#1 of 3 B&Bs / Inns in Glen Ellen
Certificate of Excellence
Tucked into the Sonoma Valley hamlet of Glen Ellen, the Gaige House + Ryokan feels like a secret hideaway. Of course, it's not really a secret; the Gaige House + Ryokan is regularly recommended in Michelin and other guides. Gaige House + Ryokan is part of the prestigious Four Sisters Inns collection and is an elegant blend of vintage and contemporary architecture. The verdant, secluded setting along Calabaza's Creek includes an outdoor swimming pool and hot tub. All guests enjoy complimentary breakfast buffet and afternoon wine and cheese tasting as well as refreshing green tea at check-in, house-baked matcha cookies, after-dinner sake alongside the port and sherry. The spa treatment menu includes new massages, with either lemongrass or lavender infusions. Guests staying in Gaige House + Ryokan’s Zen Suites discover additional enhancements found in classic ryokans, such as the use of yukata robes, geta and zori slippers.

High-end hotel with prices that match. Just know that there is a mandatory daily $25 resort fee that they say covers parking, breakfast and the wine & cheese tasting. You cannot avoid paying it and it's a practice that should be abolished. It's deceptive when you look at the rates and should be included in the stated daily rate.

Property's Favorite Review
This hotel/bed and breakfast far exceeded my expectations. I booked two rooms for a low-key weekend with three girlfriends. The staff was very friendly. The rooms were so peaceful with zen music playing and small patios to lay outside. The breakfast was wonderful as was the afternoon wine tasting. They had fresh baked cookies daily. Just sayin'. There is a pool and hot tub on this beautiful and relaxing property. This is absolutely the place to stay for a relaxing, low-key, and/or romantic weekend. Definitely not a loud party property though it's certainly fun with the wine tasting. Highly recommend. The cute nearby town also had two great restaurants within walking distance. The hotel was not too expensive when compared to other Sonoma area hotels.

Beautiful property. Walking distance to great restaurants. Zin suites are wonderfully relaxing. Excellent breakfast! Wine tasting in the afternoon. Cookies in the lobby and port at night. It’s a special place. We have returned several times.

We loved every minute of our 3 night stay at Gaige House. The hotel has a very tranquil atmosphere and the pool area is perfectly sized for the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made us feel very comfortable. We stayed in the Zen Garden Suite and the bathtub was a real highlight. The wine and cheese hour at 5pm was a lovely surprise and the breakfast provided the perfect start to the day. Glen Ellen is a great location to visit the surrounding area with both local wine tasting and Sonoma a short drive away - highly recommended.

Just a lovely place. Quiet, perfectly located, nice people. Our room was one of the japanese-styled suites, and it was fantastic; looked out on a little creek, amazingly peaceful. I can't opine on the rooms in the inn, haven't seen them. 5 pm wine and cheese is a highlight. Breakfast was fine: not a huge number of choices, but it's a small place, that's understandable. What there was was delicious. Pool is clean and quiet. One of the best things about it: after a day of wine touring, you can walk to three delicious restaurants in Glen Ellen for dinner.
