#2 of 5 B&Bs / Inns in Geyserville
The Inn is located in Geyserville, a small town in the fertile Alexander Valley, where the traveler will enjoy some of the most spectacular views of the wine country in California. Nothing is more beautiful than the vineyard scene, and the vineyards of the north coast of Sonoma County are some of the most magnificent in the world. The Inn offer a grand view of Geyser Peak, the worlds largest geothermal field, and the steam clouds rising from the Geysers are prominent above the surrounding hill area. Guests enjoy the rural atmosphere and wine buffs can take advantage of the wine tasting at small wineries located along the back roads of the Russian River Wine Trail. Other diversions await the guests -- the river, the redwoods, Lake Sonoma and Warm Springs Dam are just a few miles away.

This is a neat place to stay if you enjoy Victorian atmosphere. Breakfast was outstanding, grounds shady and cool and there’s a salt water pool. Ron and Colette are helpful with lots of suggestions. Walking distance to good restaurants. Very laid back, easy going place. If for some reason you hate Victorian decor this place is not for you. We enjoyed our time there and Sonoma county is quiet with lots of good wineries nearby and not as many people.

Wine country has gotten so pretentious, it's hard to justify an overnight stay. Everything is so expensive ($600/ni and up) and most require a 2 or 3 night minimum. It's gotten obnoxious lately. However, the Hope Merrill House proved to be the exception. It took some searching to find it; the property doesn't show up on your typical internet searches, but my tenacity paid off. It was far more affordable than anything else at the time I was looking and they allowed a single night stay. It was nice -- comfortable and quiet -- and breakfast was very good. You can find nice restaurants within 2 miles (though they were fully booked when we visited), many wineries within a short drive, and downtown is not far. Covered parking on-site at the property. Made for a nice overnight visit and I would recommend.

Stayed in the Sterling Suite for 3 nights. Overall impression was that we definitely overpaid for our accommodations compared to what we have paid in the past in this area. For their “best suite” and for $350+/night, it doesn’t even come with a welcome bottle of water in the room. And in their rooms with TVs, they charge $100 more/ night so you’d think they could bring that into the 21st century...instead it is a very small, TV/ VCR combo tube set. The suite does have its own patio area and entrance/exit which is nice, however we could not take advantage of the private patio use this time of year (& their pool is drained and that outside area is closed off as well) so you would think that their prices would be adjusted accordingly. Extremely small bathroom in this suite. The bed and pillows ( flat/worn) but not the worst I’ve slept on. The furniture in the suite appeared dirty ( esp the couch) and was not such that I wanted to spend time sitting on it. The breakfasts overall were good. The other reviews about the owner Collette are accurate and people can definitely take her the wrong way. If you don’t like a lot of talking from the owner than this is not the right B&B for you..I was definitely ready to get up from the table every morning before she was done talking. Convenient location to many wineries and walking distance to a couple in town as well as a couple of good restaurants. However, I would not stay here again.

We recently visited Sonoma Valley for wine tasting and found this gem to stay during our visit. This is a restored late 1800’s Victorian home with much of the original woodwork. Our hosts were wonderful and invited us to make ourselves at home. The breakfast served was unlike any other that I’ve ever had at a bed and breakfast. Homemade pastries, eggs, and local produce and meats were served. If you will miss breakfast they will provide you with a breakfast to go. If you are taking a trip to northern Sonoma valley this is the place to stay at Geyserville. It is truly a hidden gem!

We stayed in this 1870 Victorian B&B two nights. Can't get in before 3:30, so don't try. We got a nice tour of the public parts of the home upon our arrival. Got good recommendations for dinner. The breakfast was scrumptious. We were able to enjoy the saltwater pool in the backyard with 95+ temperatures.
