“Very Nice but a bit dated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

The hotel property is very nice. However, the Inn is a bit dated. We arrived around 8 pm and the check in was very easy. No bell staff was available so had to drag our luggage in the dark to find the building where our room was located. If you have not been to the Inn before, it is difficult to see the building numbers at night. We were on the second floor and there are no elevators so we had to drag our luggage up the stairs. We stayed 4 nights and did enjoy the room and view of the vineyards. Breakfast was wonderful, we ate at the restaurant twice . The food was delicious and the service was excellent. There is a very small fitness center with 2 treadmills, an elliptical and some hand weights. The king size bed was comfortable and the room was spacious. I would stay there again, but only on the first floor.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the first floor with a view of the vineyard.

Thank you for your kind words. The good news about the decor is it's in the works for this coming winter. We of course hope you'll come visit us again and by then should see a fresher look in the rooms. Sue

My wife and I just returned from a 5 night stay at Vintners Inn. We were in the area to visit family.
The staff was friendly and welcoming. The food was outstanding. We ate breakfast there daily and dinner once. The jaccuzzi was a great respite. The beds were most comfortable and the AC
kept us cool in 100 degree heat. I can think of nothing at all to complain about, which is saying something for me. I highly reccomend this inn to anybody looking for a getaway or a home base to visit the area

How nice of you, thank you for your very kind words. Have I mentioned before that we have the best guests in Sonoma Wine Country?! Sue

We planned a wedding elopement to Sonoma and based on the reviews picked the Vintner's for our stay and ceremony. We could not have been happier. The property was beautiful, the staff was fantastic and the food at the John Ash was top notch. Deanette did an outstanding job of helping us make arrangements for our ceremony and coordinated everything onsite for us. We cannot say enough about the staff who were sincere and attentive and very accommodating. Obviously for something special as a wedding, the location and grounds are very important, Vintner's hits a home run.

If you have a choice, choose the pavilion for your ceremony, it's more picturesque then the gazebo but you can't go wrong with either. After our ceremony, Deanette had arranged a cake and champagne in the fireside room which was very nice and then we had dinner at John Ash.

We had plenty of great wine and food during our stay and I would rate the dinner and service at John Ash as one of the best. Don't be fooled by the "quiet and cozy" villas, the bar can get crowded and a reservation for John Ash is probably a good idea.

I disagree with a previous review on the quality of the room, ours was very nice and spacious, plenty of room and nicely appointed. Each patio is more private then what I expected it to be. Our room was in the 300 villa and faced the back corner and vineyard. Coffee bars outside the rooms in each villa lobby is a nice touch. The breakfast in the cafe is fantastic. We stayed in a first floor room and given the wedding we probably spent more time in the room the first evening and the second day given the fact the ceremony was onsite and we did not notice any excessive noise or issues, we thought the place was quiet and relaxing. We didn't use it but the fireplace in the room was a nice touch. We are both seasoned travelers for both business and pleasure and the Vintners is easily worth the price and should be considered upscale lodgings.

We spent a day in the Calistoga area, getting there was a snap and we really enjoyed Healdsburg which was a quick 10 minutes down the freeway.

This place was fantastic! The location only has 40-somethings rooms, all ample and beautifully kept. The pictures just don't do it justice. The resort is set in a breathtakingly beautiful garden and the staff is beyond helpful.

We had a small balcony overlooking the center court that was perfect for enjoying room service at breakfast. We also received complimentary bottle of wine and tasty cookies with our turn down service.

We visited the restaurant on site for dinner, John Ash & Co., and it was delicious and elegant.

Overall, no complaints and we will definitely be visiting again!

This was our first time at the Vintner's Inn and I was quite happy with the stay. The bed alone was enough to return to this beautifully well kept property. We enjoyed a stroll around the property, a soak in the hot tub (no pool here) and dinner at John Ash, which was a delicious meal with excellent presentation. The rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable, slightly outdated, but not enough to leave a negative comment. There is not much to do in the area but downtown Healsburgh is near with great resturants and shopping. After a long day of traveling this was the perfect place to refresh ourselves and and enjoy some relaxation! I'd recommend driving up North and staying here for a night or two if you plan on traveling to the bigger wine areas such as Napa after.

Thank you for an almost perfect review. I'm so sorry we didn't offer the services of one of our bellmen to take your luggage to your room. We do try to advise everyone when they book that we don't have elevators. Our mistake and apologies to you if we overlooked that. Hopefully you'll come see us again and if we forget to offer you a bellman, don't hesitate to ask for assistance. Tipping is never required. Sue

Our first but not our last stay at this wonderful Inn. As part of Ferrari Cerrano winery it offers luxurious accommodations and a wonderful on-site restaurant. The full menu had outstanding and delicious selections. The staff is friendly and efficient in a great wine country location that's central to many local wineries and to Santa Rosa which also has a great assortment of great local restaurants.

Stay and the Vintners Inn, it won;'t disappoint.
