Friends and I have stayed at the Sonoma Orchid Inn several times for Vineman and we love it! Great food, nice people, friendly and accommodating services, beautiful surroundings, next to Korbel winery (champagne-who could ask for more!). You can ride right to the start a few short miles as a race warm-up and avoid "nervous Ned" pre-race am travelers and... More

Dana thoughtfully and expertly created two wonderful breakfasts during our two-night stay: a breakfast bread pudding and an asaparagus-gruyere quiche. Both were fantastic! He also made truly delicious cookies that were out for the guests to have at any time. Brian was proactive and lovely about trying to help us plan our weekend, offering menus and advice about restaurants. Finally,... More

Wonderful place for our annual knitting retreat. Brian and Dana could not be more accommodating. The breakfasts were delicious and decadent. The guest kitchen was convenient for me as I'm an early riser and I could make coffee for myself before the sun came up. I stayed in the Madrone room which is large and comfortable. I love the king... More

Stayed for a weekend knitting retreat with 17 friends. The Inn was very nicely appointed and comfortable. We stayed in the Oak room and it was very clean and had plenty of room to relax. It was really a plus that they have a guest kitchen with a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. There are dishes, silverware and glassware for... More

My plan was to come on Friday and knit with my friends until Sunday. Brian and Dana made us all so comfortable. There were 17 of us and we didn't feel cramped at all. It gave me a great feeling of camaraderie with my fellow knitters. My room, the Oak room, was very comfortable. When I needed a break I'd... More

I just had a most enjoyable weekend at the Sonoma Orchid Inn! The location couldn't be better: just next door to the Korbel winery and Deli (try their tri-tip sandwiches), minutes from the lovely Armstrong Woods, and surrounded by top rated restaurants and wineries! The Inn owners are so welcoming, knowledgeable of the area, and prepare the most delicious breakfasts!... More

The owners, Brian and Dana, were excellent hosts with intimate knowledge of Sonoma. We stayed for a weekend in the Madrone room, and greatly enjoyed it. Brain and Dana cooked delightful breakfasts with fresh ingredients straight from their garden and chicken coop, and the Inn's common areas had everything we needed for a comfortable and enjoyable weekend (e.g. NYT, complimentary...

Our stay was an absolute dream come true. The accommodations were as warm as could be in this charming farmhouse in Guerneville. I just happened to stumble upon their listing, and it turned into the perfect romantic getaway. The innkeepers were incredibly kind and welcoming, with every aspect of our stay meticulously cared for. They were extremely knowledgeable about the... More

Perfect choice for a wine country getaway. An adorable farmhouse just minutes from hiking in the beautiful redwood forests or the Pacific Ocean. Surrounded by vineyards and wineries. Dana and Brian are so nice and helpful and the family style breakfasts were wonderful. My husband and I stayed in the Acorn cottage which was lovely and so comfortable. We highly... More
