My husband and I chose Sonoma Orchid Inn for our first bed and breakfast experience, and lets just say Brian and Dana set the bar high. We found Sonoma Orchid Inn on the internet, with no personal recommendation. We were impressed with the website and we were never disappointed for the duration of our stay. There is no false advertising... More

My husband and I had a wonderful one night stay at this quaint B & B. It was so nice to be in a comfortable home on a cold, rainy California day. The owners are very kind and knowledgeable folks. They have put together an extensive portfolio of things to do, places to eat and more. They also have a... More

My wife and I had an excellent stay at the Orchid. Relaxing atmosphere and a great base to check all the wineries in the area. Brian and Dana know all the good places and are very knowlegable about the great restaurants of the area. We will definitely come back.

Me and my husband stayed in this B&B during our trip. This is our first B&B experience and I have to say I am not that impressed. yes the service is nice, hosts are friendily and helpful. But the room is very small, so is the bathroom. We stayed in one of the room below the den and at night... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. The food was incredible and the sheets were the most comfortable sheets I have ever slept on. The owners know what they are doing and go out of their way to make sure everyone enjoys their stay. The food was fresh and creative. We stayed in the Madrone cottage which was old, but very...

The Sonoma Orchid Inn (formerly Ridenhour Inn) is a quiet, stylish, comfortable, small inn for people who are looking for a place to come home to and relax after vineyard visits, kayaking on the Russian River, whale watching, antiquing, and various other activities. If you require a gym, a business center, and a restaurant and bar, this is not your... More

This Inn is on the main road into Guerneville, so our room was quite noisy, which I didn't expect. Take ear plugs and it will be fine. Room was very spacious and well furnished, very comfortable sofa and bed. Inn has all that you may need, fridge, microwave, drinks, snacks and as soon as you walk in you feel welcome.... More

My partner and myself stayed at the Sonoma Orchid Inn and we enjoyed it very much. The hosts Brian and Dana were very pleasant and a particular feature of our stay was breakfast, served "family style" at 9.00 each morning. The food wa delicious.

Spent six days here for the Vineman race. Breakfasts are truly amazing. "French toast Souffle", fresh egg quiche (they have 22 hens), local chicken apple sausage with fennel, plum jam from their plum tree. The owners treated me like a special guest and took wonderful care of me. They will take the time to talk about local wineries, restaurants, things... More
