The Avalon B&B outside of Sebastapol in Sonoma Valley is an absolutely delightful place. GPS is very handy for finding it if you have never been there. It is delightfully quiet. If you have your smart phone or other computing device surgically implanted on your body, and can't seem to exist for five minutes without consulting it, Avalon may not be the place for you. No TV's in the rooms, no cable or satellite, and no service (we have AT&T, and there was no signal). The proprietors, Hilary and Gary are wonderful hosts, and have made some accommodations if you really must connect, but, relax, you are on vacation. There are only three rooms at Avalon, and all are very cozy and nicely appointed. Breakfast is a delightful social affair and the food is delicious. On Friday afternoon, Hilary had arranged for Wes Lauterbach of Lauterbach Vineyard to come over for a wine tasting and discussion of their winemaking techniques. The discussions were fascinating, and the wine was excellent. There are a number of nice restaurants in Sebastapol, and Hilary can make recommendations. She also has great recommendations for vineyards to visit for wine tasting. Avalon is the essence of what you would expect from a B&B, and we highly recommend it. We have visited twice, and have had a fabulous time on both visits.
