To celebrate my partner's 68th birthday we enjoyed a wonderful 4 course dinner with very special Russian River wine. From the amus-bouche (hope I spelled right) of mushroom soup with onion foam (looked just like an espresso) to the gingerbread salad (gingerbread, ginger pastry, vanilla ice cream, apricot puree) every bite was super special. Service was beautiful, prompt but not...

Seclusion. Quiet. Ditch the kids. Don't tell them where you are - they'll never find you. Surrounded by the romantic Russian River Valley. Vineyards but a short stagger away. Healdsburg a 15 minute drive. But why leave the property? Wonderful spa. Great restaurant with fresh, tasty, healthy food. But then, why leave the room? Large, comfy, with a steam shower...

It is difficult to imagine a more ideal location in which to spend time - to relax, then to explore, then to eat the most sumptuous of dinner and breakfast by a chef whose reputation has been sustained from year to year. From start to finish, we were 'pampered' by the warmth and genuine pleasure to host shown by all...

Our owners Catherine and Joe truly invite guests into this special home they've built here. Staff feels the same--we love sharing our favorite places here and around Sonoma County with guests as we do our friends and family. So glad we could pamper you during your stay!

We loved our upstairs room with steam shower, large balcony, fireplace, sitting area and walk in closet with very tasteful decor. The outside lacks somewhat in appeal as it just seems massive and too close together even though the landscaping was quite nice. Honestly though, who cares once you enter your room, it is amazing! They have designed in my...

Our rooms are the perfect spaces to relax, away from the world. We love ending the day with s'mores by the firepits getting to know the other guests, but our favorite time is in the mornings in the cozy beds with the fireplaces crackling. So glad you enjoyed the big bright barn rooms!

Farmhouse Inn is a very relaxing 25-room (including 6 cottages) hotel enveloped in luxury and extraordinary service and style. The barn-like/farm-like buildings are shaker-style soothing in their simplicity. The entire aesthetic of the property is one of quietude and privacy. The location of Farmhouse Inn is perfect for couples who want to escape the touristy ambiance and traffic-clogged areas of...

I chose this restaurant for its one star Michelin rating. I wanted to give my partner a special meal experience on our get away to Sonoma. I was not disappointed. I had a wonderful 3 course meal with wine pairings and my partner ordered a la cart. My raspberry souffle was one of the best desserts I have had in...

We stayed in one of the King Deluxe rooms. This was one of the nicest rooms we've ever stayed in. Beautifully appointed; great bathroom (loved the heated floor); fireplace that can be used inside or for the very private deck area outside the bedroom. The property is lovely and meticulously maintained; the two young male cats were a bonus (at...

I know some reviewers thought this place was too expensive for the amenities, service, views, and/or size of the rooms. Perhaps my husband and I are just used to a less lavish lifestyle, but we were kind of blown away by the place. I can't imagine a better location. We were 30 minutes or less from more wineries than we...

We decided to travel three nights here, a few hours from our wine country home to experience this highly rated hotel and restaurant. Our King Deluxe was $1200/per night, but we got a third night free early week/making it $800 plus. The room was not divided in such a way that it had privacy if one person wanted to sit...

We're glad you got to enjoy some of the wonderful wineries and restaurants in the area--even as a local there is a lot to explore! Our concierge team makes it their job to know the best spots. On property it looks like we missed some communication in confirming the spa set up and service fee policies. But, our spa bar...

We stayed in one of the older King cottages by the main road. We knew that we were not in the renovated rooms, but at a $700 per night price point we were still expecting higher quality than what we received. Noise from the highway inside the room was extremely loud. My husband tried to take a conference call from...

Our room categories each have their own amenities--and one of our favorite parts of the cottages are the wood burning fireplaces. These spaces are original to the property and have been updated recently, but do have a distinctly different feel than our newer barn rooms. It's part of their charm! We're tucked into a little valley on River Road between...
