After a week long high-pressure conference in San Francisco, the Secret Cottages were the perfect follow-up. Perfect cottage with every thing we needed - comfortable bed, beautiful jacuzzi bath and steam room. Little touches like the fruit basket with home made cookies and scones made it even more special. We arrived a little late (and exhausted) the first night so... More

We have been here twice and loved the service, the restaurant, cottages, and location. After a day of Wine Tasting we come back here and relax or stroll around town. It's beautiful. The beds are cozy too. Our friends weren't fond of the skylights in the morning, but we didn't mind them at all. Not a fan of the steam... More

I did make a reservation as we were a group of six staying in Glen Ellen without a car. It was a perfect location with a pleasant surprise of delicious entrees. The food and service were fine. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the ambiance.

We visited this place with a party of 5 and had reservations. We were seated quickly and the server came immediately and got us drinks and made a good explanation of the menu items and specials. Had the hanger steak and it was prepared as ordered. Others raved the salmon. All in all the food was way above average and... More

We made a reservation in advance and then several locals turned up their noses when we mentioned our dinner plans. Decided to go anyway and had a good meal and martinis. Shrimp bisque, beet and poached pears, raw oysters, and gauc fries and mussells. The beet salad was my favorite! Fries were perfect as well. More shells than mussells unfortunately.... More

Tucked behind a fantastic restaurant and bar are a half dozen cottages. Ours had a fireplace, table and chairs, steam shower and jacuzzi. Didn't use the tub out of concern for CA water issues. Nice deck for sitting and watching hummingbirds drink from the fountain. Bed was tall and somewhat difficult for us short people but very comfortable. Breakfast is... More

Cosy little cottage but with way too much furniture for the space! Quiet rooms, easy parking and perfectly positioned to get around the delights of the Sonoma valley. We didn't eat at the inn but had drinks there - watch out for their super spicy Bloody Mary!

Glen Ellen itself was certainly not our favorite place in our wine country tour, as there was not much going on and the town was small. But I did not take that into consideration when writing this review as the inn itself was absolutely lovely. The staff was very friendly, the bed was plush and comfortable, the daily fruit/cookie basket... More

This is an incredible place to stay after a wonderful day of wine tasting. The room was clean and spacious, quiet, and very comfortable. Restaurants are within walking distance as well as a few wineries. The jetted tub and steam shower was the perfect way to relax after a long day!
