My wife and I were passing through and planned to stay one night before moving on the next day. We were amazed at the gorgeous property, then Brian met us at our car and walked us in under his umbrella in the rain before giving us our key and providing us with extensive information of the area. We were upgraded... More

We love the location and the property. Sitting on the back patio is lovely and very relaxing. The owners are always very accommodating as well. The breakfast is fantastic alternating between sweet one day and savory the next. We stay in a lot of B&B's and this one is a favorite. They have a sizable guest kitchen with lots of... More

My boyfriend and I planned an impromptu getaway to the Russian River area for a weekend, and I'm so glad we did -- and even happier we picked the Sonoma Orchid Inn to be our base. The inn had a lot of great offers (special off-season pricing, a wine tasting passport for free tastings at over 100 area wineries, etc.)... More

For the price I would choose another option next time. The owners are very nice and the food is good. However, the hot water took forever in our bathroom sink...over 5 minutes. The shower was super slow to drain (over 2 inches of water by the time I finished showering). Also, there was weak water pressure...our shower started out with... More

My spouse and I, along with another couple, spent the first week of November at Sonoma Orchard Inn. It was a perfect place to stay and go out on short day trips from there. Dana and Brian were perfect hosts; cooking wonderful breakfasts each morning, providing great advice, information and maps on where to go, and making dinner and winery... More

Had a wonderful 3 nights when we stayed here recently. We participated in Wine Road's "Food and Wine Affair", a 2-day fun filled event where you visit any number of the 100 wineries participating on Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 4pm. The Inn was a little further away to some of the participating wineries, but no big deal (it... More

We stayed here in October for 2 nights as a base for exploring the local wineries. It is a lovely B&B and it was so welcoming and cosy. We stayed in the main house and the room was large and the bathroom clean. The breakfasts in the morning were great and the pecan French toast was absolutely the highlight!!

My friend and I recently stayed at this Inn for two nights. Upon arrival, my friend had one of those, "I need a bathroom right now," kind of moments so I quickly parked the car so we could register. I was promptly told that I needed to park my car correctly in the empty parking lot. True, it wasn't parked... More
