Cloverdale is a small picturesque town in the northern region of Sonoma County, about 85 miles from San Francisco. Straddling Highway 101, it's about halfway between Santa Rosa and Ukiah. Cloverdale's 2.7 square miles are part of the Wine Country's Alexander Valley, and several vineyards and wineries are nearby.

Cloverdale is just far enough away from the Bay to enjoy a different pace and rhythm, and its scenic setting complements the peaceful quality of life. The population tops 11,000 and the area offers some of the most affordable properties in the county.

Boating and fishing are easily accessible at Lake Sonoma and the Russian River. Biking and hiking the redwoods, wine tasting and skydiving are all part of the fun in this charming community.

The school system is strong, and Santa Rosa Junior College and Mendocino College (Ukiah) are nearby for vocational programs and continuing education. The Senior Center is an active one with a wide variety of activities from technology classes to dance, and exercise to foreign language studies.

Alexander Valley Healthcare is a well-equipped facility and a full roster of medical and health professionals are based here.

Cloverdale is a carefully-preserved nugget of Northern California, just right for those seeking a less stressful place to call home.
