“Fantastic Bed and Breakfast”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

The location is great, just steps from the center of town. The Inn is lovely and charming. The breakfast every morning was fabulous. Wine and cheese happy hour is provided in the evening and that was a nice touch. The room was large and very nice, with a comfortable bed and clean bathroom. I would definitely stay here again!

Looking for a place in Sonoma for a November reunion with two childhood friends, I found this B&B on Trip Advisor. It looked perfect, so I crossed my fingers and trusted the reviews. It was everything mentioned and more. The location was perfect, the owner, Valerie was very friendly and helpful, making spot-on recommendations as to where we should eat. (The Girl and the Fig and Cafe la Haye- both yummy) The lilac room with the extra Murphy bed was spotless and lovely. I slept in the pull-down bed and it was very comfortable and extremely easy to pull down or put back up. The breakfast was delicious both mornings and sitting on the porch waiting for Platypus tours to pick us up for our wine tour was very pleasant. Thank you Valerie! I'll be coming back next season.

Room Tip: There are only three rooms so book early. The French Lilac room got plenty of sun, but had room dark...

We stayed for two nights in the Hidden Oak Inn, and it was everything we like about staying in B&Bs. It was in a lovely older house in a quiet neighbourhood, the room was lovely, the hot breakfast was fabulous, the hosts were so helpful and pleasant, and the B&B was close to the centre of Sonoma so that we could walk to see the local sights. We also had arranged a wine tour through Platypus tours, which picked us up and delivered us right back to the B&B. This is a great place -- we would definitely stay here again!

We stumbled upon the Hidden Oak at the end of a long day of driving. We'd gone to Napa first, but hotels were booked, so we went on to Sonoma. We were so glad we did. Especially since we were able to stay at the Hidden Oak Inn. Valerie made us feel welcome from the minute we walked in. After we brought our luggage upstairs we unwound in the beautiful living room with cheese and wine. Perfect. The cheese and wine was almost enough for dinner. Valerie gave us very good suggestions for places to eat and visit, told us about a nice hiking trail and produce market. The breakfast was copious, delicious and healthy. Delicious Coffee was served in heated mugs, and coffee was availabile for guests all the time. The rooms were beautiful, beds incredibly comfortable. The Inn is a pleasant 10-minute walk from the city center. We stayed there 2 nights and loved our stay. We will definitely be back. We did take a bit of the Inn back with us -- a mug and a two coasters.

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!
