The B&B owner and staff were delightful and very helpful. The location is beautiful, right on the edge of a vineyard and in a quiet spot away from other hotels and tourist sites, yet only a 10-15 drive from popular towns, restaurants, and wineries. Enjoyed my leisurely stay very much!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Auberge on the Vinyard"
The room was in a renovated 1910 victorian family farmhouse with period furnishings. The breakfasts were outstanding, setting was very nice, and the owner was very friendly and fun to talk with about the local area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

we had such a nice time at auberge on the vineyard! Neither of the owners were around during our stay but Jocelyn and the staff took excellent care of us and really made us feel "at home." It was a great home base from which to explore wine country. we stayed in the hermitage room, on the second floor of the main house and woke up both mornings to the amazing smell of the three courses breakfasts that they stuffed us with each day we were there! they asked about food allergies when we booked so I had plenty of time to warn them of my partner's nut allergy, which meant is was very nice to not have to worry about discussing it when we were there. Very pretty room, with a lovely bathroom and romantic feel. it was just the getaway we needed. we also sincerely appreciated our welcome envelope with a wine tasting pass and recommendations from the owners on where to eat, drink, and explore in the area. We also very much enjoyed kicking back on the front porch and enjoying the company of Bellhop the cat when we returned from our adventures in the evenings.
"Simply VERY Pleasant"

Picked up a voucher for a two night stay and this turned into a GREAT visit. There are two buildings, and I believe we were better off in the main house, as we were the first be treated to the morning aroma of fresh coffee, and breakfast foods being prepared for all the guests. The wine tasting pass IS a huge bonus, making our trip much more affordable and very enjoyable. . Many local wineries included with excellent wines. And, more importantly Jocelyn made special arrangements for us to get a private visit to a wonderful little winery on the top of the mountain. Breakfast is special. We will return.
"Return to Paradise"

My husband and I are on a mission to experience the full range of beauty and rustic charm of Auberge on the Vineyard! In my previous review, I spoke from the perspective of a first-time visitor to Auberge in Cloverdale, CA, and described the place, the experience, the amazing 3-course French Breakfast. This time I'd like to focus on how lovely the place is seasonally. We brought my mother and her best friend for a short getaway on the 3rd day of Spring. The Victorian charm of the Hermitage Room served was accented by the serene view of the budding trees. My Mom & her friend stayed in Vouvray Room in the Carriage House, with chic modern French appointings--big, soft, plush bed, lovely fireplace, and a fun, modern sink in the private toilet/shower area. The vineyard view from Vouvray rivals the view from the downstairs suite--Montrachet, as it has the literal upper hand of being upstairs. Not often commented on but much enjoyed is the sitting area in the Carriage House, with its own Butler's Station (coffee, tea, cold drinks, and snacks available!). With its comfortable, large sofas and big flat-screen television, it is a cozy, modern escape for a romantic pair or a group of friends. Take advantage of the sprawling upper deck with a glass of wine at sunset as the perfect appetizer just before supping in town. I recommend experiencing the seasons at Auberge; one visit is simply not enough! I might not have written about our Winter stay at Auberge in the Montrachet Suite--but we'll be back again in late Spring, and I'll rave about it then. For now, I'll say that it feeds all creature comforts--softest, plushest king-sized bed, a huge inviting claw-foot jacuzzi, expansive vineyard view, smart kitchenette, fireplace, relaxing sitting area...the list doesn't do it justice. Modern vineyard-vintage inspired interior decor with a hint of the secluded, seductive come-hither! You have to experience it yourself, and then you won't want to leave.

Lovely room with sweeping views of the vineyard out the large sliding door of our room. Had a nice lunch at a Vietnamese restart in town recommended by our host at the Auberge. Exceptional multi course french breakfast served at 9am on the main floor of the inn.
"Hidden gem with 5 star food!"

My mother and I stayed at the Auberge for a girl's getaway weekend. The inn was absolutely beautiful, the room was comfortable and tastefully decorated and the breakfast each morning was that of a 5-star french cafe. Cloverdale is much more low key then other parts of Sonoma/Napa and the Inn offered great suggestions for vineyards and restaurants near by. We will be back!

We had to cancel our booking the day after we made it. Roxanne very kindly waived the cancellation fee. I can't comment on the B&B from actual experience but it sounds delightful & we are very sorry that we shan't be able to visit as planned.

Our daughter gave us this weekend as a Christmas gift, and we couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. Quiet, wonderful 3-course breakfast each morning with friendly servers, French-themed rooms, close to Cloverdale and nearby towns and restaurants. Just a great getaway!!

My girlfriend and I spent the weekend (off-season, on a 2-for-1 night deal) at Auberge. I had to revise my reservations a few times via email. Roxanne, the inn-keeper, was amenable and helpful. (She said she’d honor the deal for a much-longer period than I’d imagined.) We didn’t ask, but when we arrived Roxanne had moved us into a larger, more expensive room because the vineyards were all dead and there weren’t many guests or many people around at all. The room was clean, spacious and charming in a way different than an antique maison. (Beautiful armoire, a comfortable and lush bed, a painting you’d buy at a Hobby Lobby of a shadowy figure, a humorous note about the septic tank above the toilet.) Auberge—Roxanne, the decor, her decadent and large-volume breakfasts, her recommendation for a visceral, high-altitude, generous, and realist vineyard (“wine is a form of food processing” said the owner, a funny, sharp man with a heavy-hand”)—is not trying to be something it’s not, though the name might suggest otherwise. Roxanne was earnest, generous and a great cook. The breakfasts immense, 3-course meals that were prepared with a high level of attention to detail. Someone wrote on another review that Roxanne harassed another guest for being late and then took jabs at a guest for not eating an item on the menu. To this I say, Roxanne has a midwestern energy to her, a certain delicate-yet-uncensored humor to her comments. All I can say is that she was sweet to my girlfriend and I—we showed up about 5 minutes late, had taken, late-night, large servings of the community eggnog cake in the main house’s purportedly- haunted-lobby—as well as to the Korean couple who showed up 30 minutes late for breakfast and who spoke little English. (I say “late” because, with the key, I received a simple note explaining that breakfast begins at 9 AM “sharp”.) Roxanne was also sweet with a retired couple who were interesting enough that Roxanne wanted to come listen to their conversation—as Roxanne noted as she strided out of the kitchen. I liked Roxanne. I can’t stand “outgoing,” facile proprietors of confined places (for this reason I’m inherently reluctant to go to places other than chain hotels); Roxanne comes off a bit like this on the reviews, but she’s not. I liked the non-commercial location of this old house, half a mile from the Russian river. I liked the smell of the dead vineyards and the sight of my girlfriend jogging through the brown rows till she became a shivery blur. I liked the fir tree that brushed at the main room’s windows and the fat “stray” cat that was eating cat food from a dish on the porch. I liked Roxanne’s artichoke strata and her shirt with a print of the Eiffel Tower and text that read, “Paris.” It was a comfortable, relaxed stay. My girlfriend and I hope to bring our friends here for a weekend sometime in the future.

Loved everything about Auberge on the Vineyard! Easy to find...We stayed at the Carriage House which has 3 rooms with a living room area. Our room had a great balcony overlooking the vineyards.... wonderful décor...(not rosy) and size of room was perfect...sunset was amazing! The Inn keeper Roxanne made our stay extra special. The 3 course breakfast was yummy along with her great conversation. We visited in January and I bet visiting when the vineyards are green must be... breath taking... We also went to the recommended wineries and enjoyed each one. THANK YOU for 2 great days away from the day-to-day.
"Beautiful, peaceful setting overlooking the vineyard"

We both loved our stay at the Auberge with Roxanne as a wonderful hostess & chef. The room was extremely comfortable & quiet...nice large bathroom & shower in the Hermitage Room. When we arrived late p.m., we were greeted with a delicious rum/eggnog cake & recommendations on where to go for dinner in Cloverdale. Breakfast the next two mornings were delicious & very gourmet. Roxanne had good suggestions on favorite wineries..we particularly enjoyed SkyPine/BobDog at the top of the hill...an absolute must to visit! We will return to Auberge!
