On recommendation from a friend who lives in Philo we stayed one night at "The Madrones" The compound, as another reader noted, is an enclave buildings in a Tuscan style surrounded by beautiful...

Stayed here for 2 evenings after a 5 day backpacking trip. "The ridiculous to the sublime" is an expression that comes to mind. The Madrones is a delightful guest quarters well worth a visit and the only slightly higher tariff than other hotels in the area.

The Madrones was a very nice to spend our time just outside of Boonville and walking distance to Philo. Architecturally very well designed and a nice eclectic mix of guest rooms and wine tasting spaces. We were two couples staying in Guest Quarters II. It is a large living room / kitchenette with two very nice bedrooms and 1 large... More

My husband and I celebrate wedding anniversaries with three other couples in late June. We have been doing this for over 30 years! We stayed in the "house" at The Madrones, which has four absolutely gorgeous rooms. We celebrated for two nights and had an absolute blast. Cindy was our go-to hostess and made sure all of our needs were... More

This was our fourth year staying there and we love it! We have stayed in Guest Quarters I, II, III and the Kitchen and loved them all for different reasons. The Kitchen was our favorite as it has the private deck and kitchen area. The grounds are lovely and nicely maintained and the rooms are spacious and well appointed. Jim... More

We stayed in the Spare Rooms. It consisted of a sitting room, bedroom and bathroom. The sitting room was about 15 x 15 in size, a small twin bed, hd television with directTV, a wet bar and two comfortable wing chairs to sit in for reading and watching TV. The bedroom had a king bed, side tables with lamps for... More

The Madrones was recommended by a friend. We stayed in the Kitchen, one of four rooms in the old,house, which have all been completely redone. It was wonderful! Spacious, two comfortable beds, a deck and overlooking the pond. It is quiet and surrounded by beautiful,rose gardens. The Stone and Embers restaurant is very good, unfortunately open only for lunch. We... More

The property is beautiful with a large rose garden, 4 Tasting rooms.and a great location in the valley. Near Hendy Woods State Park numerous wineries and a short drive from the coast. We stayed in guest room IV overlooking the Goldeneye Vineyards. The room was spacious an well appointed. Looking forward to a return visit.

I hate to recommend this great place because I want the valley the stay UN NAPA, but we had such a great experience that it would be unfair to Jim and Cyndee to not rate it 4 or 5 stars. You have wineries and food right there and several an easy drive on 128. So sneak into the Anderson Valley... More
