My husband and I stayed here for the last two days of our honeymoon. We had dreary weather (cold and rainy in early April), but we still had a perfect time. We stayed in the Cirque du Sonoma courtyard room. It is at the very top of the rooms that are outside of the main house, and it is definitely a lot of stairs to climb (and for my new husband to tote our luggage up - lol). The plus side to that, is that the deck on the outside of the room overlooks the quaint town. We felt personally welcomed by the innkeepers. Upon check in, we were given a tour of the property and guided to our rooms where they gave us instructions on the fireplace, etc. In our room, they had a rose picked from the garden and a note congratulating us on our marriage. It was very welcoming. The innkeepers were very helpful at the wine and cheese reception on giving us advice about wineries in the area, towns like Healdsburg to explore, and making dinner recommendations and reservations. The room was large and very comfortable. The tub and shower were very nice. There is a small grocery store a block or so away from the hotel. I walked there while my husband was taking a nap, and picked up some bottles of wine, cheese and crackers and in the evenings we sat on our deck or enjoyed the fireplace. It was perfect. Like other reviews have mentioned, there is no cell phone reception in Occidental (and it is spotty in the surrounding areas). This didn't bother us at all as we were trying to getaway. The breakfast was good. They had a nice spread of food. One of the mornings, my hot entree was super sweet and rich, but I ate fruit and granola instead and was fine. The only thing I regret is that we didn't stay here longer, it was the high note of our honeymoon.
