Driving aimlessly from Yosemite, we stopped in Sonora to check out the town. We went to one place that offered a room in the basement with no windows. No. Then called a B&B that was full and they recommended Barretta Gardens Inn. We arrived at this beautiful home owned by Astrid, our lovely hostess. The room was wonderful and lovely....

I have been visiting this very special and beautiful place for ten years. I first stayed there while on business trips to Sonora and have returned many time for weekend getaways, holidays, and special occasions such as family birthdays and reunions. The rooms are comfortable, cozy and beautifully furnished. The grounds and gardens allow you to take a pleasant walk...

My girlfriend Jacky and I have been coming here for years. It's our favorite B&B. Charming accommodations, lovely grounds and Astrid is like family. Jacky's mom turned 100 in August and after the celebration we organized a mini reunion holiday with a few out of town relatives. Great breakfasts, lively conversations. Everyone had a marvelous time. Fond memories for all...

We visited Barretta Gardens Inn a while back and were very impressed with the rooms and breakfasts including the service. We enjoyed our stay in the Gold Country including strolling the gardens of the Inn. It is located downtown Sonora within walking distance to theater, restaurants and shops. We will be back.

The rooms are fantastic and this time we stayed in the Cabernet Sauvignon Suite with a luxurious jacuzzi bath, very comfortable Tempur mattresses and an...

Thanks for returning to Barretta Gardens Inn. I am so glad you went to the Big Band Jazz in Columbia since I am so proud of having such fantastic musicians to enjoy nearby.

Peaceful place located above town. Beautiful views, lots of nooks to enjoy the out door terraces and water features while escaping the world. We stayed in the Zinfandel room and hardly knew the inn was booked solid. Breakfast every morning was delicious. From fresh fruit, chicken sausages, eggs to pancakes, bacon and fresh fruit, to a traditional Swedish potato with...

It makes it so worth while when guests as yourself appreciate all the work that has gone in to create a beautiful room like the Merlot or any of the other rooms. The gardens are now almost finished and it's only been 11 years. ;-)

We loved the surrounding beauty, wonderfully functional room, the extensive knowledge of Aatrid about things to do in and around the County as well as the delicious breakfasts that were prepared.
