Farmhouse Inn in Forestville, California

Located in Forestville, a tiny hamlet cradled in the Russian River Valley region of Sonoma County, is a romantic retreat for oenophiles who enjoy the riches that only California's wine country can offer. Erected in 1873, Farmhouse Inn has been completely restored to its 19th-century splendor and is a classic American farmhouse with a mélange of Victorian touches and provincial furnishings. With just 25 pristine rooms, guests slumber in an enchanting cottage or traditional guest room, where plump feather beds, oversize soaking tubs, fireplaces and other luxurious amenities await.

Wake up to a savory two-course morning meal including an array of baked goods, seasonal fruits, robust coffee and a hot made-to-order entrée. In the evening, reserve a corner table at the inn's Michelin-starred restaurant for an elegant meal paired with local vintages by Sonoma County's only Master Sommelier. The spa at Farmhouse Inn is one of intimate surroundings, where personalized service is paramount, treatments are sublime and organic products are handmade. The grounds sit on the edge of a wooded area punctuated with trickling fountains, and are equally delightful. In the distance, vineyards dot the landscape and ripened grapes dangle from neatly lined rows of mature vines. Enjoy a dip in the pool or lounge in the warm Sonoma sun. In the afternoon hit the wine trail in search of the perfect selection, visit the region's charming town squares, or simply take a scenic drive overlooking the rugged Pacific coast. Flee to Farmhouse Inn for a bit of relaxation and put everyday life on hold.

I have heard about Farmhouse Inn for years and we finally got around to trying it for our anniversary. First I must say that it IS a very charming and pleasant place to stay with friendly and attentive service and an great spa (although the spa does lack some important amenities like steam room, sauna and the changing/locker area is co-ed). My complaints and comments are mostly in relation to how incredibly high the price is to stay here. We were really quite shocked how expensive this hotel is for what you get. At such a high price it was hard to not be underwhelmed and somewhat critical. First I was very surprised to see how small the Farmhouse Inn is and how it is located on a VERY busy street. It was not the tucked away and quiet retreat with ample walking grounds that I expected. Our very tiny room was in fact in the main house above the restaurant and the busy street noise was always apparent. Perhaps if we had stayed in a room further back on the property this would have changed our experience slightly. So our room was generally unimpressive given the price. It was comfortable and pleasant but for $800 a night it was a let down. Especially in comparison to other hotels where we have stayed for a comparable price. I must mention too that I was awaken by clanking glasses and noise downstairs in the kitchen at 7am as they prepped for breakfast. Again, at $800 a night, not ideal or expected. Another knock for us was the virtually non-existent pool side service. To their credit they tell you that the food/lunch service at the pool is minimal. They were correct! We like to sit by a pool and relax and order lunch and drinks when we vacation. We were able to do this here BUT the menu options were slim and it appeared that the seemingly busy front desk woman doubled at the "pool service" person. In general pool side service didn't appear to be a practice that they put too much of an emphasis upon (or perhaps our mid-week stay factored in here). Again for the Inn's reputation and price of admission, more extensive pool-side service was just something we expected. I must mention also that for pool people, this pool itself is very simple. Almost like a back-yard pool. Lastly, the Restaurant: We would have loved to have dined here but the night we made our hotel reservation (Wednesday) turned out to be the night that the restaurant is closed. This wasn't clear to me until it was too late to cancel or change the reservation. This is my fault for not looking but it was a bummer nonetheless. I would still like to try the restaurant as it looks wonderful (our breakfast was delicious) but I don't think we will choose to stay at the hotel. So in the end our take-away is that The Farmhouse Inn is a lovely place to stay but terribly over-priced. Do set your expectations that it will be VERY VERY expensive for what feels like a glorified, higher end Bed and Breakfast.

My (now) fiancee & I had an incredible stay at the Farmhouse Inn. I chose the hotel as a romantic getaway to get engaged - the team at the hotel was extremely accommodating to my plans and helped make the weekend very special - they gave us a beautiful room (nice balance of very tasteful rustic / modern wine country style) and provided a special turn-down service. I especially appreciated the flexibility / sensitivity of the team - I made a no-cancellation reservation, but when the surprise proposal didn't go according to plan and I had to cancel a night, the team waived the usual penalty. That level of service & care is very rare and always appreciated. We also had dinner at the restaurant which was one of the best meals I've had in the bay area. Incredible service, phenomenal food, and a beautiful setting. We'll be coming back here for years to come!

I can't praise Terry and the Farmhouse Inn enough for making our elopement so very easy and beautiful. We knew that we wanted to sneak away alone and not worry about the details of wedding planning, but we still wanted an elegant ceremony and a terrific meal. We live in the region, and explored a number of Napa/Sonoma hotels offering elopement packages. This was not the least expensive option, but we agree that every extra cent was well spent. The fact that the inn hosts only one tiny wedding at a time meant that we had the undisturbed attention of the staff and felt very special. The planning couldn't have been simpler. Terry contacted me about my thoughts on flowers (bright, happy, reds, yellows, oranges), cake flavor choice, and preferred times for massages (included) and dinner (also included-with wine pairing). Our officiant contacted me and offered a lovely non-denominational script that I could use as little or as much of as I wanted. Terry gave me contact information for hair and makeup artists (Alisse and Arden) who provided on-site service. On our arrival, there was a sweet welcoming message outside the reception area and wine and a cheese plate in the suite. We were greeted by Terry & told what to expect. The day of our wedding we had the inn's wonderful breakfast and massages, read by the pool, and were made beautiful by Alisse and Arden. The photographer arrived on time and took photos of us all over the property, and the 5:30pm ceremony was simple and sweet (the way we wanted it). We had a little downtime, then dinner in the fabulous restaurant, finishing with a beautiful and delicious little wedding cake. Waiting in our suite were flower petals, a hotel gift, and various bath salts. Throughout our stay, the staff was unobtrusive but very friendly and accommodating. Everything was just so mellow and relaxed and the attention to detail was lovely! This is a place we'll look forward to revisiting in the years to come.

We had a very relaxing stay at Farmhouse Inn - we didn't even leave the property from our Sat afternoon arrive until our Sun noon departure! We got a great last minute deal on the room and they moved us from above the Resturant (too much street noise) to a cute little cottage that was much quieter and private. We had our own little sitting area with gorgeous abutilon flowers. The pool area was great with excellent service - they provide lots of free snacks and drinks. One of the best parts was the free wine tasting and appetizers - you sit outside at this long table and can meet the other guests. We ate the the Farmhouse restaurant and then roasted smores at the outside fire pits after dinner! They have homemade marshmallows and graham crackers and french chocolate! Yum yum! Be careful to not eat too much sugar.

I cannot say enough great things about the Farmhouse Inn, and I am not sure what the negative reviews are about. I write about food and travel and tend of have high expectations, but the Farmhouse Inn blew them away on every level - the property, rooms, staff and food were all incredible. Compared with other hotels in the area, and even in Napa, the Farmhouse Inn is definitely a cut above. The property itself is gorgeous, and the rooms are "Farmhouse Luxe" - we a had a big, gorgeous bathroom with a steam shower, indoor/outdoor fireplace, and one of the most comfortable king beds I've slept in. The outdoor area is the only thing that could have used improvement, however it faced the side of a hill and there's not much you can do to change that, so I'd request a room on the upper level instead. Claire - the Front Office Manager - and the concierge staff put together the most amazing itinerary for us during our stay, which makes all the difference when visiting wine country. We went to some well known and some smaller, unique wineries, and had VIP treatment every step of the way. Their dining suggestions were also on point, but the restaurant at the hotel should not be missed. I am so sad we had to leave the Farmhouse Inn, but can't wait to come back in the future!
