About Lori Solomon

I was born and raised in Oakland, CA, and moved to Sebastopol in 2013. I had been visiting friends in the area for 20 years, and always enjoyed my time in the north bay. Sebastopol also has family ties for me, my Great Grandfather moved his family here from Colorado in the early 1900's and and worked for Luther Burbank on his farm. 100+ years later, here I am enjoying Sebastopol. Although the town has changed a lot, I'm sure the reasons for living here haven't changed much, it's a wonderful community.

Lori Solomon purchased this house in 2013

Great House

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and having Lori on site is a big plus. Lori is so cordial and helpful and has very good restaurant recommendations. We stayed during, probably, the hottest week of the year so the lack of AC was an issue during the day but open windows cooled the house of nicely at night. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again and recommend the house for travelers to Sebastopol.

Outstanding vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family came to the area for a week during the summer and loved staying at the Sebastopol guest house! The owners were so friendly and accommodating and the house was perfect for us and our kids. We felt so at home there from the moment we checked in! The area is lovely and everything is in walking distance from the property. But the house itself is the real gem -- we were so comfortable there, it was hard to get motivated to go exploring! This is an A+ rental and we will most definitely be back in the future.

Perfect wedding accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We had four adults and two children stay for four days during our son's wedding. I couldn't have asked for better accommodations. It was absolutely spotless and equipped with everything we needed to fix our meals. It's a short walk to town, which we really appreciated. We followed some of Lori's suggestions for places to eat, and weren't disappointed. Lori also let us entertain a few family members the day after the wedding for a light brunch. Our guests commented on how welcoming and clean the house was. We were able to enjoy a sunny morning in the back yard. She even offered to deliver a hair dryer that I left behind. She made our stay flawless!

Excellent space. Very well equipped. Very convenient location.

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay, despite a problem that was created by the previous guests. Lori did everything she could to accommodate us and fix the issue. She's very kind and attentive and made a situation that was not her fault as good as could be. We would stay here again if we are in the area.

This Vacation Rental truly is a home away

  • 5 of 5

We went to Sebastopol for the Apple Blossom Festival in April 2017 with four adults and two toddlers. The house is very spacious, super clean and comes with everything you could think of - fully equipped kitchen including salt, pepper, herbs and all those little things you need and don't want to buy for a two day stay. There were a lot of board games, puzzles and books. Lorri, the host, welcomed us and showed us around. She was very nice and even offered to mail me the sweater we left at the house. I loved the house and definitely recommend spending some relaxed days here. Thanks Lorri

A great weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lori's guest house for two nights and had a very nice experience. It was spotless when we arrived and had all of the comforts of home, right down to the stainless steel coffee measuring scoop. We had one minor problem -- one of the smoke alarms went off for no reason in the middle of the night -- but Lori replaced it without question that same day while we were out enjoying the downtown Sebastopol area. We had no problems whatsoever after that.

Speaking of the downtown area, it is very walkable from the guest house and has a variety of cool shops and nice restaurants. We spent a whole day exploring its charms.

In short, I would not hesitate to rent this house again!

Sebastopol is a unique and dynamic town that’s equal parts quaint and whimsical. There are many things to see and do while visiting Sebastopol, here are a few of our favorites.

On any given day, you can walk to town and see some of the area’s best food producers, wine makers, brewers, distillers and artists at The Barlow. If you're visiting over the weekend, you can look for treasures at the Flea Market on Gravenstein Hwy. and the Farmers Market on Sunday is always full of tasty treats made by local artisans.

Ragle Regional Park offers great spots to picnic, bike ride, and bird-watch. There are are equestrian trails, playgrounds and a peace garden as well. At the Luther Burbank Experimental Farm you can learn about Burbank's career and the 800 varieties of fruits, flowers, vegetables, and grains he developed; plums and prunes, the Shasta Daisy, and novelties such as Plumcots, Thornless Blackberries, and Spineless Cactus.

The Joe Rodota Trail is another option for an outdoor activity. The paved trail is 8.47 miles and runs along Highway 12 between Sebastopol and Santa Rosa. The trail offers an opportunity for families with young children to experience an outdoor outing for walking, bicycle riding, horseback riding, and roller skating.

The Laguna de Santa Rosa Trail, is also makes for a great activity. Visitors can discover the biologically diverse landscape of Sonoma County’s largest freshwater wetland.This 1.8-mile multi-use trail is open to hikers and equestrians and includes an overlook with benches and Laguna and vineyard views. The trail runs on the east side of the Laguna channel between Highway 12 and Occidental Road, with parking areas along both roads.

The Ives Park & Pool is conveniently located 2 blocks from the house, where you can find a playground and community pool. The pool offers swim lessons, lap swim, family swim and aqua fitness classes. During the summer you can catch free concerts on the Peacetown Stage every Wednesday evening.

Hop in the car and you can be at one of Sonoma County’s top wineries or the beach within 30 minutes. A drive to Bodega Bay makes for a great day trip and don't forget to stop in the town of Bodega where Alfred Hitchcock filmed the classic movie, 'The Birds'.

Valley Ford, Occidental and Guerneville are also nearby and Tomales Bay is a must visit if you like oysters. If you prefer grapes to seafood, then you're in the right spot as there are a number of wineries within 15 minutes of the Sebastopol Guest House including Joseph Phelps, Graton Ridge, Russian River Vineyards, Lynmar Estates, Merry Edwards Winery, and Dutton Goldfield Winery.

Consider finishing the day by enjoying a massage at a nearby spa, dining at one of our many excellent restaurants or catching a movie at the Rialto Cinema.

Be sure to check out the Sonoma County Calendar of Events for special activities occurring during your stay.
