Our one night stay was a delightful surprise. The owners are very gracious and accommodating. The inn is completely solar powered. The fruit served at breakfast are fresh from their garden. The chickens provide the fresh eggs daily for the scrumptious and hearty breakfast. R & R

Sonoma Orchid Inn is charming, comfortable and inspired. The owners have mastered the art of hospitality. We stayed two nights and both breakfasts were exquisite . . . Quiche made w eggs from their chickens and fresh fruit from their trees were some of my personal favorites. We loved all the attention to detail, the luxurious comfort of the room... More

Dana and Brian were wonderful hosts! Lots of information about the area and where the best tasting experiences were. It was easy to get to Jenner Beach, Anderson Woods, and Sonoma from the B&B. They even made us breakfast for our early departure! The only complaint would be the wifi didn't reach the sitting room in the Laurel Suite. Beyond... More

Although the owners are absolutely lovely people, for the price this B&B is a bit over rated. I expected much more after reading the reviews. My room was very dark and dated.The lamps were old fashioned and didn't do much to light the room. no full length mirror which was annoying as I was there to attend a wedding, the... More

We picked this place based on reviews and the location sort of central to any area we would travel to in Sonoma County. The Inn keepers , Brian and Dana were super nice, they had great recommendations for things to do, and the breakfasts were fantastic. If you have any dietary restrictions, just let them know ahead. The rooms, I... More

This B&B is one of the best in the country without question! The service that owners Dana and Brian provide is second to none and rivals that of a 5 star resort. My now fiancé and I stayed at the Sonoma Orchid Inn for a week not to long ago and loved it from the minute we arrived late the... More

If you want to find a secret in the woods this is it... Dana and Brian who run and also own this little gem get one of those 100% thumbs up. From the rooms to the grounds and the killer breakfasts they prepare you can't go wrong. It's the hang your BS up outside and sit back and enjoy the... More

I love this place! Brian and Dana made us feel at home from the moment we arrived until we left. We were there May 16 to 18. Our room was super clean, comfortable and roomy. Some of the highlights for me were the homemade cookies each afternoon, the guest kitchenette available 24 hours (in case you needed a late night... More

Touring from the UK, Sonoma Valley was our last stop after 2 weeks of driving and our return long haul flight. Life served us up a treat. Next door to a wine estate specialising in champagne(!), 40 minute drive from the coast - beware of the BIRDS!. The Inn just 5 minutes for Armstrong Woods - a good place to... More

We had a great one-night stay at the Inn. We were warmly greeted by Dana upon arrival and given fantastic winery and restaurant recommendations. The tree-lined surroundings and outdoor jacuzzi make for a peaceful and relaxing retreat. The Wisteria Room is small but fine even for a couple for a short stay, especially because you can hang out in the... More
