We recently returned home from a B & B vacation trip to Northern California. Two of our nights were spent at the heavenly Honor Mansion. From the moment we arrived and were greeted with the surprising news of a complimentary room upgrade, to our reluctant goodbyes with owners Steve and Cathi Fowler as they presented us with a departure gift, we were wrapped in the folds of pampered luxury! Our upgraded room was a beautifully decorated private cottage next to the koi pond with extra amenities such as our own supply of movies and music, personal welcome note, clawfoot tub and shower, umbrellas, slippers, wine, and a private off-street parking space. We enjoyed strolling around the immaculate gardens and grounds that enclosed the pool, tennis, croquet and bocci courts and relaxing on the deck by the koi pond. Each afternoon, we were treated to a bounty of cookies, gourmet appetizers, wine and coffee. Of course, lunch was not a necessity after endulging in the three-course, unbelievably scrumptious breakfast personally served by Steve with a smile and sincere conversation. Steve and Cathi were naturals at making us feel at home and yet very special. Steve was also very helpful in suggesting wineries to visit and restaurants to try for dinner. It was undoubtedly the nicest B & B we've stayed at over the years. We would highly recommend Honor Mansion to our friends and family.
