The Inn is situated on top of a hill overlooking the beautiful town of Sonora. The innkeepers are exceptionally friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was delicious, the decor, exquisite. If you love animals, you'll love this place. They have beautiful dogs and kitties that welcome you outside. It's a lovely place to get some solitude yet you're so close to... More

I hadn't visited Sonora in 25+ years since I was a child. I have always wanted to go return and revisit as an adult to experience the history with a more sophisticated appreciation.. In searching the internet for lodging accommodations I stumbled upon The Inn on Knowles Hill. I was instantly attracted to the concept, the respect of the homes... More

Rhonda was welcoming the moment we walked through the door. I stayed in the Melvin Belli room and the view was breathtaking (and water pressure was amazing)! The breakfast is delicious. The grounds are beautiful to stroll around in. They think of the tiniest details, from the robes to the candy jar, to make your stay feel special.

Wonderful way to spend my Birthday! Not disappointed, this place is beautiful, my "Enchanted April". Thank you Rhonda for amazing food, warm hospitality, clean and beautifully decorated rooms! No expense spared to make this a comfortable stay. Loved the ducks. Can't wait to return?

I actually just came for a breakfast last week when my friend's mother came and stayed here. Rhonda was an incredible host to our group of ladies - she cooked an incredible breakfast for us - up there in one of the top meals I've ever had! On top of having an amazing meal in this beautiful B&B, we were... More

These pics are from The Inn on Knowles Hill brochure. A luxury bed and breakfast we had the good fortune to discover and stay at on our Northern California vacation. The mattress in the Herbert Hoover room that we stayed in was hands down the most comfortable bed and best night sleep I ever experienced! And we also stayed at... More

We arrived late Thursday Night to this gorgeous, angelically lit, gated place on a hill that took our breath away. In awe with every step we unloaded and entered into a flawless, speedy check in for our room. The decor, the smell, the music softly in the background was so inviting. The room was clean and perfect. Every area I... More

My sister, 9 year old daughter, and I spent two nights at the Inn on Knowles Hill this weekend and our experience from arrival to departure was absolutely WONDERFUL. We arrived in the evening and were astonished by the night's view of the inn. The pictures, while amazing, do not adequately capture the inn's beauty, quality, or detail. We were... More

We just stayed for two nights on our way from Las Vegas to San Francisco. We had interconnecting rooms that were spacious, spotless and beautifully furnished with very comfortable beds. We also had a balcony which was the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine watching the sunset. We came in unsure of how we would feel in... More
