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 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

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.

Great home base for our vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for our cycle holiday. Lots of room and well appointed. The patio and yard gave us a great place for bike maintenance while having a post-ride beer. Thanks, Lorie!

Perfect property and location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. Home is conveniently located within Sonoma County, and within walking distance of anything you might need or want to visit in Sebastopol. Lori was on hand to greet us and available if needed. She obviously cares for her property and her guests because the home and grounds are lovingly maintained and she has provided every little thing her guests might need while staying there. We enjoyed the garden, the apples from the tree, and sitting on the deck for outdoor dining. On a personal note. . .we didn't know until we arrived that the home was connected to Luther Burbank via Lori's great grandfather. We were in Northern California for the wedding of our son. He and his bride are both horticulturalists so for us the Luther Burbank connection added to our enjoyment of the house!

Wonderful house in the midst of wine country

  • 5 of 5

The only problem with writing this review is that there is no sixth star available. So here it is --> *. We are from the east coast and came to Sebastopol with our daughter, son, and daughter-in-law (both at UC Davis) for four nights. The house is immaculately clean and ENORMOUS! The kitchen has everything you might want for preparing meals, even a salad spinner. The house is set back from the road, so there is almost no noise. The backyard is serene, and we saw all kinds of birds come by to take advantage of the bird bath. Lori is so nice and helpful. She recommended two great wineries (Balletto and Furthermore, which used to be Graton) for Pinot Noir tastings. It was very hard to leave after our 4-night stay. If you go, make sure to walk down Florence Street (Avenue?) to see the artistic creations in the front yards. We couldn't have been happier with our Sonoma vacation. Thanks, Lori!

Comfortable spacious house near town

  • 4 of 5

Lori met us on arrival and was extremely helpful and friendly. Her property was perfect for our group of 6. The living and kitchen areas are spacious, light and comfortable and it's easy to walk into town for restaurants and shopping.The house has some traffic noise during the morning rush hour but it doesn't last long. I would happily return for another stay.

thanks Lori

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.
