“A nourishing retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Farmhouse Inn. We stayed in one of the rooms in the new "barn" building. It was spacious with a huge luxurious bathroom that had heated floors and all the amenities. The complimentary soap and bath salts were put to good use. There was a nice patio but we didn't use it as the weather was a bit rainy. I do think the room was close to their water/septic pond with a slight waft of the smell when outside. We at at the restaurant for dinner and had a wonderful special meal. The breakfasts were almost equally as wonderful and the scone we had will not be long remembered.

Restaurant is very special. Had dinner there on two nights. Great service, great food, great wine selections. You will not go wrong here! Breakfast was also very good.

We stayed in an upstairs barn room and it was fantastic. Definitely stay in Barn and try to get upstairs.

Staff was very friendly and helped plan a couple of great winery tours.

It's a small hotel, the room wad very good but not amazing.

It's the service however which makes this worth 5 out of 5.

Even before I arrived the concierge team were very helpful. Every time we asked they had great recommendations.
S'mores in the evening great fun.

Special thanks to Zoe in the spa who sorted my aches and pains out.

Their winery partners all waived the tasting fees which saved us a decent amount and they were very good.

Breakfast was perhaps the best we had all trip.
The restaurant is good, but isn't open Tuesday or Wednesday.

Sure we will be back.

We always enjoy coming to the Farmhouse for a few days each year. For over five years we have appreciated the excellent and friendly concierge service to help us choose wineries, restaurants and places to walk. The accommodations are fantastic. I could like permanently in one of the Barn rooms -- they're spacious, comfortable and very attractive. The whole experience is soothing and sensual.

Room Tip: The Barn rooms are quiet and spacious. You feel like you're in the forest.

On our most recent trip to wine country, we stayed at the Farmhouse Inn. It was simply wonderful
and truly exceeded our expectations. The staff could not be more helpful and pleasant. The food was outstanding both during breakfast and the wine pairing dinner which was out of this world! The accommodations were well above the standards of the previous locations and reasonably priced. We loved the "country feel" of our room and the little gifts offered each night with the turndown service. Our every need was attended to without any complication or fuss. The concierge team made sure we truly experienced the best of the Russian River area. We will definitely return here and recommend the Farmhouse Inn to our friends!

Beautiful rooms, wonderful food & amazing service. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone. My husband & I just celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary there with a 4 night stay and we loved every minute of it. I can't wait to go back again some day!

This is really a great place for couples! One of the few you can still find in the area of this quality.

Since my first review, we've visited the Farmhouse two more time and stayed in the barn. Both times we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. On our second visit, the restaurant wasn't open but on our third it was. We decided to give it a second chance and had a wonderful veggie meal. Many of our fellow diners had the rabbit, a Farmhouse signature dish, and raved about good it was.

One of the major pluses of the Farmhouse is the pool. It is a regular pool with both deep and shallow ends (not one of those 3 foot jobs). This meant we could just float around without scrapping our feet on the bottom.

The staff is one of the best we've seen and provides first-rate service.

We'll be back.
