My wife and I, along with our adult daughter, stayed here one night as we were passing through the area on the way up to Sebastopol. The accomodations are generous, and welcoming, and truly like you are back in a home of your parents area. The accomodations are in a ranch house, directly adjacent to the vineyard, in a home that is quite literally out of the 60s. Yellow cumfy chairs, linoleum floors, mirrored closet doors, etc. The place is extremely clean and comfortable, and just like you are staying in your parent's older house.
There is internet connection and the bed was very comfortable. We stayed in the large room with private bathroom (the old master bedroom) and my daughter slept on a nice large futon pad they had available.
There was always a pot of hot water available for tea, and in the morning they came by, started the coffee, and put some breakfast items out on the kitchen table. They had some yoghurts, and cereal, as well as juice and milk (along with the coffee). They buy some pastries each morning from the local bakery that were excellent (we had almond bear claw, cinnamon muffin, etc.) along with a nice collection of local cheeses. Again, laid out nicely on a kitchen table that makes you feel as if your really at home.
The backyard eck is really calm and peaceful, and a wonderful place to have breakfast as you smell the fresh air and hear the soft chirping of the birds in the trees and the vineyard. The house has some lovely flowers out front, but relatively little in terms of landscaping around the house. There was also a really nice dog (Spot) who roams around the grounds during the day, but is kept by his house (made out of an old wine barrel) during the night.
In summary, it is a comfortable place that is just like staying at an old home of a friend or relative. While the host was very nice and friendly, and gave us some excellent suggestions for nearby restaurants and activities, we unfortunately did not get to talk to him very much (which is often one of the real pleasures of bed and breakfasts) as they had to leave early in the morning the day we left and were not around during breakfast. You also get a wine tasting of their wines with a stay there, but the normal wine tastings are just on the weekends, and we were there during the week, so we didn't get to try their wines out.
One small point - at one point during the day when the host came in to check up to see everything was OK, my wife was using the house bathroom since my daughter was using the bedroom one at the time my wife needed to go. The host kind of admonished us saying the bedroom bathroom was for us, and we were not to use the house bathroom since that is for any other guests (of which there weren't any other guests for the night we were staying).
Overall a pleasant and relaxing stay.
