Very good staff--friendly and accommodating. Excellent wine selection and an outstanding menue and chef. Rooms are bright and clean. Complimentary breakfast is simply over the top! Our room had a sauna and spacious bathroom.Would return without hesitation.

The Farmhouse isn't cheap, but the experience makes it all worthwhile. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, the restaurant spectacular, and the rooms and grounds are clean and inviting and charming. We loved everything about our stay and would definitely go back soon. Their attention to detail is impeccable, all the way down to a specially printed dinner menu... More

Thanks for taking the time to post a review! You two were great fun- I really do hope you buy that property you're looking at! You'll make great neighbors, but we will miss you as guests. But, there's always the spa and restaurant... See you soon, Catherine More

I am just getting around to reviewing our stay from last summer. This was our first adults-only vacation as we have a (now 3 year old) toddler. We had the fortune of staying for 5 nights in one of the main house upstairs rooms. The room was beautiful with an incredible huge spa tub that we used every day. Everyday... More

Thanks for taking the time to review us! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay- and do hope you will come back soon. The landscape is complete (our big, new persimmon is just groaning with fruit), the barn's been a hit and we're just completing a big renovation/upgrade on our spa facility- don't worry, same therapists!

The restaurant here is fantastic - first class. Unfortunately the hotel lets it down. The service is almost non existent, no-one showed us to our room or helped us with our bags despite having to walk up a flight of stairs and struggle with the locks on the rooms. A phone call to reception to ask about internet access resulted... More

Hmmm. This was one of those unfortunate bad fit situations. We really tried, but the group just wasn't where they should have been. They were parents with adult children traveling from England- and they only stayed with us one night. The kids made the reservation and the parents were unhappy from minute one. They were very quiet and removed, and... More

The Farmhouse was worth visiting...but for the price of the room we won't go back. I think spending over $650.00 for a room in a barn is a bit steep.

This is a wonderful inn with a fabulous restaurant. It is located in the country near Healdburg, a small town with many great shops and restaurants. There are beautiful roads all around winding through vineyards and pastures. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. The Armstrong Redwoods are a 20 minute drive north, and my husband and I took a 3mile hike... More

Thanks. Can't wait to have you back! I still think you should come for a holiday get away- we have those amazing crafts, winemaker events, get togethers, planned that I think you'd love. But if not, I'll send pictures and a spring visit is soon enough! Take care, Catherine More

Wonderful bed & breakfast located in the heart of the Russian River Valley. Amazing breakfast served in the morning. Nice pool, fabulous spa. Enjoyed a couples massage. Stayed in cottage #2. Cute, pottery barn feel. Nice large tub & fireplace. Super comfortable beds!! Luxurious linens too. Cottage #1 is closest to river road, so there would be road noise. A... More

Yeah, we know River Rd. is a bit of a presence on the property. But, the upside is that it makes us so incredibly close to everything. And since we've totally insulated the front cottage (the one that did get some noise inside), if you're in your room it's very quiet. We've also added some new landscape for more privacy... More

The Farmhouse Inn is the perfect Sonoma retreat - located in the center of beautiful Russian River Valley, yet with an "off the beaten winery path" aura – this is definitely not Napa Valley. Owners Catherine and Joe Bartolomei are the ideal hosts, mingling with guests at breakfast and offering their connections to secure reserve tastings with local winemakers. The... More
