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 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"
01/09/14 BreezinDelta Delta, CA
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!
"A wonderful stay"
12/27/13 GDW586 Detroit, Michigan
My companion and I stayed at Auberge on the Vineyard in early October. We love the homey elegance of our room and spending late afternoons and evenings on the wraparound porch overlooking the vineyards with our wine and cigars. We loved Roxanne's outstanding three-course home cooked breakfasts and we enjoyed sharing breakfast with the other guests at the large communal table the the dining room. It's a great way to find out what to do, see, and expect in northern Wine Country. The wine pass for free wine tastings was a huge bonus, and be sure to check out Bob Dog Wines down the road. Roxanne always makes a late morning reservation for her guests, and it was our favorite tour and tasting by far.
"Perfect weekend getaway."
12/15/13 freebird99 Brooklyn, NY
This is a long overdue review for a wonderful long solo weekend spent in Sonoma and exploring the North Coast. I decided last minute to leave NY and getaway to the west coast. I highly recommend staying at Auberge on the Vineyard. I stayed in the Echezeaux room, which was very spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. Waking up each morning to views of the vineyard didn't hurt either ;-). Starting out each morning having breakfast with some of the other guests exchanging notes about what to do and sharing stories was great. Roxanne is a really warm and wonderful host. The food was sooo delicious, thoughtfully prepared and beautifully presented. Heck how many people can say they've had a 3 course breakfast! Go and enjoy.
"Awesome B&B, great breakfast"
12/08/13 Volt9365 DC
My wife and I stayed here during a wine country trip in October 2013. The B&B has fantastic views of surrounding vineyards and I ran throughout the vineyards for early morning workouts. The rooms were well-appointed and in good shape. It was unfortunate the suite was booked because the pictures look amazing. There are two buildings, a main house and a separate structure with a few rooms. We stayed on the 2nd floor of the separate structure which had a patio overlooking the vineyards. The lighting from the sunsets and sunrises were awesome against the vines. I wasn't a huge fan of the bed, but to each their own... my wife had no issue. The breakfast was fantastic and the owner was very entertaining. I've never had a desert with breakfast! 3 course breakfast and we even had a mimosa for another couple's anniversary. I read other reviews about the owner and quite frankly, it appears some people are just looking to complain. I don't think any business owner in the service industry would purposely offend their customers. Some people are just impossible to please. The owner shares her opinions, but that's why my wife and I frequently stay at B&Bs. If you don't want quaintness and interaction with the host/hostess, go to a regular hotel and get your keycard at the front desk.
"Best Thanksgiving Ever! Roxanne rocks! This place is wonderful!"
12/08/13 SDBeach01 San Diego, California
Roxanne made our Thanksgiving stay absolutely memorable. I am gluten-free by necessity (Celiac's Disease) and my husband has a berry allergy and she juggled all of this at breakfast (including two guests who did not eat meat) with finesse and style. How many B&B owners actually keep gluten-free flour to make crepes for their gluten-free guests? Our room was peaceful and gorgeous, I got great sleep and the view out the bathroom window (a vineyard) was something you only get in places three times this price. I enjoyed a peaceful soak in the vintage claw foot tub admiring that view. The food is fabulous, the setting serene, and breakfast is an event, with lively, intelligent conversation around the Victorian dining table while you are served a gourmet, multi-course breakfast. Great value and a fabulous experience only 20 minutes from Healdsburg square in Sonoma County. We'll be back.
"Didn't know the "rules""
12/06/13 JeffNettie Los Angeles, California
My husband & I wanted to stay somewhere nice, while visiting family in Cloverdale, for Thanksgiving. When we arrived the house was empty but we found our key & made ourselves at home. We were very disappointed by the attitude of the innkeeper, she was very irritated when we were late for breakfast, there was no instructions as to if you are late etc. During breakfast she was very rude to another guest who couldn't eat what was served & we felt very berated during the meals while we were told about others who had broken the "rules" in the past. The next day we skipped breakfast rather than be subjected to more & thus breaking another rule by not telling anyone ahead of time. Didn't know we had to & didn't know who to tell. Honestly we will never come back & doubt we will ever go to another B & B. Although the Vineyard view was beautiful & the house very nice, & kitchen staff was very accommodating but the owner was rude.
