The Kenwood Guest House draws you in with its beautiful house and surroundings. The natural scenery and play of sunlight, horses, Jasper and Smoke, even the ladder for pruning, all beg for the finest photographer. The peace is soul replenishing. Joan is a warm and welcoming host, her eye for detail to offer her guests the most comfortable stay catches... More

We had the most incredible weekend here in Kenwood while staying at the Kenwood Oaks Guest House. We actually booked the beautifully detailed rooms in the home for our guests, and we couldn't have been more pleased. Joan's personal touches both in style and design made our stay absolutely wonderful. From the comfort of our room to the preparation of... More

This is a great place to stay when visiting Sonoma wine country and the local area. My wife and enjoyed 4 nights here in mid October. The property is lovely and quiet yet not far from downtown Sonoma. The location makes it easy to travel to several of the different valleys and the Napa area is only a short, yet... More

We were lucky enough to book a room at Kenwood Oaks Guest House during Napa's very busy fall season. This was a great experience for us. We stayed for two nights and Joan was just a great host. We really enjoyed meeting her, and she was super helpful in navigating the area and sharing information about things we were interested... More

Thank you so very much for your kind words! Glad we were able to host you due to a cancellation in our busy Harvest season bookings, and that you enjoyed beer tasting in our area so much. It IS quite exceptional, along with the world-famous wines, too (of course)! NOTE TO READERS: We are located in SONOMA VALLEY and not... More

Recently my husband, sons and I had the good fortune to spend 3 nights in the cottage at the wonderful Kenwood Oaks Guest House, a little gem in the heart of the Sonoma wine country. Joan, the proprietor, could not have been more accommodating. In addition to stocking the cottage kitchen with every imaginable breakfast treat (fresh fruit and yogurt,... More

We just returned from a magical weekend in the wine country. Could not have been more pleased with our lovely stay at the Kenwood Oaks Guest House. The home is tucked away in a very tranquil and private location, nestled among the oaks. However, it is still close to many fabulous wineries and incredible local restaurants. Our room was delightful,... More

We've stayed with Joan at Kenwood Oaks Guest House twice and both times we rented the entire house and cabin for our extended family. Joan, the proprietress, is friendly and flexible. Her home is wonderfully decorated and pristinely maintained but not stuffy. It's easy to find a corner to relax. I highly recommend Kenwood Oaks Guest House.

My girlfriend and I enjoyed peace and quiet amongst the beautiful oaks and gardens at the Kenwood Oaks Guest House. Besides our surroundings, we loved Joan - her grounded approach to life and hospitality. I would trade a hotel room for this cozy ambiance any time. The rooms at the Kenwood are beautifully appointed with quality attention, and Joan is... More

The peaceful, lovely setting, the beautiful well-cared for home and the genuine hospitality of the hostess Joan make this a tempting place to get away from it all. And when you're finished doing that, it's also the perfect place from which to go forth and taste wines, visit wander about towns, etc. Joan takes really good care of you, and... More
