The intimate Kenwood Inn and Spa is cloaked in fragrant shade trees and towering palms, creating a private retreat with quiet courtyards and lush gardens. The look is decidedly Tuscan, with ocher-washed stucco walls, quarry-tile floors and archways over flagstone paths that run through the gardens.
Bed & Bath
Ivy crawls across the two-story buildings that house the lavish guestrooms. The style in all 29 rooms is grand, with an elegant, vaguely rococo vibe. Giant carved wooden armoires, heavy velvet draperies, oil paintings and sumptuous fabrics create a marvelous sense of place. All rooms have fireplaces, most of them gas-burning. There are no televisions to distract you from your sylvan surroundings (though there are iPod docks).
If you’re not up for winery hopping, you can easily linger here all day. A guests-only dining room serves contemporary Cal-Med Italian cuisine and the five-room spa features regional-focused treatments, including a Matanzas Creek Lavender Scrub and a Honey Wine Wrap. The no-children policy means the pool deck and gardens are always quiet.
In the Area
Book a spa treatment at the on-site spa — our favorites are the Rosemary Salt Scrub and the fitting Kenwood Wine Wrap. If you’d rather do something more active, head to Jack London State Historic Park for insight into the famous writer’s life and drop-dead views of Sonoma Valley. But this is Wine Country, so head to nearby Benziger Winery for a fantastic crash course in winemaking, which includes a tractor ride through the vineyards. For the best wines, stick with the reserves. Alternatively, the family-run Kaz Vineyard & Winery has a cult following for its obscure small-production reds and blends and is a must-visit. To take a break from sipping fine wines, stop at neighboring Wildwood Farm, Nursery and Sculpture Garden to see beautiful outdoor art amid many varieties of Japanese maple.
How to Get There
My sixth visit here, 1st after it was bought out by 4 sisters. With the bath house decommissioned, the restaurant and wine cave not operating, the spa closed.....though the wine cave may open during the “high season”....this property is no where close to what it was. To boot, i had booked a specific room and did not get it. I was concerned when i booked it as the person helping me clearly lacked a good knowledge of the layout which is shocking given that it has less than 30 rooms. A beautiful property with good service and nice staff.... but BRING BACK THE AMENITIES!!!!
What a lovely surprise this inn was. We made a last minute reservation and will absolutely return. The room was spacious and beautiful. Fireplace and seating super cozy. The hot tubs and pool perfect to begin a relaxing evening. Wine and cheese hour in front of the fireplace, stunning. Can’t recommend it enough.
What great hospitality in Sonoma. Rooms were spacious with awesome comfort to include a fireplace on cool nights. Complimentary wine tasting from 5-6pm was also very nice. It also had several heated pools in which one was away from the larger pool area. Would highly recommend.
Beautiful villa type location in Kenwood. Driving in, you would think you had entered a Tuscan village. The property is meticulously maintained. Everywhere you look, there are flowering trees, rose bushes, palm trees, olive trees and grapevines. The parking lot is cobblestone. The rooms are fabulous. Luxurious feather beds, high quality sheets and pillows, and a giant wardrobe and bathroom complete with jetted tub and tumbled marble shower. The breakfasts daily were delicious, and we did partake in the wine and cheese hour at 5pm. Would stay here again. And there are plenty of lovely wineries and restaurants just an Uber ride away!
An altogether beautiful inn. Very comfortable large spacious room and bath. Great pool and hot tub. Beautiful gardens, picture perfect. Very accommodating and friendly staff. Located between Kenwood and Sonoma with close proximity to SF. We’ll stay longer next time
