Walk or drive to downtown and enjoy food, wine and shopping. Visit any of the truly great retailers including SIGH, a sparkling wine bar or La Bogeda, just two of the truly unique offerings on the square.
The house is a green built home made of straw bales. Warm and cozy, quiet and serene.
Hosts will provide towels, linens and privacy. We can suggest many local eateries as well as wine tasting options and entertainment resources. We can recommend spas for massages and hiking trails within a short walk or easy car ride away.
You won't find a TV or a kitchen, just very reasonably priced accommodations.
Sonoma has a lot to do so come enjoy the town for a weekend or extended stay.
We have recently modified out check out time, moving it 1 hour sooner to 11am. We find this works for the majority of our guests and allows us better opportunity to manage the room.
They will have access to a room and bath that are separated from the rest of the house and not shared.
Interaction with Guests
We're happy to say hello, but find that most of the time our guests are as busy as we are and we seldom cross paths. We don't require our guests to "check in" and generally this seems to work, with many of our guests arriving quite late after a day of travel and dinner on the square.
Public transportation is mostly non-existent. There are taxi services and the town is small enough that biking is quite doable.
Quiet after 10pm, we try to keep our noise down until after 8am as well. We are early birds.
Very pleasant, light and airy room; much larger than I had anticipated. Thank you for the nice coffee service and the delightful garden spot to enjoy it; a nice example of a California native plant garden. We used your complimentary wine tasting pass at Landmark Vineyards on the way home. Thank you and we hope to return one day.
Steve was incredible and so are the accommodations. The shower and room were beautiful, nicer than many hotels I've stayed at. You can't go wrong here!
Steve's place was just perfect, clean and location was great. Especially great to have your own entrance to our room. Bed was very comfortable and the place was very spacious. I would recommend Steve's place to other travelers in a heart beat!
We had such a fantastic stay with Steve. The room was VERY spacious with our own private bathroom and deck. Even my picky husband was impressed and enjoyed the stay. Very comfortable and homey. We really enjoyed waking up and able to sit outside to have our coffee in the morning, as well as having our beverages on the deck in the afternoon. Very relaxing. We wished it was our place! Haha. Too bad our time was short there. Definitely would try to book the property again should we go back to Sonoma, and highly recommended to others.
Beautiful lodging. Very comfortable and clean. Peaceful and spacious! Steve and his family were very accommodating and prepared our room very nicely. Appreciated all the written instructions and email with information before our arrival.
Steves place was great, quiet, and had a lot of information about the stay and the surrounding area. Great place and air bnb experience.
