The breakfast here is outstanding! Rhonda (the innkeeper) serves a poached pear filled with vanilla cream, white chocolate rasperry muffins and many more delicious entrees. My kids love to play with the two collies that live there outside all day long. They are so friendly and well mannered, they won't jump up on you or even lick your hand! The... More

If only every bed & breakfast could be as fantastic as The Inn on Knowles Hill. The room was delightful and very comfortable. The breakfast prepared by Rhonda each morning was a gourmet delight. My daughter and I stayed as part of a group that took over the Inn. It was such fun and was like staying with friends at... More

Our family took over the Inn to celebrate our son's marriage in September. We were treated with incredible kindness by our hosts Rhonda and Fred. During our five day stay we were looked after like a 5 star hotel but it was nicer than any hotel as it was in a home. What a joy!The rooms were superb and food... More

Spent several days at the Inn with my family in July 2014. I travel frequently, and this is far and away the nicest bed and breakfast I have ever stayed in! Rhonda was a wonderful hostess. The grounds of the inn are interesting, and the decor of each of the rooms is charming and was clearly selected with thought and... More

The Inn on Knowles Hill was recommended to us by a bride whose wedding we attended in Sonora. She said it was the best place around, and she was correct. We enjoy charming B&Bs and this was one of the nicest we have found. The home is wonderful, both in location and design. The decor is wonderful and reflects the... More

Stayed at the Inn on Knowles Hill while attending a wedding/reception in Sonora. What a great place! Rhonda's hospitality and breakfasts are top notch. Room very comfortable. Central air conditioning is a real plus. Great value! Will definitely return.

We found this B&B on the internet and nothing shown there was exaggerated. Our "Melvin Belli" room was, as my lovely partner says, "Quaint and Lovely". Very clean without the usual dust found in many other places with excess clutter that the help can not find time to clean. The very personable and unique owner Rhonda with abundance energy does...

We recently returned to Sonora, the town that was our home for over 5 years. There's always a little angst for me when going 'home' after we move. Well, not to worry! Rhonda greeted us with such warmth, I felt immediately at home. Our room was so comfortable with all the amenities needed. The food, oh the food! The best... More

My husband and I have stayed in many B&Bs through the years and this one is right up there at the very top. This 1927 ten thousand square foot masterpiece home crowns the hill over looking Sonora. Rhonda, the owner, is just a non-stop energizer bunny who will do anything to make your stay a memorable one. Need a softer... More
