Delightful Winter Excursion

5 sur février 04, 2016

Our trip was scheduled to Sonora to visit with family after a recent tragedy. Mr. and Mrs. Buess, the owners of Knowles Hill, treated us to hospitality that was unparalleled in our previous stays at other B&Bs. The breakfasts were truly scrumptious. The 1920s era home is masterfully decorated and lovingly detailed. We stayed in the Charles H. Segerstrom Room with the adjoining "Boys Room" for our daughter. The inn is located conveniently within walking distance, up and down the hill, from old Sonora. It was also an easy and gorgeous drive to Columbia State Park, which we visited twice; Yosemite; Big Trees State Park; even Stockton is only about a 45-minute drive down the hill. We were treated as family. The next time we are in northern California, we will not stay anywhere else.

Beautiful B&B

If only every bed & breakfast could be as fantastic as The Inn on Knowles Hill. The room was delightful and very comfortable. The breakfast prepared by Rhonda each morning was a gourmet delight. My daughter and I stayed as part of a group that took over the Inn. It was such fun and was like staying with friends at their home. Thank you Rhonda and Fred.

Beyond Amazing!

5 sur avril 18, 2014

My husband surprised me for our anniversary by reserving us a room here. We live about a mile away, but getting away has always been difficult for us-so he made a great choice in staying local! Everything about the Inn was perfect! The room was large and extremely clean, the bed was so comfortable (and the special detergent smelled so good-you'll want to know what she uses)! Rhonda is one of the nicest people you will ever meet-and the BEST cook! Our breakfast was out of this world-my husband and I couldn't stop talking about it! We will be back, but in the meantime, we'll spread the word about how amazing The Inn on Knowles Hill is!

We Love This Inn

5 sur novembre 21, 2013

The innkeepers at Knowles Hill really know how to spoil their guests. We would come back just for the scrumptuous gourmet breakfasts made with fresh ingredients. We particularly enjoyed the stuffed poached pear, and loved having eggs straight from the property's chicken coop. There's much to appreciate about this Inn. We stayed two nights in the exquisitely decorated Earl Warren Room, and were impressed with the amazing attention to detail, comfortable mattress on a beautiful antique carved bed, and spectacular hilltop views overlooking the town of Sonora. Not to mention the gracious owners! The location is perfect for exploring, shopping and winetasting throughout the southern end of the Gold Country. The charming town of Murphys is a short drive, and the Calveros Big Trees State Park is not much farther. We've stayed in many B&Bs over the years, and the Knowles Inn has quickly become one of our favorites.

Beyond Expectations!

After a long flight from the East Coast and then a long drive to Sonora, my wife, family, and I were absolutely amazed from the moment we passed through the gates of the Inn. The grandeur of the estate, the view from the summit, the delightful garden scents and sounds of the animals were enchanting. And then we were embraced by Rhonda's loving attention, caring, and charm. The Inn and our room were extremely comfortable. We enjoyed every inch of this historic inn, complete with generations of family antiques and history. The morning breakfasts were truly gourmet and we laughed because none of us had ever taken pictures of our morning meals! As a professional photographer with a Studio that has won national and international awards in wedding photography, I was very impressed with The Buess's plans to expand the grounds of the Inn to include an area for outdoor wedding ceremonies and receptions. Their artistic vision, attention to details, and ability to "take care of us" will certainly make the Inn a destination point for many celebrations. So, we would highly recommend that you take advantage of this Gem in Sonora, but we also hope that there will always be a room available for us! John and Marge Gardner and Family

Everything about this place is fabulous! The beds, food, flowers, and view. Don't stay anywhere else. It is totally worth it.

Enjoyed it!

5 sur mai 02, 2013

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Inn and truly enjoyed it. We stayed in the room with a king size bed which was very comfortable. Rhonda was a very gracious host and we enjoyed talking to her. The view from the top of the hill was wonderful and the Inn itself is truly a landmark. The first mornings breakfast was delicious. Rhonda served a poached pear, unbelievable. The main course was a vegetarian omelet. To be honest, I wasn't thrilled about a vegetarian omelet. I am more of a meat and potatoes guy, but for a vegetarian omelet it was good. We were really hoping for the eggs Benedict, we read some good things about it. The second days breakfast was amazing. We had some yogurt, fresh fruit and granola, but the main course was the Danish pancakes. One of the best breakfasts I had ever had and this was our 18th bed and breakfast stay. Highly recommend The Inn at Knowles Hill.

A Place for the Whole Family

This was a wonderful place to bring the whole family, icluding my six month old. The Inn keeper was very accomadating and made our stay magical. The kids claim they'd rather come here then recieve presents for their birthday or Christmas.

Lovely B&B

4,6 sur avril 27, 2013

The Inn is lovely and Rhonda and Fred are wonderful hosts. We were quite comfortable and loved the location. Dinner is a short walk into town and back. Gourmet breakfasts were always delicious and well presented. The history of the house and its relationship to Sonora is deep and rich. My husband has a life long interest in anything railroad and there were old books to read and DVD's for him to watch. Learning about antique car restoration was fascinating for both of us. Highly recommend this Inn!
