This page is to provide information regarding everything except the wedding.  We've put together a handful of times for everyone to come together and lists of fun things to do nearby on your own.  



Soto (Main) House

516 Donald St, 
Sonoma, CA 95476

Westerman House

511 Baines Ave.

Wright House

All houses have been booked 4.1.21 - 4.8.21. The houses are not available for check-in until after 4pm, so please plan accordingly.  You will be able to let yourself into the property via lockbox, the code to which will be provided on 4.1.21.  

We've planned to provide items for dinner and groceries for the next day's breakfast, so there is no need to get supplies before or the day you arrive.  All houses are set up as vacation rentals and are well-equipped.  One thing to note, the houses do not have TVs in every room (usually just in living room and master bedroom), so bring your devices.

Things to do

Things to do


The main house has a large yard, with (unheated) pool, hot tub, fire place, lots of lounge areas.  


There's a ridiculous amount of places to take walks or go on a hike nearby.  The coast and beaches are about 1 hr drive away too.


Sonoma Plaza is the center of Sonoma with lots of places to shop (or window shop). There are tons of antique shops nearby. 

Wine & Such

Loads of wineries, breweries, and distilleries to visit. As well as, plenty of shops/farms making speciality foods.

Where to eat

Where to eat

Some of the places we've tried, and liked, are:

  • El Molino (best Mexican food in town)

  • Baker & Cook

  • Sonoma's Best

  • HopMonk Taverns

  • Cochon Volant

  • Tony's Seafood Restaurant go-to for Oysters (saw, grilled, smoked) in Tomales Bay about 1hr away

  • more to come

Indoor dining will be VERY limited, if available at all.  Many restaurants have outdoor dining options, or are take-out only. 


As people have questions or as we think of other things to add, we'll update this area.
