I've stayed here twice and loved it both times. This is truly a unique setting. You are in the wine country, turn off on a small road, across the bridge and to a charming Tudor house among the redwoods. It is really like a fairy tale. You are in your own little world surrounded by the sights and sounds of...

Hilary demonstrated tremendous warmth and a phenomenal ability to provide individual, special service. My girlfriend has a limited diet. Hilary made the most wondeful breakfasts to accommodate that diet. She simply went above and beyond anything we would have expected. The room was lovely and warm. The central fireplace was great. The surroundings, with gorgeous trees surrounding the house, was...

Much of our experience at Avalon was positive. As has been noted before, Hilary (and her family) and Jerome are friendly, and exceptionally helpful. The breakfasts were superb and the always available snacks were much appreciated. The bed was comfortable and the room had everything we could have wanted. What surprised us was the fact that the two rooms in...

Dear Guests: Our B&B is snuggled down in the forest, next to a beautiful creek, and at the base of many giant redwood trees. The sun streams in the windows of the rooms for only a few hours each day (especially during winter months), and since you'll be out enjoying wine country in the middle of the day, you might...

I took my husband to Sonoma Co. for a weekend trip (from Pennsylvania) for his 40th birthday. The Avalon was definitely a highlight of the trip. Please remember, when you stay at a B&B in the country, you are not at a major hotel in Las Vegas. By that I mean--come here for nice company, great breakfast and peace and...

I stayed at Avalon during my honeymoon, it was a lovely experience! It was romantic and very peaceful, it was hard to leave our room. We stayed in Guenevere's Tower, nice cozy fireplace. The room was decorated in very good taste. The grounds are beautiful and nice to walk around...enchanting! Hilary and her son AJ were wonderful inn keepers, (AJ...

We were so happy to be under the hundreds of beautiful Pine and redwood trees surrounding this enchanted forest retreat. Listening to the creek running by lulled us to sleep each night. The rooms are gorgeous as well as the entire home. The beds and bedding are of the highest quality and feels like sleeping on a cloud. Breakfast was...

overall we had a good experience but felt misled by claims on their website. They are on 4 acres, not 20. There are 2 redwood trees only in their 4 acres of forest. Their 4 acres are not really hikable as they are on a dangerous perch for exploring (and driving for that matter.). They sent us to the Armstrong...

Dear Guests: A person's right to their own opinion notwithstanding, it is concerning that folks may write things without regard for what is verifiably true. We are very sorry this guest was not thrilled with her stay at Avalon, but the problem, I suspect, stems from our having requested they quiet down in the hot tub at 11:00 pm, and...

I was a little conflicted about writing a review, because I'd prefer if less people knew Avalon existed so we could keep going undisturbed. However, after just returning from what we can only define as a wonderful first anniversary trip to Sonoma County, in no small part due to our stay at the Avalon's Magician's Suite, I owe it to...

The Owners, Hillary & Gary, were perfect hosts. We felt at home right away, even after a hectic drive there from San Francisco. There assistant, Jerome, (also an excellent host and cook) handed us glasses of wine and we sampled their culinary expertise not 5 minutes after we arrived. The breakfasts were excellent. We stayed in the Enchanted Forest room,...

Fantastic!!! Surrounded by the vineyards of Sonoma County, Avalon is a hidden treasure in a woodsy setting, with a King Arthur theme in every room. We were spoiled with the best breakfasts I have ever had, first-class and personable hospitality, and an enormous private hot tub. The owners have paid superb attention to detail. I was extremely reluctant to leave....
