“Million Dollar View at Auberge on the Vineyard”
Reviewed 6 June 2010

If you are looking for a quick getaway and want to enjoy a great B & B, stay at Auberge on the Vineyard. The location is fantastic and off the beaten track, just a few minutes from Geyserville and surrounded by the absolutely best boutique wineries in Alexander Valley. The staff is attentive and sweet and will arrange a day of wine tasting for you or any other activity your heart desires. They had mapped out wonderful wineries for us to visit and everywhere we went tastings were comped, the back roads were incredible and wines were even better. The property is well maintained, with a cozy feel and a great breakfast to start you day off in their newly renovated dining room. The grounds are pristine with wonderful views of Alexander Valley vineyards from your room. The rooms range from a one bedroom queen size bed to a fabulous suite for a larger group with wonderful pieces of antique furniture which can be purchased! We highly recommend Auberge on the Vineyard if your looking for a relaxing, clean, cozy place to lay your head and enjoy the "Million Dollar View" and fabulous staff.

We were pleased with the large, newly redecorated room, and the beautiful views across the expansive vineyards (where wild turkeys strolled under our balcony). Our hostess gave us an excellent recommendation for dinner in town. After a solid night's rest, we were treated to one of the best breakfasts I can remember. OUTSTANDING!

Upon arrival we felt more as if we were staying at a kind relative's house, rather than a stranger's. We were welcomed and made to feel right at home--like we'd know Anna for years. She gave us fantastic advise on which wineries, restaurants, and local attractions to visit, complete with maps and coupons! The breakfast and dessert Anna made was simply delicious. The house was clean and charming. The only negative, was that the mattress wasn't super comfortable, and the traffic at the corner was a bit noisy. The house doesn't have air conditioning, so we were a bit hot at night, but she said it was unusually hot that particular weekend. All in all it was a very memorable stay.

Great review...except for the comment about no air conditioning. All rooms and common areas have AC, it was 106 the days they were here, and with all the guests coming and going, I am sure some of the rooms were a little warm. The best part of the hot season is the evenings, when the temperature drops 30-40 degress!! That makes the hot days worth it!

When we booked the Shelford House, it was like throwing the dice. We had never been to the Napa/Sonoma region. We had a few recommendations from friends, but most of the recommendations were quite pricey. We stumbled on the Shelford House while searching the internet and based on the reviews decided to give it a chance. We were not disappointed. It is charming and not pretentious. Our hosts, Anna and Stan, were helpful, cheerful, and accomodating. They gave tremendous recommendations on local wineries and eateries (places to visit, as well as places to avoid) . . . they were unerringly accurate . . . and ultimately the money we saved by staying at the Shelford House, helped offset our wine purchases :).

And, before I forget the most important part, let me just say that the food was simply amazing. We have stayed at many B&B's across the country and have NEVER had food this good. Anna definitely knows her way around the kitchen. You won't be served basic sausage and eggs at the Shelford House. Every meal was exceptional; however, if you're lucky enough to visit on a day when Anna is serving her Blueberry Stuffed French Toast, you may never be happy with sausage and eggs again!

My husband and I stayed here for an anniversary and had a great time. It's for those who like the secluded countryside setting but enough nearby for a nice getaway. There are restaurants and wineries around the area and that kept us busy for the weekend! A very relaxing, cozy place with hospitable innkeepers.

This is a comfortable B & B set in a rural area right in the middle of wine country. It is clean and comfortable. The owners are cordial and the breakfasts are great. The rates are very resonable for a B & B in this area.

The Shelford house is very comfortable. We stayed in the Helen room and happened to be the only guests in the main house. The house was obviously very quiet, though this room is on the side of the house next to the road and we often heard motorcycles. It wasn't too much of a bother though. This room has a huge private bath, king bed, and flat screen TV.

Anna, the innkeeper is very sweet and makes the best eggs benedict i've ever had.

We spent the day kayaking down the Russian River with kayaks rented at Rivers Edge in Healdsburg. They were awesome!! Highly recommended.
