Few things rejuvenate the soul as a quiet drive in the country. Few short drives can equal the simple beauty of a drive through Bennett Valley.

Clean, safe, public park, schools, golf course, grocery stores, public transportation throughout, plus wide open areas providing a backroad rural drive toward Sonoma. Good for biking.

Santa Rosa's Bennett Valley, lies to the south and east of town, not on the routes usually taken by visitors to the wine country, but is worth a drive, particularly for those with a little extra time that can be spent en route to Glen Ellen or Sonoma. From downtown Santa Rosa, find your way to Montgomery Drive, turn right... More

Beautiful Bennett Valley is home to Annadel State Park and the park extends all the way to Kenwood. There are miles of gorgeous trails with unlimited vistas, welcoming to both bikers and hikers. Lake Ilsanjo is a nice destination spot or a rest stop if you continue to Buick Meadow or farther on. You can access Annadel from Spring Lake... More

With a city, county and state park (which are all contiguous) withing walking distance, and bus service, a mile from shopping center (with Safeway, restaurants, etc.) you can't beat BV ambiance. Nearby is the city golf course - with an amazing clubhouse (the Legends restaurant) with a view of the 18th hole. Fantastic for Thursday evenings in the summer with... More

It's a great part of town. Unfortunately it has become too high priced for our children to afford to live where they grew up.

It is a striking beautiful part of Sonoma county, not crowded and wonderful to drive or hike in. Do yourself a favor- check it out.

My wife and I have lived in Bennett Valley for 18 years now. The valley is absolutely gorgeous, particularly in the fall when the vineyards are showing their myriad of fall colors.
