How to Get There
My husband and I stayed right after Thanksgiving for a quick little break from the family and our toddler. Absolute heaven. From check in to check out the staff took wonderful care of us. The Hotel Manager in particular, Thomas helped to set us up with exclusive wine tasting at nearby wineries (MacRostie & Medlock Ames) as well as to recommend a biking route for my husband. I had a wonderful spa treatment while my husband was biking and my therapist Gretchen was very attentive. The Ginger Honey treatment was so relaxing.
Our room was a wonderful oasis. In particular the gas fireplace, deep soaking tub and steam shower.
Another highlight from our stay was dinner in the restaurant. All of the staff were very welcoming and the food was amazing but the sommelier in particular was very approachable and I enjoyed watching her interact with all the nearby tables. They also have a nightly wine and cheese hour and smores by the firepit in the evenings. Can't recommend the hotel enough. It's a special spot. We will be back!
I won't be able to capture the true feeling and special time that we had for two nights at Farmhouse Inn, but it was best stated as we were leaving and my husband said "I don't want to leave this place". I had read a review of Farmhouse Inn a couple of years ago and put it on my short list of places to visit, and we finally had a chance for a two-night stay. One of the things that you recognize immediately is that Farmhouse Inn isn't large and it isn't fussy. They pay attention to every detail, but we felt comfortable the whole time - it didn't matter what we were wearing or what car we were driving, the goal of Farmhouse Inn is clearly to provide guests with a perfect place to relax and unwind and enjoy the area. During our short stay, every person we came across was friendly and helpful. Starting with Grant who took us to our room and gave us the rundown on the property and how to work the features in the room to Evan who went to town to get our pizza when we just wanted to stay in our room for dinner. The room itself was phenomenal - large and comfortable with upscale yet comfortable features. The king bed was incredibly comfortable, the indoor/outdoor fireplace was a great touch, and the heated bathroom floor was awesome. And of course, the personalized welcome note and the bottle of wine were greatly appreciated. The hotel has a heated outdoor pool and a lovely spa but we didn't have time to take advantage of them. There was a nightly wine and cheese tasting that was the perfect activity prior to dinner. The hotel also has a curated winery program that allows hotel guests to focus on certain wineries and guests can usually get free tastings which is quite a deal since tastings these days typically run $40 and up per person, but you have to reserve through the concierge. Our incredible room was near the chicken coop and I enjoyed my coffee in the morning watching the hens. A neat treat for us was on our final morning when I came back from the lobby with coffee in both hands. As I pushed the door open with my foot, out of nowhere a black cat came running into our room. She was extremely friendly and was a purr-machine. I kept offering to let her outside, but she confidently walked right towards the fireplace, curled up, and took an hour-long nap. Turns out that she's Charlotte the Farmhouse's 13-year-old cat and it was our good fortune to meet her that final morning. So in the end, our stay at the Farmhouse Inn was incredibly relaxing and peaceful and we can't wait to come back. We really appreciated the attention to detail and the high-quality, yet unfussy, service.
Exceptional property with an exceptional staff. Friendly and personal, focused on service with Sonoma ease and relaxation. Spa and dining services met every expectation. Overall Farmhouse Inn is at the top of our list.
We arrived a bit before our reservation but were seated immediately. The atmosphere is warm and relaxing. Our waiter greeted us, and shared some menu information, then left us to our decision. The menu is straightforward and offered excellent selections that met a variety of tastes. The food service was effecient and timely. We chose scallop, halibut, tortellini, and lamb. Each perfectly prepared and served. The wine pairings were great fun due the uncommon varietals served; gerwurztraminer, gruner vetliner, and others. We enjoyed the wines very much. We would have preferred the sommelier be more engaged, but he was very busy. Expensive, of course, but we enjoyed it.
Of the last 7 years, last five at the Farmhouse, this was our best trip to the area. The weather was fantastic, we biked the Alexander Valley for our first time which was one of the best rides we have ever had and cannot say enough about the Farmstand, what a great idea!!! Dinner at Farmhouse is always delicious and this year did not disappoint and Ubering back and forth to Gueyserville to get to Diavolo & the Gun Club(Cool bar with live music) worked out very well. We are already counting the days down to next October, see you then.
