“Beyond Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

Book this now - you won't be disappointed! The Inn is clean and offers more comforts than you can imagine - and is just 2 blocks from the center of town. The owners are generous and welcoming - and very helpful when it comes to planning your time if you need advice. The rooms are spacious, and quiet. The pool, jacuzzi and daily wine+ cheese happy hours are wonderful. We've been raving about our 2-night stay, and are already looking forward to going back! (Don - you better be ready to run! And Valerie - prepare some of your famous homemade granola!)

Room Tip: California Oak room was quiet and spacious! Comfy new bed.

My fiance and I stayed here last September 2012 a couple of days after we got engaged. The host was very friendly and outgoing. We loved that they have a pool and hot tub for guests to use because it was very hot in Sonoma during our visit. This BnB is just a short walk from town which is very convenient for going out to dinner. We also walked into town to rent bikes and then bike around Wine Country for a day. The prices of places to stay in Wine Country can be out of control, so I would definitely recommend this place as a more realistic (and enjoyable) place to stay.

Three years ago a group of friends and I went to Sonoma for a music festival and stayed in Santa Rosa. We ended up sitting next to Valerie and Don Patterson on the lawn for the concert and soon discovered they own a B&B conveniently located about 2 blocks off the Sonoma plaza. MUCH more conveniently located. We'll probably never stay anywhere else! Not only can you not beat the location... you can walk home from any number of great restaurants and even a few wineries, but at the Hidden Oak Inn there are lovely spacious accommodations and incredible attention to little details. Delicious breakfasts, happy hour wine and cheese, freshly baked cookies... all provided by such lovely people! and Valerie has great restaurant and winery recommendations too. We'll continue to go back without a doubt!

Hidden Oak is a fine B & B, located two blocks from the beautiful Sonoma town square and downtown shops/restaurants. The rooms and public areas (indoors and outdoors) are comfortable and quaint. There are lots of "continental plus" breakfast choices, as well as a hot item. Valerie provides food surprises through the day. The location is perfect for travelling up the Sonoma Valley, and is only minutes from the Napa Valley. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

My husband and I took a trip from Chicago to Sonoma for our five year wedding anniversary. We have stayed at other bed and breakfasts, but this exceeded expectations. Valerie was an amazing host. The property was beautiful and whatever you may need on your trip was available for use. We even borrowed a picnic basket/cooler for one of our day trips to the wineries that was already filled with plates, napkins, wine glasses, etc. All we needed was the food and wine to make it perfect. We loved that it was located close to downtown so we could walk to get dinner and one of the closer wineries.

If anyone is looking for a great getaway, this is your place.

Room Tip: The Garden Room is Perfect!

The review is a few months overdue, but necessary none the less. I turned 30 in July and celebrated with a week in wine country with a best friend of mine. Valerie made the experience that much more enjoyable as every little detail at Hidden Oak Inn was spectacular! From the beautiful rooms, delicious breakfasts, daily happy hour wine/cheese tastings, to the pool/hot tub area and the pleasantry of Valerie herself and her lil pups (who do a great lil dance for the guests) everything was so amazingly eloquent while being warm and inviting as well. I plan on visiting Sonoma regularly (birthday trips seem to work well) and will be calling Hidden Oak every time. When you find something amazing, why try and trump it anywhere else?

Valerie was so knowledgeable of the local area, great advice on where to eat, where to run/hike, and was so pleasant and accomodating to all of her guests needs. She ran a clean, comfy, relaxing, and restful B&B. The wine passport was a real deal as well!! Thank you for making my 30th adventure to Sonoma absolutely fantastic!!

See you soon!!

This was our first time to ever stay at a B&B and to be in Sonoma. B & B is in a great location and is an easy walk to restaurants and shops. Clean, casual and comfortable inn with friendly innkeepers. Innkeeper, Valerie, was very helpful pointing out vineyards to visit and other sites to visit while in CA. I would recommend this place to visit...very peaceful and beautiful is Hidden Oak and Sonoma.
