How to Get There
From the minute you arrive at Farmhouse Inn you know you're in for a treat. I've never had *so* many people from a single establishment greet me with such enthusiasm, kindness, excitement, and helpfulness. And the theme continued during our whole stay.
Backing up a bit, my boyfriend and I were nearing the end of months of work and I figured we could use a nice treat when we finished the project we were working on focused on R&R. And R&R is what we got. It's expensive, but if your goal is to maximize R&R, and enjoy a luxurious weekend away it's definitely worth it. We never even left the property and felt perfectly content the whole time. Highlights included:
-welcome glass of wine (choice of several varietals);
-property manager Thomas who is just insanely helpful/nice;
-complimentary snacks in our room including a mason jar of cheese/olive oil/nut spread, gourmet crackers, almonds, blue corn chips, salsa, beverages...);
-dry sauna in our own bathroom;
-bath bar where you can choose any number of locally made bars of soaps, bath salts, bubble bath, scrubs to take back to your room;
-jacuzzi tub in which to enjoy said bath bar items;
-s'mores kits and fire pits (with housemate marshmallows so good we went back for seconds);
-complimentary wine tasting from 4:30-5:30pm every night;
-a glorious pool/hot tub we practically had to ourselves (and spent all day at);
-farm-fresh lunch options we enjoyed outside (complete with a seasonal fruit popsicle dunked in Prosecco--the "adult popsicle") (special shout-out to Jason who was working a large table that day and we watched as he personally carried three large, heavy umbrellas over to make sure the table wasn't too hot);
-luxurious looking spa (we'll definitely be back to check it out;
-Michelin-starred restaurant that should rightfully be two or more stars... it was WONDERFUL and they're so accommodating they'll take any app and turn it into an entree if you'd like;
-delicious on-site breakfast;
-concierge willing to book personalized activities that suit the guests perfectly...
I'm probably forgetting something on this list because there's just *SO MUCH* great stuff about Farmhouse Inn. This may have been our first trip to the Inn, but it definitely won't be our last.
We had a wonderful suite, relaxing afternoon by the pool and an Amazing dinner! The selection of bath products, water and snacks in the room upon arrival, and homemade chocolate chip cookies at night are just some of the amenities we enjoyed! One of our favorite places we have ever visited! Can't wait to return!
The staff (concierge/check in/restaurant/housekeeping, etc) were all so enthusiastic and friendly it was like I was staying in their home. The rooms were immaculate and so quiet and relaxing I did not want to leave. And although it's Sonoma, the concierge Andrea did a great job of pointing out all of the other great activities Sonoma has (from visiting a hidden bakery and cheese shop, to hiking in Armstrong Park, to a great ramen restaurant in Sebastopol). Sonoma is great for their wine, but it was a lot more to offer and is a perfect get away for the family. I guess the only downside (of anywhere you stay in Sonoma) is having to rent a car, but even that could be arranged through the concierge. And the food in the restaurant was well-deserving of their honors. Make sure you eat there at least once.
