The Space

The Garden Snuggery is a sunny suite with views across the Valley of the Moon in the heart of Sonoma’s wine country. French doors open onto a terrace overlooking a rambling garden of rosemary, lavender and roses surrounded by redwoods, oaks and fruit trees. A meandering pathway leads through an arbor of grape vines to a vegetable garden below.

A separate entrance and patio on the terrace level of the wine country cottage leads to your retreat complete with a double feather bed and an over-sized claw foot bath tub. Coffee/Tea are included and may be enjoyed in the room, on the terrace or in the garden.

It is a four minute drive/bike to The Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa where restaurants & Spa Facilities await. Within ten minutes you may visit renowned Sonoma Valley Wineries or the Sonoma Plaza with art, music, boutiques & restaurants. Hiking & Biking are also minutes away at Regional and State Parks.

Lonnie, the Proprietress, formerly a Concierge at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa, will be happy to assist you with your wining and dining reservations. She is, also, a Docent & Guide with Sonoma Hiking Adventures and will direct/guide you to the best hiking trails in the valley.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • The room was beautiful and in a quiet street in Sonoma away from the highway and the busy areas of town. Great place if you are looking for a romantic and quiet get-away.

  • Cute, snug, comfortable, romantic, relaxing - whatever adjective you want to use to describe the Snuggery, use it. It was the perfect spot for my girl and I's weekend in Sonoma. The room is cute. The bed is comfortable. The location is convenient. The bathtub, view and garden setting were romantic and relaxing. See?

    Lonnie herself was nothing short but a splendid host. We loved chatting with her. She also gave us plenty of advice and recommendations before and during our stay.

    Plus, I clumsily left behind a few articles of clothing and she graciously posted it to me the next day. She's a gem and so is the snuggery.

  • No complaints here - everything was great. My husband and I didn't spend a lot of time here, but it was perfect. The bed was comfy, the claw footed bathtub lovely, and there was also a cute little sitting nook. We really like our privacy and like exploring on our own, and Lonnie accommodated. We also really enjoyed the little neighborhood cat who followed us around - he made the stay even more memorable! Lonnie also left us some nice recommendations for local vineyards and wineries and we had a wonderful experience doing a tour nearby. Lastly, the garden area is just lovely. We wished we were able to spend more time to explore the area and enjoy Lonnie's snuggery!

  • My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the Garden Snuggery for a little weekend getaway in Wine country - highly recommended!!

    The layout is very cute and cozy - the owner Lonnie does a great job adding a few extra touches, like leaving out some wonderful pour-over coffee for you to prepare in the morning. And we really enjoyed that there was only a bathtub, forcing you to slow down and relax a bit. Btw, I highly recommend bringing some romantic music and a bottle of champagne! Location is excellent.

    The only minor heads up that I'd give to prospective renters is emphasizing that it is a private room - as advertised, you don't have the entire place to yourself. There's definitely tons of privacy and it feels like your own place, but not quite 100% as you on rare occasion you can hear others moving around the house.

    Bottom line is that we had a wonderful stay, and highly recommend others to check it out!!

  • My husband and I decided to spend Christmas in Wine Country. After looking at many options, we chose to stay at Snuggery because of the wonderful view and room. It really felt like a place we could snuggle up into and enjoy our time together.

    Lonnie has tastefully decorated her place and I loved the little touches! Lonnie was also a pleasant host - she made sure we had what we needed and also provided us with a couple complimentary tasting cards.

    Also, as we were in wine country over Christmas, I was really worried that I would not be able to secure a table at a good restaurant for dinner. I asked Lonnie to help me with a reservation. Unfortunately the restaurant was fully booked. But Lonnie managed to find me a table at an even better (and highly rated restaurant - Bistro Jeanty). My husband and I had a great Christmas meal there, all thanks to Lonnie!

    Thank you Lonnie!

  • Beautiful space, well cared for with a thoughtful host. Please note there is only a bath tub, I missed the 'no shower' footnote - distracted by the view! The outdoor space is lovely, simply add a small fire pit for a year round delight. The room included both a space heater and fan which allowed for guest climate control. My only negative is the lovely room is located below the main house, and the shared furnace vents removed the element of privacy which left us feeling like we were sitting in on the host's conversations directly above. Overall the place is maintained at a spa level retreat from decor, cleanliness to ambience.

  • We had a wonderful stay at Lonnie's the snuggery is a beautiful escape and we really felt like we had the beautiful garden and view all to ourselves. Lonnie struck the perfect balance between being a very attentive host and giving us space. She gave wonderful advice and guidance about the area and added greatly to our stay in Sonoma.

  • My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Snuggery. The room is very private since it has a private entrance and it opens onto it's own patio with a beautiful garden to look at. My husband enjoyed having a glass of wine overlooking the garden in the evenings. The room Itself is beautifully decorated and gave the feeling of being at a bed and breakfast. The bathroom has a bathtub, which was very relaxing, and there was a small fridge in the room, which allowed us to keep any treats we bought in Sonoma. In addition, Lonnie was a great host. She was very friendly and helpful with recommendations for wineries and places to eat. Overall, we highly recommend the Snuggery!

I love the outdoors, particularly hiking in beautiful places. I'm a docent hiking guide with three State Parks in Sonoma County and I am a guide for Sonoma Hiking Adventures. I, also, enjoy bringing more fun & ease into my guest's vacation experience and happily make wining & dining reservations for them.
