I stayed here one night in February 2007 on my way (the long way round!) from Sonoma to San Francisco.
When I drove up to the property, I have to admit I did wonder what I'd let myself in for, as it had an air of the Adams Family about it, and as I looked for the door, all seemed to be in darkness and it took a few minutes before the door was answered.
But any misgivings were quickly dispelled. The welcome was warm, my room was lovely with a good bed, a gas fireplace in the corner, and a nicely appointed bathroom. Everything looked very clean indeed to me, though the innkeeper immediately spotted a cobweb that had been missed!
The owners were there when they were needed, and magically disappeared when they weren't. They were incredibly helpful with planning my activities the next morning before I drove into San Francisco.
It's a genuinely historic building, full of touches of the building's history and the Locke family that lived here for many years. (It was originally built by a Dr Locke who had come over in the 1849 gold rush to make his fortune, but ended up continuing his medical practice.) The interior has been very sympathetically restored, but without the bedrooms feeling nineteenth-century spartan at all!
It is a fairly secluded site on a quiet minor road, so it is very peaceful at night.
There is free internet access for guests, either wireless or via a pc on the landing.
After a really good night's sleep, in the morning I was delighted to find a really high quality breakfast waiting to be prepared for me, including (unbidden) eggs benedict (an absolute favourite of mine) served with asparagus, and other goodies that I'm afraid I've forgotten.

It's fun to venture out to new tasting rooms opening in historic farms such as Heritage Oak and Jessie's Grove.
