Absolutely beautiful spot for a wedding. The owner is a lot of fun and his Rhodesian ridgeback is a terrific greater. Guests from all over the country have raved about what a wonderful time they had. If you want to have a wedding in the wine country, this is the place.

We found Relais du Soleil at the last minute and what a great find! Tim and Lareen were the perfect innkeepers and this was by far one of the most relaxing and fantastic places we stayed on our entire California vacation. Tim's wine was superb, and the breakfast he fixed the following morning was out of this world. We will... More

An authentic guest ranch experience in the heart of Glen Ellen wine country. This was our 2nd stay here, and we really enjoyed Tim's delicious and innovative breakfasts, great conviviality, cheese and barrel-wine tastings in the barn, and checking out the massive coyote sculpture that the resident artist will feature at this year's burning man festival. The bunk house was... More

Our whole family stayed here for my sister's wedding in October...it was an amazing dreamy floating time. Tim is wonderful, and so hospitable, we felt welcomed from the very first moment! For those of us staying with Tim at the house, and for all those who attended the wedding it was a truly magical, rustic, glowing experience! What a lovely... More

We came out for the wine and stumbled across Tim and his B and B. This is not the Ritz but it has a lot you can't find at the Ritz. Tim is a great host! He is friendly and interesting to talk with. When we were there, he was making his own wine and his enthusiasm for the process... More

Just had our wedding at Relais last weekend and we couldn't be happier. Relais du Soleil truly is an otherworldly experience. All outdoors with a distinctly intimate, family feeling and amazing views of both vineyards and sweeping hills. Mature growth trees of walnut, fig, oak, and others dot the landscape and give off a dreamy glow at sunset. Horses frolic... More

The reviews all looked good so we were pretty shocked when we drove up -- and it only got worse... The host gave us a glass of wine and chatted a while and we then asked to see our room. Because we had a small dog we were in the bunkhouse (I think) which turned out to be a ramshackle... More

With the red-tail hawks circling above, and the oaks and pines lazily moving their branches in the gently cooling breeze, it is difficult to muster the energy to do anything much more than simply sit and take in the charm of this sunny valley, especially when Tim produces one of his own wines, made on the property. But with the... More
