We had a room in the old-style main house which was lovely and quaint. The room was tastefully appointed. Gorgeous home-cooked breakfasts, fresh baked cookies and friendly informative tastings.
Glen ellen is such a lovely nook in Sonoma - the trees, quiet and scenery were simply divine - very relaxing.
Service was outstanding. The warm welcome, efficient and friendly service was good. What set them apart was the extra mile. For example, when we went there, I fell in love with the coconut macaroons. I asked one of the staff about them and she said they were made on-site and that the chef was in. She came back in 5 minutes and asked if I wanted to meet the chef and that they would be happy to share their proprietary recipe. The chef ran me through how she made them and helped me write down a pared down quantity version of the recipe.
I certainly plan on going back!
