Approximate time: 2 hours

  1. Exit the airport, following signs for Highway 380 West/San Bruno.
  2. Highway 380 West quickly connects to Highway 280. Take Highway 280 North, towards the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco.
  3. Exit Highway 280 by staying in the left lanes, following the signs to 19th Avenue/Golden Gate Bridge. (Do NOT follow 280 into San Francisco!)
  4. Stay on 19th Avenue for quite a ways; it is a “surface street” that will eventually feed right onto the Golden Gate Bridge (GGB), which is Highway 101. Follow GGB signs.
  5. Cross the Golden Gate Bridge, heading north.
  6. Come north on Highway 101, past San Rafael and almost to Novato.
  7. Exit 101 onto Highway 37 East, toward Vallejo/Napa.
  8. Exit 37 at Highway 121 for Sonoma/Napa; left lane exit.
  9. Exit 121 by going straight (at 4-way stop) onto Highway 116 toward Petaluma/Glen Ellen.
  10. Exit 116 fairly soon (3 miles +/-) when the sign points straight ahead to Glen Ellen/Arnold Drive; you will then be on Arnold Drive.
  11. Stay on Arnold Drive for quite a ways (6+ miles). Pass some areas of roadside commerce and the Sonoma National Golf Course. Eventually, you will come to a stop sign along Arnold Drive. It will be at a small intersection with a 4-way stop sign (Firehouse Corner is a landmark). Turn right at that stop sign, onto Madrone Road.
  12. Madrone quickly dead ends onto Highway 12; turn left onto 12 towards Santa Rosa.
  13. About 5-6 miles later, after the first traffic signal, you’ll pass the Kenwood Restaurant and soon after, you will see a second traffic signal. Turn left at the signal, onto Warm Springs Road.
  14. The driveway is 7/10 of a mile down Warm Springs Road. It is on the left, behind a big eucalyptus tree. There is a small green and white road sign for #854 across from our driveway.
  15. Go up the long driveway, keeping right, until you come to a circular driveway, marked #854 on the fence post. (It is the second house up.)
  16. This is the Main House at Kenwood Oaks. You may park there for check-in.
