Great Family Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We rented all 7 bedrooms for our family reunion. The place was plenty big. Kids loved the trampoline, badminton court, horseshoes, hot tub and big grass area for soccer and football games. Fire pit was a bonus! Wineries were nice and close. Id recommend this house and will look to stay there again. Gary was great to work with and accommodated our needs.

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 13 loved the house, its size and roominess. The layout worked well for our large extended family and all were comfortable. The grounds were great with Bad mitten, Trampoline, hot tub, including fantastic views in a beautiful setting. We hired one of the private chefs and he was familiar with the house and made a very special meal for us all. Proximity to everything you need is only a 10 min drive. We couldn't have been happier than with our choice of the Suisun Valley Inn.

Our Kids loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful Christmas holiday in Suisun Valley Inn. Thank Gary for a giant Christmas tree and beautiful ornaments in grand room, our Kids could not wait to get their presents from Santa, feel just like home! They love big trampoline in the back yard, and spent hours jumping! The badminton/volleyball court is neat, boys and girls play badminton even after dark. There are plenty space around the Inn to let kids play, and big kitchen and dinning table for adults to hangout. It's an awesome place for family reunion with kids.

A wonderful getaway for a large group

  • 5 of 5

The Inn was well equipped, spotlessly clean and spacious. We had 5 couples in our group and there are not very many places available where you can accommodate each couple with a queen bed and private bathrooms. The inn was perfect for us. Plenty of shared space to hang out, eat and dance. Gary was terrifically accommodating without being in our space at all. He responded to any concerns (which were minimal) we had immediately. Would definitely stay here again!!

A "Dream House"

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot express how gorgeous and spacious this house is - we called it our "mansion"! There were 7 adults & 1 child staying here but several others visiting and it never felt crowded. The large backyard provides everything you need for a fun outing - there's a huge trampoline, several picnic tables, a hammock, tether ball, volleyball/badminton net, fire pit, and just space to run around. The owner, Gary, was so very informative and gracious! We loved every minute and I'm already trying to think of another reason to rent it again!!!

Great place to have a nice get together.

  • 5 of 5

I spent two nights at Suisun Valley Inn, Fairfield. Perfect place to spend a long weeks end with friends or family. Very friendly host, the property is in a nice location and it is really spacious and comfortable. All our kids loved staying there, as they got do a lot of out door activities. We will definitely go again.

About Gary Bacon

Gary built one of the most successful corporate housing companies on the East Coast which was sold to Equity Residential in 2001. He retired a year later and began the first of many expeditions to six continents. Ying was a national tour director in China where the two met in 2002. Gary and Ying were married in 2008 and settled in Fairfield, California where they operate summer camps for Chinese youth through the American Chinese Cultural Exchange Service.

Gary Bacon purchased this estate in 2016

Why Gary Bacon chose Fairfield

The inn was built in 2004 as the principal residence at Monroe Ranch which had been in the owner's family since 1860. A lifelong devotee of George Washington, the residence resembles Mt. Vernon, Washington's estate in Virginia. The home had been used for weekend retreats by the family whose principal residence was south of San Francisco. With eight bedrooms and seven baths, the home was easily convertible into an inn.

What makes this estate unique

The property has a unique history including the fact that it was once the site of 'Big Camp' a 1000-strong Chinese settlement along the banks of Suisun Creek where railroad-weary workers lived and farmed the land for area ranchers. The property is surrounded by vineyards and farmland. Fifty-eight magnolia trees and a single remaining 100-year old pear tree line the quarter-mile entryway to the inn. Over forty variety of birds enjoy fruit from our trees during the day and at night scores of constellations are easily identified.
