This property is exceptional and remarkable in every way. Off the beaten path with amazing amenities and view. The most beautiful hardwood madrona floors and the most exquisite linens and towels. The owners are awe inspiring people and I felt so welcomed and would highly recommend this dream getaway.

My husband and I stayed here for what we thought would be a romantic getaway - far from it. The location is nice, but don't be fooled by the pictures...this is a shack masquerading as a cottage. It felt dirty and run down, not at all what we were expecting. Half used bottles of food products littered the counters. We... More

So I'll start by saying this isn't your typical hotel. If you like cookie cutter familiarity and a continential breakfast in the lobby this isn't the place for you. However, if you're looking for just the opposite then this is a hidden gem. Tucked back off a winding road the owners have created a relaxing oasis that makes you feel... More

I went back and forth about reserving this cottage. From the photos, it seemed very romantic. The cottage is appropriate for the price in and around Sonoma. However, it is quite remote from the town of Sonoma. We were scheduled to visit several wineries and the drive back and forth was not worth it. There is a nice deck. Large... More

We were lucky to be able to arrange an home exchange with Carolyn for our place in Edinburgh, Scotland. We stayed in the Joyluck house so this review refers only to that property. First, it has an amazing location, close to both Sonoma and Santa Rosa, in the heart of the Sonoma Wine growing region. Food and wine were very... More

Don't let the pictures fool you...this place is living on it's laurels. Envision a once popular grande dame hotel that has been neglected and is now filled with cobwebs and in disrepair. But dangerous to the point where you and your spouse could die! For example; there is an old 4 burner gas stove in there. All four pilot lights... More

This place was amazing. It is a little difficult to get to, but well worth it. The winding road to the top of the mountain had some fantastic views of the grapes in Sonoma County. When arriving Carolyn & Gary were very friendly and made us aware of all the amenities associated with the property. They include a suspension bridge... More

We stayed here after our wedding in Santa Rosa before heading out to Hawaii. All I can say is we still remember and love this place, even after being in Kauai for the next week! Beautiful location up in the mountains but still close enough to Sonoma and Santa Rosa for quick day trips. And how many hotel rooms come... More

I actually stayed here previous to March 2010, but this was the furthest back I could go in terms of date of stay. I wanted to plan a romantic getaway for me and my husband because we are always busy with work and our children. We had a fabulous weekend. The room was beautiful and the scenery was breathtaking.

Clair de Lune is just a wonderful getaway! It's always a gamble to find a good place online, but Clair de Lune was more than my boyfriend and I could have expected and we will definitely come back when we need a break from city life and our daily routines. The little cottage is small, but it is a gem.... More
