If I could give the Farmhouse 10 stars, I would! My new husband and I were fortunate enough to spend the first 4 days of our honeymoon at the Farmhouse, and we enjoyed every minute of it. When booking the room several months ago, the concierge (I believe it was Marilyn) helped me select a room that would best suit our needs. We decided to stay in room 16 which is located in the new barn addition, and I'm so glad we did. The room was nicely appointed with a large soaking tub, gas fireplace, steam shower and generous deck overlooking the woods. It was private, clean and spacious - everything we were looking for. The spa robes & slippers were a nice touch too.
The grounds were well maintained and very beautiful. The pool area was nice and relaxing, and the pool itself was heated which was nice since the region was experiencing cooler than average temperatures when we visited. The main office was cozy & clean, and the complimentary bath products were an added bonus. DVDs and books were available to be borrowed, although we never had time to make use of them. The Farmhouse is located on a busy street, but the location is excellent. We took a drive to the coast one morning and to the nearby Armstrong woods park in the afternoon. There are numerous wineries in the area, and the inn is located near the cities of Santa Rosa, Healdsburg and Forestville. There are many cute restaurants, shops and bars in the surrounding communities.
The staff was friendly and helpful during our entire stay, and provided us with great restaurant and winery recommendations. We spent two afternoons traveling to various wineries recommended by the Farmhouse, and we were treated very warmly by their staff members. Tastings were free when we mentioned we were staying at the Farmhouse, & we even received a complimentary bottle of wine from one of the wineries.
The food at the Farmhouse is top notch for both dinner and breakfast. The fresh fruit, muffins, scones, eggs, pancakes & french toast were a delicious way to start our morning, and the cookies and milk were a welcome treat at the end of the day. We partook in the complimentary Italian sodas and s'mores and they were delicious as well. We had dinner at the restaurant on Sunday evening and enjoyed the food and the personal service we received. It was expensive, but worth it. Try the rabbit - it's delicious!
Both my husband and I had massages during our stay, and the staff took extra time to explain various techniques we could try at home. Both therapists were friendly and professional.
Overall I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay at the Farmhouse. Thank you to all the staff members for making our honeymoon so pleasurable! We look forward to returning in the future.
