Walt is the former Dir. of Strybing Arboretum & Botanical Gardens in Golden Gate Park, (now San Francisco Botanical Gardens) San Francisco, CA. Ginger is a ceramicist/artist and the primary designer of the rental properties. Both are plant collectors extraordinaire.

Purchased in 2000, with no master plan, the garden and the structures have evolved over an 11 year odyssey from scraggly scrub to a lush landscape with beautifully appointed accommodations. Fenced for protection from the deer in 2004, the Valens have planted more than 6,000 bulbs: daffodils/narcissus, iris, and lilies. Wild flower seeds are on the way to becoming established. Rhododendrons, a “yellow” garden, the “star” garden, an extensive vegetable garden, the succulent garden, the redwood grove and a cutting garden delight the eye and senses. The Pavilions, set in a 'primitive' garden of palms, and cycads, nestle up to the massive green lawn lend themselves to lounging and enjoying a glass of wine with friends.

A garden sculpture collection and an onsite garden shop are available for your walking pleasure. Tours for non-residents are available by appointment for a small fee.

COME ASIDE AND REST AWHILE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had the good fortune to stumble upon this place a few years ago when visiting the Anderson Valley area for an overnight stay. Having never been to Boonville, I had no idea what to expect. I envisioned every establishment to be a place in the boonies with an outhouse out back. Well! To our surprise, we were amazed to learn there was such a wonderful haven with access to a wonderful 5-acre garden to wander through, wineries close by for wine tasting, and the best hosts you could ever ask for. The room we stayed in was very cozy and attractively decorated with all the modern conveniences, except a TV. Walt and Ginger made us feel like family from the very start. You will love this place, and the warm hospitality, and remember it forever, as we have.

FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5
Not much to add that hasn't already been said in the other reviews. The place was clean, charming, casual and relaxing. We stayed in the suite, it was much more spacious than we thought it was going to be. We were greeted with a bottle of wine and some cheese. Walt and Ginger were fantastic hosts and chatted with us on their deck for a couple hours while drinking wine. You can tell how much effort goes in to keeping the grounds so incredibly maintained. Perfect for a nice, relaxing getaway! We will be back at some point!

PEACEFUL CHARMER

  • 5 of 5
This was charming and beautiful. The owners can help you tune in to opportunities in the area. I cant imagine a nicer location for a getaway in the Anderson valley. Take their restaurant recommendations not only on where to dine, but where to avoid. The gardens are beautiful and the compound is very private. One of my favs!

RESTFUL ROMANTIC REWARDING

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had the most wonderful stay in the lovely Suite at Stoney Bottom. Very spacious, beautifully decorated and a luxurious bed! Fabulous gardens to wonder endlessly filled with whimsical art and every plant imaginable. Walt and Ginger were exceptional hosts, offering you all the privacy you would want as well as sharing delightful conversation from the deck overlooking the gardens. We highly recommend a stay during any visit to the Anderson Valley wineries.

BEAUTIFUL GARDENS!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the cottage on a road trip from Portland Oregon. The Stoney Bottom Garden was everything we had heard about and more!! The grounds have some of the most diverse and beautiful gardens we have ever seen. Not to mention the bird watching and the hosts of the rental that were equally wonderful. We were sad to leave the place but know that we will be back soon. Booneville is a great place to relax for the weekend and Stoney Bottom is the place to do it. Another great thing in the town is the Anderson Valley Brewery that is close to the property.

RELAXING GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We're just back from two nights at Stony Bottom Gardens' guest cottage. This was our second stay there and it was a great getaway from the Bay Area. The gardens are gorgeous and Ginger & Walt are friendly hosts. The cottage has everything you need in the kitchen, a comfortable bed, and two patios to take advantage of sitting in either sun or shade. We love Boonville and the Anderson Valley, and Stony Bottom has become a favorite part of our visits.

The Anderson valley is know for it's wonderful wines, olive oil, and Boonville Beers. The valley is home to fabulous artists and many galleries. Or if the outdoors is where your passion lies try bird watching, creek walking, and my favorite, midnight star gazing.
