The Toll House sits at the edge of a beautiful, remote valley in the hills above Anderson Valley’s biggest town, Boonville. Known as Bell Valley, its original Native inhabitants were of the Pomo tribes. When the Anderson Valley was settled by white Europeans during the gold rush era, Bell Valley’s stewards grew hops for early settlers to the area. Now, open meadows, oak woodlands, fir forests, and a pond beautify the 650 acres. Possible wildlife sightings include deer, wild turkey, countless birds, wild boar, and the occasional fox, coyote or wildcat.
We encourage visitors to take a stroll or ride your bike along our private rocked road to experience the views. There are also a handful of moderate trails to expand the options for hikers. The many knolls and wooded areas are conducive to both celebration and contemplation. Whether you’re sitting on the patio or trekking up to the ridge, the beauty and serenity of the land will rejuvenate and inspire.
