We had an amazing time. We arrived and was so surprised when they up grated our room for our Anniversary. The rooms are so unique and we loved the terrace. Breakfast was so nice and the staff made you feel right at home. Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: The rooms are all unique and a different theme. Check their web page. Check the pool by mistake, no...

Every room is designed with a different theme. Don' t envision tacky,...think really creative! I promise you will be delighted as I was. Breakfast was a nice treat. The evening wine social was nice especially on their terrace! Loved this unique inn!

Since we're just coming from Santa Rosa (only a 30 minute drive away from Occidental) - one might think we'd want to travel a farther distance to have our anniversary get-away... but they would be wrong. This Inn is delightful - we've stayed in their Wine Country room and their Kitchen Cupboard room because we love the spa tub and I love the fireplace. We've always been greeted warmly - and on our second visit for a babymoon/anniversary celebration we were pleasantly surprised to see a cupcake for 2 waiting for us in our room! The restaurants around the Inn are all wonderful (we recommend Bistro des Copains for a special treat) and look forward to the breakfast in the morning. So really, a perfect get-away - and the best part for us is that it isn't hard for us to "get away" to it!

My husband and I stayed here for the last two days of our honeymoon. We had dreary weather (cold and rainy in early April), but we still had a perfect time. We stayed in the Cirque du Sonoma courtyard room. It is at the very top of the rooms that are outside of the main house, and it is definitely a lot of stairs to climb (and for my new husband to tote our luggage up - lol). The plus side to that, is that the deck on the outside of the room overlooks the quaint town. We felt personally welcomed by the innkeepers. Upon check in, we were given a tour of the property and guided to our rooms where they gave us instructions on the fireplace, etc. In our room, they had a rose picked from the garden and a note congratulating us on our marriage. It was very welcoming. The innkeepers were very helpful at the wine and cheese reception on giving us advice about wineries in the area, towns like Healdsburg to explore, and making dinner recommendations and reservations. The room was large and very comfortable. The tub and shower were very nice. There is a small grocery store a block or so away from the hotel. I walked there while my husband was taking a nap, and picked up some bottles of wine, cheese and crackers and in the evenings we sat on our deck or enjoyed the fireplace. It was perfect. Like other reviews have mentioned, there is no cell phone reception in Occidental (and it is spotty in the surrounding areas). This didn't bother us at all as we were trying to getaway. The breakfast was good. They had a nice spread of food. One of the mornings, my hot entree was super sweet and rich, but I ate fruit and granola instead and was fine. The only thing I regret is that we didn't stay here longer, it was the high note of our honeymoon.

Room Tip: I personally am glad that we stayed in a courtyard room which isn't attached to the main house...

It's always a rewarding feeling to receive such a positive review from one of our guests. I would like to add to the comment that Verizon cell service is available in Occidental and the Inn does have line land phones in each rooms plus we have wireless service through Comcast.
Thank you for the review.

I stayed here while on a bike tour, and I think this place might be the most beautiful I've ever seen, beginning with the courtyard of rose gardens and the wrap-around porch with white wicker furniture and green plants. The original part of the inn is decorated with hand-painted murals and interesting furniture, making little sitting areas cozy and private. There are also outdoor sitting areas. Each room has a different theme: my bed was a tree as were several of the lamps in the room. The jacuzzi had ducks in the bottom to welcome me. There was a deck overloking the town. The bed could not have been more comfortable. The cooked-to-order breakfast the next morning was perfect and more than plenty.

Stayed two nights recently and loved it. The place is charming, the afternoon cookies (with tea or coffee) were fabulous and the morning breakfast was yummy. Didn't take advantage of the hot entree but instead went for yogure, fruit and granola (plus another baked good fresh from the oven). The service was great and very homey. The room exceeded our expectations. Comfy, comfy, comfy bed; nicely appointed bath and ample sitting area. We even turned on the fireplace for a little ambience. Loved falling asleep to the sounds of the fountain right outside our window.

We thought the owners were gracious and hospitable. They are real pros at running a B&B. The outside gardens are lovely.

The town has a few restaurants and a few stores. Thought our dinner was the worst meal we had on our 12 day trip from Seattle to San Francisco. Hard to call that food "Italian." The breakfast/lunch place in town was delightful. Ate lunch outside on a glorious day in September. Very good food for reasonable price.

The zip lining place is 5 minutes away and fun (and easy).

Highly recommend this B&B.

An anniversary getaway. Two nights was a day more than we planned, but once we got there we wished we had planned to stay 3 days. No cell phone reception, no TV in the rooms, no radio signals, and didn't miss anything. Our last visit to Occidental was 36 years ago. A lot has changed, but it doesn't show. The Inn at Occi is BEAUTIFUL - gardens, exterior, common areas, and fresh spacious rooms. Wow.
LIght breakfast is included, featuring fresh fruit bowl, house-made granola(do not miss this), and a special entree that's different every day (Quiche on Sat, Eggs Benedict on Sun). Wifey ordered scrambled eggs with veggies - no problem. Many restaurants within walking distance, Too many local shops to list from groceries to wines to herbal meds. within 20 minutes drive are more great restaurants, wineries. Bicyclists ride through or stay. Its a hub for many forest-farm-ocean routes.
