This was our second visit to this unique and lovely country inn. Both visits were to celebrate special occasions (as many of the guests seemed to be doing as well), and it lived up to our fond memories from our first stay several years ago. The main Victorian house has a majestic appearance and a commanding view over the Dry Creek Valley vineyards from its position atop a knoll that is surrounded by mature trees and greenery, making this a very private place. The eight-acre site also includes the Carriage House, Schoolhouse Suites, and several other small buildings distributed around the orange grove and extensive vegetable and flower gardens. The main house and Carriage House date from the late 19th century, and while the accommodations have been nicely updated with the usual amenities, they retain much of the charm (and a few of the infirmities, e.g. creaky floors) of their age. Our Carriage House suite had a fireplace, and a spacious deck with a vineyard view, and was well-appointed and very clean. The hotel staff is friendly, helpful and unobtrusive.
The restaurant at Madrona Manor deserves a special mention, as it continues to offer a very high level of cuisine with impeccable service. The menu is seasonal and offers prix fixe choices of three, four or five courses. This is not an inexpensive dining option, but very fair value for the quality, presentation, service and exceptional ambience, and a perfect choice for a special occasion.
