Amazing. The watertower is unique, cozy and romantic with an awesome balcony. Check-in was easy. Highly recommended.
We loved our stay in the Water Tower. What a cozy corner on a beautiful piece of property. Because it's located next to a B&B, all the amenities of the place felt much like a hotel - nice sheets, shampoo and conditioner, towels. We would love to come again.
Had a fantastic trip to Glen Ellen! The Watertower was fantastic and is in a gorgeous location, with a beautiful view from the top of the tower looking out over the ranch and into the valley.
We will definitely be back again!
We had a great time at the Sonoma Water Tower. It was very quaint and beautiful. Lauren made us feel welcome and quickly responded to our questions. She even came by to give us an extra wireless connection because the main server was down due to a recent storm. The place is very cute and cozy, nicer than the pictures. It is January and we were able to get the place nice and warm with the wood burning stove and space heater. The grounds are beautiful. We explored the area and enjoyed the amazing views everywhere. I went for a little jog on the nearby country roads alongside the vineyards and it was beautiful. We had a fun-filled weekend that included Safari West, where we toured African animals in a jeep. We did some wine tasting of course, if you are a wine-o, this place is your dream! Finally, we watched the football (email hidden) in Glen Ellen with the locals. Unfortunately my fiance's team (the Steelers) lost...
Our only complaint for us is the bed was too soft. This is obviously personal preference, but for those with bad backs and don't do well with a soft mattress, this might not be for you. With two people, we sunk to the middle and my back was sore the 2nd day. However, I understand that you can't please everyone with that.
Thanks for a great weekend!
We had such an amazing stay!! The place could not be more beautiful and peaceful! The power was out because of a storm during the first few hours of our trip and Steven and Lauren were beyond helpful! They brought us candles, flashlights and wine and they even offered to cancel our res no questions asked. They were amazing!! Could not possibly give this place a higher recommendation! Soooooo lovely!
Steven and Lauren were both warm, welcoming, and responsive to my emails/texts. I appreciate how reliable they are.
The watertower is like no where else you'll ever stay (or at least for me!). Besides the unique 3-story layout, we loved the wood-burning stove that kept us warm in the evenings. The bed was so comfortable and every morning you look out through the french doors and see this gorgeous tree with sunlight behind it.
The pictures don't do the grounds justice. There are horses steps away, trees, every time you drive in you're in awe of how beautiful the landscape is. The location is also a short driving distance away from wineries.
We would come back again. Thank you Steven and Lauren!
My wife and I had a wonderful time in Sonoma especially in our unique and fun water tower. Everything was in perfect shape upon our arrival and Lauren made everything very easy. We look forward to our next trip to the wine country water tower. Truly a one of a kind experience in a beautiful setting
