“Wonderful host and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

We recently spent 3 days here and had a tremendous time. Les and Kym are wonderful hosts and Graham is a great cook....and all are extremely interesting with a lot of life experiences to share. We had stayed here under the previous owners and Les and Kym have done wonders in their renovations. The rooms are all very well appointed and inviting while the main house set up is much improved. It is a great location from which to explore the area and also be walking distance to the sqaure in Sonoma with its many shops, wine tasting venues and great restaurants. I would highly recommend An Inn to Remember!

An excellent place to enjoy the beautiful Sonoma Valley. The Jasmine Room cozy and comfortable. The attention paid to detail and cleanliness delightful. The Host was very welcoming and the breakfast was delicious.

The breakfast was amazing, and the room was small but comfortable. I loved the available extras (water, snacks, happy hour). We had a flat screen TV in the room and a great jacuzzi tub in the Mimosa Room. They also have a community hottub outside for all the guests to use. The innkeeper had some wonderful suggestions for wine tasting, and the B&B organization in Sonoma offers a wine-tasting passport (so you can get free tastings at many of the great local wineries). Very close to the square and the many restaurants there.
The only small nit-pick is that the room advertised a King bed. We have a king at home, and this was a Queen at best. Granted, a larger bed wouldn't fit in the room with the rest of the furniture, but it was just a small let-down as to the expectations. Would not have prevented us from renting the room if they said "Queen-sized canopy bed" instead.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat! Perfect place for our first getaway after the baby.

My finance and I were one of the first couples to visit An Inn 2 Remember under the ownership of Kym and Les. Our first visit was so special that we visited again in 2011 for my birthday celebration and brought along another couple. Kym and Les were very helpful and accommodating and made our stay an experience to remember.

From the Friday and Saturday evening Happy Hours (with wine and appetizers), the delicious breakfasts served by Dana and Graham, tips on what wineries to visit and places to eat, to my “special birthday surprise”, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The heavenly beds were a comfortable touch, and the upgrades to the rooms and grounds made it picture perfect.

Located in downtown Sonoma allows you the convenience of many wine tasting rooms and restaurants within walking distance. This B&B is one of those special finds that you don’t experience often. We will definitely be back!

Wife and I stayed at an Inn to Remember March 10th-12th and loved it! Great couples getaway, very memorable. Cute Victoria style B&B, the lodging is not in the main building, but very close. Appetizers served at the gazebo in the afternoon were good, they go quickly. We stayed in the Jasmine Room, small and cozy with a little fireplace, tv and jacuzzi tub. The room was around back, probably a little more quiet than the others. Breakfast was amazing, culinary experience both mornings. The B&B comes with a wine card that allows you for free tasting at several area wine tasting rooms. Management was friendly and very helpful with food and wine suggestions. Park is very limited in front and can be difficult to back out of when traffic is heavy. larger parking area is across the street down a small driveway. Very close proximity to excellent restaurants, the plaza area was wonderful, you can spend an entire day just walking around the plaza eating and tasting. If you're not into wine Hopmonk Tavern is just 10 min walk, good micros. Rin's Thai Restaurant very good also. Grounds at AITR were very nice, with beautiful flowers and water features. We will definitely return with friends and family!

Room Tip: Jasmine room around back is quiet, plus jacuzzi tub!

In San Francisco/Oakland area for 3 nights and wanted to spend a night up in wine country. An Inn 2 Remember was recommended to me by another local B&B and I am glad I made the call. Was able to make a reservation for one night (Sun) with out issues.

The Inn is a charming place with gardens and water features all around. The Inn is literally a 30 second walk from the square. It is across the street from The Girl and the Fig. The room (Cornflower) was nice and the bed was very comfortable. There isn't a TV but I could use a break from television anyway.

Les and Kim, the owners, are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. They were able to recommend different tasting rooms to visit and local wineries with good tours. The room was moderately priced and pretty much comparable to other places in the area that I researched.

The Inn has a happy hour, hot tub, and bikes which I didn't use though. I was shown how to operate the hot tub and access the bikes, I just didn't really have enough time. There is a back yard fire pit table where I did sit around at night with a couple that was up there and socialized. I believe this is where the happy hour is. The Inn also offers a wine card which gains you free access to 30+ tasting rooms which are right on the square. This is a huge plus, and b/c I was only there for a short time, Les was able to recommend some good tasting rooms and a winery to visit. Les is also a pilot, and if conditions are right and he is available, he sometimes takes guests up for a fly. I was lucky enough to have this opportunity and am so glad I took advantage. Definitely a highlight.

Overall, I had an awesome time for my day and night in wine country. I would definitely recommend this B&B and would stay here again. The town is quaint and the whole stay was great. Friends were in the area last year and recommended Sonoma over Napa and I'm glad I found An Inn 2 Remember

Room Tip: There are 2 rooms in the main house and additional rooms in the rear building

i stayed at An Inn 2 Remember for three nights. it was my first experience at a B&B. It was truly a once-in-a-lifetime weekend. Les & Kym were most accomodating and welcoming and friendly. they were also full of local information for wine tours and more. Breakfast, promptly at 9, was delicious and fresh and just out of the oven! the weekend appetizers served in the cute outdoor space was perfect and yummy. honestly, we felt like one big family by the end of the weekend and i wished i could have stayed longer!! all the workers were also very friendly!!! the Inn is 1/2 block from the town square/plaza, so perfectly located for meals and shopping and wine tasting! i
