In the 7 years now of staying at B&Bs, this is the first that we have encountered that seems flawless. Our room had double sinks - and plenty of space for toiletries, unlike many other highly-rated places that we have stayed at. There was good parking on a well-paved surface, far from the road, which could hardly be seen through the dense redwood trees - notch up several more advantages not found elsewhere, including the toothbrush holder. The hostess was welcoming and her husband, son, and gentle orange cat were unobtrusive, despite my cat allergy (the cat is not allowed in the guestrooms). Breakfasts were multi-course and tasty but not large. Our room had its own two-person hot tub and a discrete rear entrance. The feeling of privacy was tremendous. We showed up with fresh oysters and a shucking knife, and the hostess kindly provided counter space and plates. The small brook behind the house provides a calming background sound at night. The wifi works! There were none of the annoying engine sounds that some places have due to pool or hot-tub motors.
It is a short drive to several small nearby towns with restaurants and wine-tasting rooms, and a longer drive into the large town, Sebastopol (20 min or so). You are in the heart of the Russian River Valley wine area here, and local wine is served at the nightly wine hour. There's lots of good wine-tasting nearby.
