Located in the beautiful Alexander Valley region, Geyserville is a cute little town in northern Sonoma County. It gets its name from the hot springs in the nearby mountains. These quickly turned the town into a popular tourist attraction in the late 1800s. With its cute old western-style downtown and many wineries, it remains local favorite. Here’s your guide to a day in Geyserville.
Spend Some Time on the Lake
Ten minutes west of downtown is the beautiful Lake Sonoma. Spend a peaceful few hours at the large manmade lake surrounded by rolling hills. You can swim, rent a boat, or hike on more than forty miles of trails.
Follow the Sculpture Trail
Like Cloverdale, Geyserville has a unique collection of sculptures on display that are changed every year. If you’re heading north, get off 101 at the highway 128 exit. If you’re going south, get off at the Canyon Road exit. You’ll pass by lots of interesting art on Geyserville’s Sculpture Trail.
Explore the Cute Downtown
Downtown Geyserville retains its western-style charm, with its cute old buildings. Spend some time browsing around. Check out Bosworth & Son for western wear and gifts. Across the street you’ll find GinGilli’s Vintage Home which offers a huge variety of antique and vintage items.
Dinner at Diavola Pizzeria and Salumeria
Geyserville has some amazing restaurants, but Diavola Pizzeria is one of our favorites. Set in an early 1900s landmark, they offer locally-sourced ingredients, handmade pasta, and pizza from a wood-burning oven.
Stay the Night
Why not stay a while? Geyserville has some lovely accommodations. Here are just a couple.
The Hope-Merril House Bed & Breakfast Inn is housed in a restored Eastlake Victorian home. Sleep in a cozy vintage-style rooms and wake up to a lovely country breakfast in the dining room.
Located in a vineyard, the family-owned and operated Geyserville Inn is a great choice. Choose between forty-one luxury rooms and suites or a private cottage and relax in beautiful Alexander Valley.
