“Hunting Lodge Experience”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Step back into the 1880s with this beautifully refurbished lodge built by Charles Crocker to entertain his friends, the Stanfords, Huntingtons, et al. The Inn is a B&B with a beautiful main lodge and several cottages. Marcia and Tony Babb were gracious hosts who served a delicious breakfast on the outdoor deck and provided many extras in the large main lodge room overlooking the Alexander Valley. The property has a beautifully maintained swimming pool and is an excellent way to change gears after a day of winery exploration. The main lodge rooms are very private and would be perfect for a romantic getaway.

Room Tip: Several rooms accept dogs.

We stayed at the Old Crocker Inn from July 29th to August 4th (2014). We really loved our stay here. Marcia and Tony are very hospitable. There are lots of extra perks like free DVDs to borrow, games in the dining room, free sodas/water, etc. The pool looked very nice but we never had time to use it (too many other great things to do in the area). The three things that matter most were awesome - the sheets, the shower head and the food! The sheets were very soft, the rain shower head had great pressure and the breakfasts were fantastic (always two courses)! The inn is also very secluded and surrounded by nature. It was so beautiful! I highly recommend this inn to anyone staying in the area.

Room Tip: I was torn between a private cabin and a room in the house. I chose the room in the house (because i...

This is a nice place to stop and relax, but it could be so much more than what it is right now. The room we stayed in was lovely and cosy. Little chocolate treats had been left for us, the bathroom had a wonderful jet bath in it, and the bed was super cosy. Tony and Marcia were super hosts and helped us when we asked for a crib to sleep our infant in. Breakfast was fruit smoothie (yummy) and waffles. It is lovely and peaceful here, and a beautiful location to sit on the deck/porch with some nice wine and cheese. a great place to forgot about the world.

The pool area, while clean, was untidy and pool furniture could use a spruce up. the general appearance of the inn could use a sprucing up. It is looking a bit messy (yards etc). The dining hall is lovely and spacious. We would stay here again if it wasn't in cloverdale.

We returned from a girls weekend. We chose to stay here based on price and proximity to the Dry Creek Area, as our focus was going to be exploring the wineries in this area.
Marcia and Tony were excellent hosts. From the little snacks in the main area, to their recommendations for dining. Our room, was quaint and clean. It was more than enough space for our purposes. It was a little dated but nothing too crazy. We really enjoyed our stay!

, We spent 3 nights there the 1st week of June & loved this place. The bed was very comfortable, the wrap around porch & comfy chairs right outside our door was a great place to unwind with a glass of wine. The breakfasts were excellent with fresh fruit every morning & the hosts were congenial with excellent recommendations about places to visit. We would definitely stay there again!!

Room Tip: Our room was the Huntington & would recommend it. They also have private cottages.

This B & B is definitely off the beaten path. It is a very tranquil setting. Not much in the way of extra amenities. The rooms are comfortable with a little historical décor. We loved the wrap around porch for sitting and chatting in the am and pm. The pool area could use a little updating and a Jacuzzi would be a wonderful addition. Tony, Marcia and their helpers were all very nice and accommodating. While Tony is not a "chef" he is a very good cook. We enjoyed our breakfast

I surprised my significant other with a weekend in wine country and could not have stumbled upon a warmer, more inviting, authentic and wonderful B&B. Tony and Marsha make the most amazing breakfast and kindly accommodated food allergies with delectable alternatives. Will be bringing family and friends here in the future! - Irina

Room Tip: Crocker room is amazing!
