Why Pat Summers chose Sonoma

With wineries, farms, restaurants, arts and cultural activities, food and wine events, spas, sporting events, Sonoma Valley is one of the most desirable destinations in the world.

Inn Wine Country offers guests the opportunity to explore the community up close and within walking distance of Sonoma Plaza. It offers a peaceful and private setting in its unique location. Summers House, The Summers' Country home, offers wonderful views starting with a drive through the vineyards to the house where expansive vistas reach to the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco;s skyline. The house provides a truly tranquil setting to enjoy the company of friends and family.

What makes this house unique

Inn Wine Country is one of few vacations rentals within walking distance of the eight acre Sonoma Plaza park and surrounding restaurants, tasting rooms, shops and galleries, as well as events, the farmers market, historic sites, the petanque court at Depot Park, the bike path and Sonoma Overlook Trail. Fresh from the farm seasonal produce and gourmet products are available at local markets and the seasonal farmers market on Tuesday evenings and Friday mornings.

Even though Inn Wine Country is so close to the plaza, it is situated in its own private oasis across the creek from traffic and activity.

Fantastic property, fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this property! A group of 5 ladies stayed and used this as our home base for exploring Sonoma and Napa. It was a great location within walking distance to so many restaurants, tasting rooms, trails, etc. It was also a great home based to have when traveling all over wine country - Calistoga, Napa and Sonoma. Bedrooms, bathrooms and decor were great. Nice welcome gift of wine and treats! Would definitely stay here again (and talking about a return trip for next year)!

Light & bright home close to the square

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Pat's house in sonoma. The house was very clean and bright and open. Our 3 year old daughter loved the pool and it was the perfect size for us. The location was ideal; just a 10 minute leisurely walk to the square and close to a lot of wineries. We ate in one night and had all of the utensils and plates that we needed at the house. Pat was super responsive and accessible. Thanks for a great and relaxing weekend!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to host your wonderful family. A large percentage of our guests come to visit from around the country and the world. It is a pleasure to also host guests from the San Francisco Bay Area - some of whom have made Inn Wine Country their second home. We look forward to seeing you in the future!

Amazing home near the Square!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I had such an amazing time and we especially enjoyed the short walk to Sonoma Plaza! It was a great spot to enjoy wineries in both Napa and Sonoma. The home was very comfortable for up to 8 people and it was very easy to coordinate our arrival and departure with Pat, the owner. We truly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be recommending this rental to friends and family.

Wonderful, clean house near the Square

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this rental home for 5 days with 4 couples. The pictures on this post do not do the home justice - it is so much nicer in person! I was a little nervous as there were no pictures of the bathrooms or Kitchen on the listing, but to our pleasant surprise all were clean, remodeled, and spacious. The bedrooms were nice and enough space for us; the beds/linens were like a luxury hotel! The living area was a perfect size, comfortable, and comfortable for 8ppl for breakfast. The house also had paper towels, dish soap, garbage bags, hand soap etc. for kitchen needs, which was a very nice touch. It is also appointed with washer and dryer, for longer stays. The pool is small, but great for a dip (though we didn't use it) and there is outdoor space. WIFI & Cable TV. This house is a short (10-15 minute) walk from Sonoma Square, which is filled with lovely restaurants and wine tasting rooms. It is also a brief car ride to many, many wineries. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Recommendations: New/More Towels; Binder at house with things to do, restaurants, wineries, etc.

Owner's Response: I am glad you had a great stay and enjoyed the house! New towels on their way. We replentish several times a year. They get a lot of use. We also have great fluffy pool towels. We have opted to send tip sheets in advance rather than doing the traditional binder. They get dated quickly and dog eared. Most everyone can log on to get current menus and winery information. Printed materials change too often! A real plus is that I am always available to assist with restaurant and winery recommendations and to answer any questions our guest may have. Our vacation rental business is a true pleasure to operate. It keeps me busy and informed.

Perfect base to enjoy all Sonoma has to offer

  • 5 of 5

The perfect place to explore all that Sonoma has to offer. Situated just off the main road into Sonoma, offering a peaceful retreat and yet only 5 minutes walk to the shops, restaurants and wine tasting rooms around Sonoma square. The house is fully equipped with all you would need and is bright, clean and welcoming. The pool was well used in the evenings after a day out wine tasting and was the perfect place to unwind. There were 5 adults staying there and there was more than enough room and we never felt crowded. I would highly recommend this place and Pat, the owner was very welcoming and was only a phone call away if we needed anything, though we did not have any reason to call, except to thank her for a wonderful stay.

Family Celebration

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house tucked back in a nice quiet area of downtown Sonoma. We loved that we could walk and enjoy the Plaza and all the shops. Evening sitting in pool and relaxing after a long day tasting at nearby wineries. Full equipped kitchen and bbq were a plus when we just wanted to be at home. Thanks Pat, it was a wonderful stay. We will be back again soon.
