In the heart of Sonoma, California, just 90 minutes away from the bustle of San Francisco, lies the beautiful Farmhouse Inn. This family-owned boutique resort is the perfect getaway for the equestrian lover, and a fantastic opportunity to experience the romance and serenity of wine country. It’s unique location and amenities have earned it the title of best hotel in California, and it’s easy to see why.
With vaulted ceilings, open-air hallways, and stable doors, Farmhouse Inn evokes the clean lines of a barn. Each room is decorated for simplistic beauty and stylish comfort. The rooms also feature one-of-a-kind horse murals hand-drawn by a local artist, as well as seasonal flowers and organic Sonoma-made bath products. There are 25 rooms on the property and five levels of accommodation to meet every occasion and desire. Amenities include saunas, jet tubs, private fireplaces, and private patios, as well as the personalized care and assistance of six concierges.
While the hotel is a luxury spot all its own, the Farmhouse Inn also features a luxurious spa, world-class dining, and countless activities for guests. The spa is located in the Carriage House, a new building designed to resemble an equestrian stable. The spa utilizes fresh produce harvested on-site for a farm-to-table spa experience. Spa services integrate the use of herbs grown in the Farmhouse’s kitchen garden and heirloom cider apples from their own ranch. With a menu that includes herbal compresses, seasonal scrubs, and personalized spa creations, you will want to be pampered again and again.
The original farmhouse at Farmhouse Inn dates back to 1873 and still stands on the property, housing the resort’s Michelin-starred restaurant. The restaurant uses locally sourced food from the Bartolomei Ranch and other local artisan farms. The menu is ever-changing, the décor is humble, the staff is knowledgeable, and advance reservations are an almost certain requirement.
Along with the considerable extent of the resort’s amenities, they also offer horseback riding, hiking, and cycling packages. Activities and events throughout Sonoma and Napa Wine Country are also available, offering wine tastings and vineyard tours throughout the year. We highly recommend staying here when looking for a place to unwind after an exciting event at the Sonoma Horse Park.
If the Farmhouse Inn is calling your name be sure to take advantage of the fantastic promotion they are running through November 3rd: Stay for three or more nights (including a Tuesday) in a King Deluxe or King Luxury Suite, and Tuesday night is free!
With so much to do and see, it’s a destination getaway dream.
