Hope-Merrill House Wine Country Inn
What our Guests have to say about their stay at our inn

"My husband and I first came here 7 years ago when we were just dating and this past weekend we came back to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary! Everything is exactly as we remember it which is exactly what we hopped for. The house is nearly 150 year old and Ron & Cosette have done an amazing job and resorting it and even keeping some elements of the original home. I can't say enough about the amazing home cooked breakfasts. Not only is the spread lovely but the food is beyond delicious. While my husband is a meat eater I'm vegan and there was plenty for each of us. Cosette's cooking is worth the trip alone. She did such an amazing job at making sure I had enough to eat and ensuring it was vegan. Day 1 I had French toast with strawberry jam, coffee cake, berries, and roasted potatoes. Day 2 was veggie fajitas w/vegan feta and the best ancient grain tortillas, coffee cake, fresh fruit, and roasted potatoes. You can't beat this hospitality either. We were given great recommendations for wine tasting and dinner. I could go on and on about how much I love this place, but it doesn't do it justice. You MUST experience it yourself!"

"Such an amazing adventure staying in the famous Hope-Merrill B & B......last night I pretended I was still in the room with the fireplace on low embers. Every part of the experience was just wonderful....we did not get a chance to tell you that Cotelli made up a salt free dinner for me of braised chicken, spinach, mushroom and cauliflower that was terrific, but your breakfast is one of the finest in taste, texture and appearance that we have ever experienced...Cosette, you are a gifted chef. And the knowledge that you two possess about wine and the area is formidable!"

"Cosette & Ron,
My friend and I both enjoyed our stay with you very much. You are both great hosts and have a lovely house. After our visit, we both said we would enjoy coming by again during another trip.
                    Sincerely," Jan

"Dear Cosette & Ron:
Thanks you so much for including me in the H-M Bottling Bonanza! A fabulous time! All the best."

"Thank you so much for the hospitality, breakfast, and wine.  We will be back soon and be sure to recommend (you) to others. Thanks again."

"Hi Cosette and Ron,
Thanks again for your generous gift (of the free night's stay for Veterans Day). I can not tell you how much it meant to me. The Inn is great and the room was beautiful and well appointed. The wine tasting was a great addition and breakfast was delish. You were the perfect host and hostess in a wonderful setting. It was a good group of people with a common tread that was the Military. Your expression of appreciation was well received.
Thanks again and we will be back!!!"
                   Ray and Jan, Citrus Heights, CA

"Cosette and Ron,
Gene and I would like to tell you what a wonderful experience the "Pick and Press" was.  The Wine Country was charming and the food wonderful.  You both, Graham, and the guest vintners, both in September and in May were very attentive and informative.  Of course the wine was delicious.  We will surely recommend the experiences to any friends heading your way.  It was an adventure we will long remember."

My husband and I stayed at your Bed and Breakfast over the Winter Wineland weekend. It was our first stay at a bed and Breakfast. We had always wanted to do so but just never got around to it.  I just wanted to say that we loved our visit with you. It was a memorable first experience. We will definitely recommend you as well as come back. Thank You Very Much!"
                    Debi, San Jose, CA

"Hello Cosette and Ron,
I want to thank you for the wonderful stay last weekend. It was fun to get to know about your B&B. Lots of folks from the area who were attending Grape Day asked about our stay and we recommended it highly. The breakfasts were outstanding. Look forward to visiting again."
                    Mike, Logan, UT

"Thank you very much for making the arrangements for our getaway.  Everything was delightful and we made new friends at several wineries.  Cosette was very gracious and hospitable at the Hope-Merrill House.  It was delightful speaking with her about the history of the house and area.  Mark was a wonderful guide on our wine tour.  He helped us and we enjoyed our time with him.  The flights were great and what a nice way to get to Sonoma.  We have told our friends about the trip and several have shown an interest in taking a trip to Sonoma in the future.  Thanks again for everything."
                    Marty & Geo, Novato, CA

Thank you, we had a wonderful stay in your inn…….. The accommodations we perfect, the food and hospitality were outstanding and both you and Ron's’ knowledge of wines and local vineyards you shared with everyone was great and made the trips to the wineries delightful…………….. We will stay with you again on a return trip……….."

Neil & Julie, Moorepark, CA
"Dear Cosette,
Thank you for a delightful time and for looking out for everyone's welfare in a very personal way.  Not only were the accommodations enjoyable, but I knew from the get-go that someone who knew the area was at the helm and would guide my way.  Thank you.  Happy harvest in all senses of the phrase.  Yours sincerely,"
                    Lise, Taos, NM

"Dear Cosette and Ron,
Oh yes, we had a wonderful time in your inn...Both of you are fantastic hosts. Not only we enjoyed so much your hospitality (oh oh oh, the breakfast was something !) but also, thanks to your passion about wine and authentic food, (and life, I guess, in general !) , we re-discovered this magnificent place in Sonoma...Dry Creek, Alexander Valley...We can't wait to come back and stay with you at Hope Merrill House. In the meantime, you will probably have the chance to meet with several of our friends, many of them from Europe, as we spoke a lot about your Inn.  Enjoy the Harvest season"!
                    Isabelle and Eric, Los Altos, CA,

"Well, we really enjoyed our stay & learned a lot. Despite the number of Indiananslawyers it was a stimulating group of guests. The Preston evening was super and we have been promoting the area to our friends. Give the little orange cat a nougie for us.  See you again & I'll let you know when I publish the Geyserville visit on YouTube! Sorry we missed the Grand Opening of the Post Office!!!"
                    Bruce, Toronto, ON, Canada

"Love, love, LOVE your guest houses.  We can't wait to stay with you again!  We have a $100 gift certificate from bedandbreakfast.com (I think that's it - I'll check) and I believe you're listed as one of the participating B&Bs.  I'll have the exact information when we check in with you. Thanks!"
