We were unable to obtain reservations for the two nights we had available at any place we had previously stayed, so we decided to try the Toll House Inn. They have not been in business too long and are less known, being 5 miles from Boonville on the rode to Ukiah. We truly enjoyed the stay, especially for the nice ambience of the Inn including having breakfast outside in the back. Besides the room in which we stayed, we could see into two others. All were nicely period-decorated, as was the living room which guests freely use. Breakfast was self-serve buffet-style: food was good, but certainly not the affair one sometimes finds. The >60 acres are free for guests to hike and roam, which we did arriving late in the afternoon on the first day, with terrific (and quite private) views at the top of the hill/mountain. The only downside of our stay was that the road between Ukiah and Boonville is used more than I could imagine. As this was truly a Toll House to collect fares at one time, the Inn is sitting right next to the road. As the region is otherwise so quiet, a passing car or truck is noticeable, especially as we left windows open. Unlike us, I recommend getting one of the back bedrooms, or even better, the detached unit in back of the main house. In summary, I would book the Toll House Inn again utilizing that caution.
