Kenwood Oaks Guest House
Ranked #2 of 2 Kenwood B&B and Inns

Reviewed 17 June 2011

Joan was an amazing host and made sure that all aspects of our stay were nothing less than perfect. She made Kenwood Oaks feel like our home away from home. The grounds, with the aged oak trees, bird house and horses, are beautiful. The breakfast, including the granola, freshly picked strawberries, and muffins (Joan baked them!) every morning was amazing. This was one of our best weekends as a married couple and we cannot wait to come back!

This guest house is a remodeled home with new rooms and baths built specifically for guests. Located well off the highway just outside Kenwood , it has several acres of open grounds with beautiful, large heritage oak trees, garden and horses (not for riding.) Many bird feeders attract dozens of species just outside the living room picture windows. The owner is very personable and eager to please. There is wine and snacks available in the afternoon. It is a very comfortable, spacious and relaxing place to return to after a day of wine tasting or hiking. We plan to return.

Kenwood Oaks Guest house is a beautiful house on an equally beautiful property. It has been one of our most favorite stays! It is located very near many wineries and is convenient to both Sonoma and Napa valley vineyards. Our room was very nice and just perfect. Drinks and snacks were set out every afternoon and the homemade breakfast was both healthy and delicious. The owner provided many helpful local suggestions to anything we needed. Birds and wildlife abound making for a perfect get away. Would stay there every time!

A glass of wine,and a plate of brie, crackers and fresh fruit greeted us upon our arrival. It only got better from there! Joan, our gracious host, was warm, hospitable, and very knowledgable about the area. She gave us great recommendations about restaurants, vineyards (with free wine tasting passes,) wine tours and hiking trails. She made us feel very welcome in her beautifully renovated, environmentally conscious, guesthouse which is surrounded by nature. We saw her horses, and quails, hummingbirds,and deer on the property.
The rooms were very tastefully decorated, comfortable, and quiet with every attention to detail, including slippers and bathrobes. There was full time access to a living room, dining room, kitchen and small library.
Our breakfasts were great, including hot/cold cereals, fresh fruit, eggs, yogurt, toast, and snacks to go!
We just can't say enough great things about our stay; we arrived as guests and left as friends!

and when is the last time you heard that? Joan has truly made her place a little slice of Sonoma Valley heaven. Kenwoods Oaks is all the best of what a Bed and Breakfast should be. A fabulous and comfortable room and bed, great new bathrooms and lighting, and a quiet, warm and welcoming common area.
Joan is a great hostess, if you ask her any questions---she does not stop until she finds the answer. She completely knows the area since she has been there for so many years and is happy to suggest about whatever you feel like doing, seeing or eating. There are even maps in your room for the best walks from the house. Breakfast was yummy too. We cannot wait to return and we will.

Room Tip: The Valley Oak Room was GREAT, loved the bathroom

We go to Kenwood for Thanksgiving every year, but this was by far the best place we've stayed. The house, rooms, trees, and skyline were beautiful. Joan is an amazing host and made us feel immediately like family. One of the best things about the Guest House is how eco-friendly everything is, you don't see that effort at many lodging facilities. The scenery was beautiful, and there are even accomdations for your pet! I highly recommend the KOGH to anyone in the Kenwood area. We will be back!

My husband and I toured the coast of California and made the mistake of starting our stay at Kenwood Oaks Guest House. Why was this a mistake? Simply because no other hotel we stayed out during our vacation could compare. Every other night our vacation down the coast I said to my husband, "I wish we were still at Joan's house." Joan (and Honey) were such wonderful hosts and we felt like she was such a great friend.

From the cleanliness of the room, to the impeccable land, the horses, the breakfast, the location, the quiet and calm....honestly, I could go on and on. I think about Kenwood often and hope that we can return.

Joan, thank you for an amazing stay. We miss you and your gorgeous home!
