Laura & Chris have a beautiful home. The photos, as you can imagine, don't do it justice. The room is HUGE and the book collection alone was enough for me to sit and get lost in forever! The neighborhood is very quiet and super close to local markets, restaurants and cute places to grab breakfast. My girlfriend and I had a great time relaxing in the jet tub after a long day hiking among the redwoods and sunbathing at Johnson's Beach. Laura was very personable and even offered us a glass of wine while sharing her story of the new winery business she has opened. We would have taken her up on her offer to visit the tasting room if we didn't have to leave so soon. Perhaps next time!! =)
We always have a lovely time at Laura and Chris's AirBNB. Comfortable bed, spacious room and bath and totally quiet.
Thanks again for a great stay! Chris and Brian
Big room, conveniently located in the heart of Russian River Valley. Laura and Chris were very accommodating and took good care of our needs. They also had good recommendations for local spots.
Laura is the consummate hostess! From her famed aperitifs to her cooking, you couldn't ask for a better airbnb experience. I was looking for somewhere to run and Laura recommended the most beautiful running trail. Unfortunately, I had a bad oyster and spent most of Saturday confined to the bathroom and bed. Forestville is a great jumping off point for both Point Reyes and Healdsburg. We enjoyed a splendid dinner at Underwood in Graton just a short drive away.
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Laura & Chris were wonderful hosts. Simply wonderful. Upon our arrival, Laura offered great restaurant suggestions, vineyards to visit, & lots of places to go locally. Additionally, in the mornings, she always had homemade granola, yogurt, & coffee. She even offered to give us tastings of her home spirits. We didn't get a chance to do that, but next time....FOR SURE ! Privacy was perfect, shower and jet tub (bath) were amazing & we will DEFINITELY stay there again next time we are out in Sonoma County. We couldn't more highly recommend this place.
Laura and Chris were very friendly, genuine and accommodating hosts. We got their late and were caught alittle off guard with the ad saying private entrance, when we actually entered thru the front door of their house. Felt awkward, but worked out just fine. Very nice room, with large bath and comfortable bed. Location was great for the different wineries all around. Laura was quick to respond to requests for directions, restaurants suggestions etc. We would stay again if our travels take us back.

Our weekend stay at Laura and Chris's home was exactly what we needed to unwind. They were very welcoming and friendly, we enjoyed getting to know them. Their home is lovely and the room was spacious and bright, exactly as pictured. They offered us a light breakfast with delicious homemade jam and gave great recommendations to their favorite wineries and restaurants. Thank you again for your hospitality!
Host family was very friendly. The house was in a very nice neighborhood and exactly as it was shown in the listing. The bedroom was very comfortable and bright. We really enjoyed the host family and would choose to return if we are in the area again.
Laura was an absolutely wonderful and gracious host. My bf and I stayed with her one weekend to celebrate our first year anniversary by exploring Russian River Valley. Not only was she tremendously knowledgable about the region and helpful with advice on places to visit, she made us feel extra welcome with delicious homemade breakfast every day (mmm apple pancakes!) and friendly (but not in any way overbearing) companionship. The room was just as spacious and clean as advertised, and the sizable tub relaxing. Thank you, Laura, for a lovely stay!
Chris and his Daughter Miranda were lovely guests. They were out most of the time getting Miranda settled in at Pratt so I didn't get to spend much time with them. But I stayed with Chris and Laura a few years back when I was on a road trip in California and had an amazing time. The entire family is welcome back any time.
Laura and her husband were delightful guests. I was not able to be home much, however they kept in contact with me regarding their arrival arrangements and any questions they had during their stay. They both are very outgoing, personable and respectful people. All our conversations were enjoyable and I hope they return sooner than later.
Laura was a great guest to have. Friendly and respectful. Very helpful with suggestions for us since it was our first time hosting.
Even though Laura was only here for a few hours, it was nice hosting her. She was friendly, easy going and left the room and bathroom spotless. She even separated the linens and pillows that she hadn't used in order to help me save on laundry. I would love to host Laura anytime.
Perfect guests would love to have them stay again.
We've been Chris and Laura's guests many many times, and each time we leave their wonderful place refreshed and renewed. The views from the guest room and the adjoining vine-veiled deck really do look like Tuscany (well, pictures of Tuscany; we haven't actually been to Tuscany; why go to all the way to Italy, we say, when we can go to Chris and Laura's?). The food and conversation are always inspired, and the pool is one of our very favorite places to take an early morning swim. I highly recommend Chris and Laura's B&B to everyone!
This has got to be the best deal in all of the wine country! Not only is this country home beautiful,secluded, and quiet, it is splendidly located with sweeping--truly Tuscan--views. And if you prefer your quiet times to be laced with a solid shot of intellectual stimulation, you will find that this is a family made up of world-class conversationalists. For years now, this has been a touchstone environment for our family, and we have never left Laura and Chris and their wonderful place without feeling refreshed and renewed. We've often compared our stays to being in a unique and lovely B&B. Now you can see what we mean.
