My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at Auberge on the Vineyard and in San Francisco. We stayed two nights at Auberge Vineyard in the Carriage House in the Hermitage Room. The antique furnishings were what we like. The room was bright with a wall of windows and natural light. The bed was very comfortable. The bedroom and... More

First of all, I felt as if I were in the farmhouse where I grew up. We stayed in the Sancerre room in the Carriage House and totally enjoyed the experience. Our room was old fashioned in appearance but very comfortable. The self check in is very easy, and the raspberry brownies were an extra bonus. The breakfasts were marvelous.... More

We had the lovely Carriage House ground floor room with the claw foot tub next to French doors overlooking the vineyard. Very romantic ! Fantastic French Gourmet Breakfasts and phenomenal late night baked goodies ! Cannot sing the Auberge on the Vineyard praises enough. We will definitely be back !

My Sweetheart surprised me with this charming getaway for our 3rd anniversary. Wow. He outdid himself with Auberge! We are a tad on the low-tech side & it was a nice surprise to find that - in addition to the free wireless Internet that others mentioned - there was also a laptop for guest use. Thank you! But mostly, thank... More

I'm pretty good at spotting introverts (since I'm one myself. No REALLY I am!), and I HATE sitting down at a table full of strangers, so I can relate to this reviewer's discomfort. Her husband, as I recall, was very extroverted and had a great time at the main table cavorting with the other guests, who hailed from all over... More

Stayed 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our evenings on the porch overlooking the vineyards. 3 course breakfasts were each unique and delicious. We stayed in the smaller room in the inn (with detached bath) but it had wonderful vineyard views and was very comfortable, and the bathroom is huge! Be sure to go into Cloverdale on Friday nights for the... More

If you're looking for a high-end fancy hotel in the heart of Napa, this might not be for you. My husband and I had been to Napa and southern Sonoma county in the past and wanted to explore the northern, less touristy part of Sonoma county and surrounding area. This charming Victorian B&B (located about an hour and a half... More

1 / This is a guesthouse to practice high price, needs a serious remolding! 2 / With vineyards on the back, the double door doesn’t close properly, pushing the 2 door panels are opened, they have not fixation on the floor. 3 / But what we forget to say, the house is roadside and the traffic starts around 4 am....

Wow! Garage sale!! Really!!! I feel like I just got slapped in the face for offering a free upgrade from our cheapest room (a queen with DETACHED bath) to our most expensive, expansive, newly remodeled honeymoon suite with private deck, vineyard views, Jacuzzi tub for two, kitchenette, flat screen TV and sitting area. We've yet to EVER receive a COMPLAINT... More

Looking for an excellent place to start of your discovery of the Sanoma County wine areas? Look no further. This accommodation provides a charming small scale atmosphere. Start the day with a gourmet 3-course breakfast (from your cooks Susan and/or Roxanne) and you will have an excellent start of the day to taste some wines at the many wineries in... More

We had a wonderful visit to Auberge on the vineyard. Rooms were impeccable; view was great; food fantastic. Could not recommend stronger. Roxanne (Owner/Inn Keeper) was a great resource and wealth of knowledge about places to visit and the lay of the land. Be ready to be spoiled.

The outside of the B&B and the views are lovely, however not all the rooms are very nice. My room was severely outdated-- the sheets and comforter looked as if they were from the 1980s (we were a bit grossed out by them), the carpet looked old, the wallpaper was a depressing color of yellow), the toilet looked old, and...

There's an old saying, "one man's trash is another man's treasure". Apparently what this reviewer considers "outdated", eg., antique claw foot tub and pull chain toilet and not to his/her taste, along with the other Victorian appointments like flowered wallpaper and carpets, is considered charming by most guests who visit and stay in our Victorian house. As for the bedding,... More
