Interaction with Guests

If a guest wishes to seek me out with questions; to chat about their visit; or anything in between --- I'm available and have a genuine interest in people. However, most people prefer privacy and want to come and go as they please, so I work it out to be away or to keep myself occupied in another part of the place when they're here. It works well. Many times I see guests only when they arrive (to give them a key) -- everything depends on their agendas and mine.

The Neighborhood

1. The quietness -- this has been remarked upon
2. 2 blocks south of a vineyard
3. Also, 2 blocks west of beautiful hiking park with 3 lakes.
4. Plus 2-3 miles from freeway 101

Getting around

Many times I've made arrangements for limo or taxi services for guests. There is no bus services.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We had a brief but wonderful stay with Barbara. She is very gracious and accommodating hostess and her house is very charming, spacious and comfortable. The bedroom where we stayed is small but very clean and nicely done. I was also nice to coffee and orange juice for us in the morning. The house is in a very safe and quiet residential neighborhood in Windsor. The location is very convenient to Healdsburg downtown (many good restaurants - we loved Barndiva - and shops) and only about 5 minutes to downtown Windsor where we had a wonderful dinner at The Himalayan restaurant (highly recommended). It is also near all the wineries in the Russian River area. I would recommend Barbara's Wine Country Home as a very comfortable and convenient place to stay in Sonoma County.

  • We had a great brief stay at Barbara's home. She is a thoughtful host and her home is comfortable and quite lovely. Not only would I recommend it highly to other Air B & B'ers but I'd recommend it to my close friends and family. Barbara's home is very close to the home of my good friends and I know I'll consider staying with Barbara again on future trips. It's a really great location easy to get to off 101 and centrally located in Sonoma County.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Barbara's place! She is a wonderful host and we were very comfortable. Her place is very close to Healdsburg and there are beautiful biking routes and wineries nearby.

    Response from Barbara:

    Thanks for your positive response --- Healdsburg, biking, wineries!! Sorry again about the 'pillow' situation --- I will re-write my guest notes!

  • This was my second stay with Barbara. Again, I was very last minute in my request, but she welcomed me back. She is a wonderful host, finding just the right balance between visiting and allow private space. I would highly recommend this room. There is a very nice feel in this home. and it is so reasonable for the area. Give it a try. You will be glad you did.

  • I'm so appreciative of Barbara's flexibility. I was a very last minute one night stay due to a family crisis and was welcomed like I was staying a week! Hospitality seems to come naturally from Barbara. It was obvious that she had paid attention to every detail that would make a guest comfortable. She is so friendly, I felt instantly comfortable. I enjoyed sharing airbnb host conversation as I am a host also. She was even gracious when I had to get up early and then had to return later for my forgotten phone chord. You really should give this place a try. It is lovely in every way.

  • Place was very comfortable and she certainly knows how to make someone feel at home! I would stay here again.

  • We LOVED staying at Barbara's house. It's so comfortable and cozy and the bed is really soft and we honestly got the best night's sleep we've had in quite a while. Barbara is super friendly and fit us in on short notice. The room feels super private, too. There's a screen separating it (and a private bathroom, with tub and shower and plenty of bathroom amenities) from the rest of the house. There are a lot of nice little details, like chocolate by the bed and wireless Internet and coffee in the morning and access to the big TV. We would certainly stay there again ... and probably will on our next visit to the area. Oh, also it's really conveniently located to tons of quaint little towns and wineries. Great stuff! Thanks, Barbara!

  • Barbara was a delightful host. Her lovely home is in a quiet neighborhood that is easy to find and close to 101, Foothill Regional Park, downtown Windsor, and the wineries. She provides off-street parking, and the room was comfortable and the bathroom was spotless. I would definitely stay with Barbara again!

  • Barbara's home is beautiful and you can feel the love and warmth just coming through the door. The bed was wonderful, the bathroom spotless, and she has so many sweet little extras for your needs. Things I don't even have for myself in my own bathroom. She really thinks of everything. So knowledgeable on her town and the surrounding area of Sonoma County. I feel very lucky that we found her and she's now apart of our happy memories of too short a weekend in the amazing wine country north of San Francisco. Hope, hope, hope to come back again. Hugs to Barbara! What a sweet person!!

Hi --- I love sharing my home (way too much space for just me). For many people staying at a B and B is a new experience and their main concern is that of privacy. Knowing this, I strive to give all my guests just that privacy! You'll be given a key when you arrive and from then until you leave your time will be your own. I do hope you'll check out my listing!
