Approximate time: 2 hours

  1. Exit the airport, following signs to I-5 South, towards Sacramento/Yuba City.
  2. Merge onto I-5 S toward Sacramento/Yuba City.
  3. Merge onto I-80 W via EXIT 522 towards San Francisco.
  4. Head west on Highway 80, towards San Francisco.
  5. Just past the 680/80 interchange, there is a right exit onto Highway 12 toward Napa and Sonoma. Take that exit, heading west on Highway 12.
  6. Follow Highway 12 for several miles, even when it overlaps with Highway 29 and later with Highway 121. Stay on Highway 12 towards Sonoma.
  7. As you approach Sonoma, Highway 12 expands to 2 lanes in each direction, briefly, for passing. Soon thereafter, you will come to a traffic signal at Napa Road. Exit Napa Road off Highway 12, before reaching the town of Sonoma.
  8. Stay on Napa Road all the way across Sonoma Valley. By the time it ends, its name will have changed to Leveroni Road.
  9. Turn right when Napa/Leveroni Road ends, onto Arnold Drive.
  10. 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.
  11. Madrone quickly dead ends onto Highway 12; turn left onto 12 toward Santa Rosa.
  12. Pass the first traffic signal.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  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.
