We visited Sonoma with another couple in the late summer/early fall. The setting for the b&b was beautiful, convenient to downtown and all the wineries, but far enough away that it was a very peaceful, relaxing setting. We stayed in the Mural Room while the other couple took Sophie's Room. We shared a bathroom. The rooms were quaint, though obviously older. Everything has a patina. There were some odd knick-knacks and the broken doll sitting at the top of our closet was a little creepy. Fortunately, that's right up my husbands alley. The bathroom was nice, but the tub/shower was short for me, and I'm only 5'3". My 6' husband had a particularly hard time showering. The floor boards of the room upstairs were quite creaky, you could hear the music the people above us were playing and the beds weren't the most comfortable ever, but after a day full of touring vineyards and wineries or a day trip to the Winchester House, it wasn't too difficult to drift off to sleep. Breakfast was delicious. Fruit, yogurt, hard boiled eggs and a selection of pastries (served warmed). Tea or coffee and orange juice was available. There was no tv and no internet, but the disconnect was a nice thing. The service was wonderful. We'll definitely stay again should we make it out to the west coast again.
