I loved this quasi-Asian styled, adult Inn. I say adult, not because the Inn restricts children, but because no one should bring children to this quiet, peaceful place. Every detail was thought through to perfection....overall design, quality of materials, physical location and on and on. Breakfast in the dining room was lovely, with fresh local fruits, homemade bread and butter... More

We were travelling from UK and following the busy sights of San Francisco this hotel was a really nice quiet place to visit next. Glen Ellen is a quaint little town. We agree with the other comments , the breakfast , rooms , pool and outside seating area are really good. The welcome was great and the happy hour was... More

We stayed at the Gaige house and everything was as advertised and our review is similar to others. It is a quaint, charming Inn with great service, wonderful breakfasts/happy hour and lots of character. We loved it and really enjoyed the ambiance. If, however, you are looking for major hotel chain ammenities this is probably not the place for you.... More

I have stayed twice at Gaige House and both visits were wonderful. Our previous stay was in the Woodside suite overlooking the creek - very beautiful. This visit we stayed in the main house overlooking the garden. It was quite like a tree house - there were lovely leafy trees at each of the four windows. The room was very... More

This place hits all the right notes. Everything on the grounds is lovely and tasteful. We stayed in the Zen Garden Suite which was insanely comfortable, luxurious, beautiful. The pool area was great and totally quiet despite the inn being full when we were there. We had a delicious breakfast and the location was perfect as we walked into town... More

My friend and I went for a girls' weekend to Sonoma and stayed at the Inn. The entire experience was wonderful. The inn has a wonderful staff, great ambience, and we were delighted with our stay. The staff is wonderful, the breakfast that was part of our hotel fee was amazing (every single dish was spectacular). The wine and cheese... More

Convenient location within walking distance to a handful of higly rated restaurants. Quiet town of Glen Ellen and you feel off the beaten path. Quick drive to Sonoma and points all around the valley. The Gaige House offers a variety of accommodations. I went with a friend and she stayed in a Deluxe King in the main house and I... More

My husband and I have been coming here for years whenever we need some quiet time together away from the kids. We've been particularly enchanted by the location, beauty, space, quiet and aesthetic of the zen suites. Clearly, Gaige House was a labor of love by someone with a high level of taste and luxury. On our last visit though,... More

This place was PERFECT, I would even use the term magical. They were so welcoming and when they found out it was our anniversary, upgraded us to the Creekside Zen Suite! The suite was quintessential romance with a breathtaking shower, bathtub, fireplace, and enclosed Zen outside balcony. They offered a delish (and healthy!) breakfast each morning and wine & cheese...

This is by far the most accommodating and beautiful inn I've stayed in. It far exceeded my expectations, and the deal we got on our room for two nights was incredibly affordable. We stayed in a deluxe king room in November 2013. The rooms were larger than expected clean and had comfy beds and large bathrooms. The staff was wonderful,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tucked into the Sonoma Valley hamlet of Glen Ellen, the Gaige House feels like a secret hideaway. Of course, it’s not really a secret; the Gaige House is regularly recommended in Michelin and other guides, and has been listed repeatedly in Condé Nast Traveler’s Gold List of the top hotels in the world. Gaige House is part of the prestigious Four Sisters Inns collection and is an elegant blend of vintage and contemporary architecture. The inn features 23 thoughtfully appointed guestrooms with a modern, Asian flair. The verdant, secluded setting along Calabaza's Creek includes an outdoor swimming pool and hot tub, and is accented with delightful surprises in hidden spots: a hammock shaded with ancient oaks, a miniature pagoda in a rock garden, a gurgling fountain. After a day of visiting nearby wineries, boutiques and art galleries, return to the Gaige House to indulge in luxurious spa services provided either in-room, or outdoors in a peaceful and private cabana. All guests enjoy a complimentary, full breakfast every morning, and an afternoon wine and hors d’oeuvres reception. ... more   less
