Approximate time: 2 hours
- Exit the airport, following signs to I-880 N toward Downtown Oakland.
- Stay on I-880 for several miles, and merge onto I-580/I-80 East towards Sacramento.
- Exit I-580/I-80 by merging on to I-580 west, towards Richmond and the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge.
- Cross the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge, heading west.
- Follow the signs to get to 101 north.
- Come north on 101, past San Rafael and almost to Novato.
- Exit 101 onto Highway 37 East, toward Vallejo/Napa.
- Exit 37 at Highway 121 for Sonoma/Napa; left lane exit.
- Exit 121 by going straight (at 4-way stop) onto Highway 116 toward Petaluma/Glen Ellen.
- Exit 116 fairly soon (3 miles +/-) when the sign points straight ahead to Glen Ellen/Arnold Drive; you will then be on Arnold Drive.
- 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. (There is something called Firehouse Corner there, as a landmark.) Turn right at that stop sign, onto Madrone Road.
- Madrone quickly dead ends onto Highway 12; turn left onto 12 toward Santa Rosa.
- Pass the first traffic signal.
- About 3 miles later, you’ll pass Salt & Stone Restaurant and soon after, you will see a left turn lane at another traffic signal and a sign for Warm Springs Road. Turn left at that signal, onto Warm Springs Road.
- The driveway is 7/10 of a mile down Warm Springs Road. It is on the left, and there is a small green and white road sign for #854 across from our driveway. (Hanging below that sign is an orange metal butterfly.) Turn left and cross the short bridge.
- 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.)
- This is the Main House at Kenwood Oaks. You may park there for check-in.
