My husband and I just returned from a 2 night stay here and we were very pleased. The Inn at Occidental is a cute B&B tucked away in a small corner of Sonoma county. The bed was very comfortable and with all the rain we experienced, the large soaking tub and fireplace were a sight for sore eyes. The town itself is very tiny, but not lacking in charm. There are only a handful of restaurants within walking distance, but if you tried a different one every night you can't go wrong with any of them. The lobby has a book of menus from all the local restaurants which is a great help in deciding which restaurant to try.
The breakfast is great...the other reviewers are correct in mentioning how great the home made granola is! The hot accompaniment doesn't disappoint, either. The evening wine and cheese reception was very nice. It gives you a chance to meet the innkeepers and taste some local wines.
My only reason for not giving the Inn a full 5 star rating is because of a faint pet smell. There is a small dog on the property and some cats that hang around outside. The animal smell in the office was pretty strong and when the rain came, the dampness brought out some odor in on the decorative pillows in our room. This doesn't bother some people if you're an extreme animal lover, but as for us, we like pets to remain outside.
