key, and we were free to come in late, which we appreciated. The only drawback to Hollyhock Country House is that it's on well water, which has a very distinct smell. The owner does use bottled water for her cooking, coffee, etc., but neither my husband or I wanted to bathe there because we didn't like the smell of the water. Otherwise, Hollyhock Country House is a good value compared to the other expensive options in the area. No two-night minimum was also a plus. .

Charming and Quirky

This was my first time staying at a B&B. Lucille greeted us warmly into her country home and made us feel very welcomed. We found the artistic decor unique and entertaining. Loved the baked goods she offered each morning. Would stay again.
