We had a wonderful two-night stay in the Spruce Room of this lovely vintage 1906 B&B. Our room had a comfortable queen bed with sheets to die for. A separate bathroom with tub and shower were very nice. The Inn Keepers provided excellent recommendations on visits to Korbell Winery and the Armstrong Redwood State Park (do not miss this!). The...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2015

We love the location and the property. Sitting on the back patio is lovely and very relaxing. The owners are always very accommodating as well. The breakfast is fantastic alternating between sweet one day and savory the next. We stay in a lot of B&B's and this one is a favorite. They have a sizable guest kitchen with lots of... More

Very cute inn located just outside the town of Guerneville, right next to the Korbel winery. Dan and Brian were just terrific! Couldn't have asked for nicer hosts. And, Breakfast in the morning was great! The main building of the property is old, a bit creaky, but charming and nicely decorated. Recommend!

Dana and Brian made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. Every morning we enjoyed wonderfully unique and delicious breakfasts prepared by Dana, and Brian's recommendations for what to do and see in the area were very helpful. Our long weekend in Guerneville was the perfect holiday getaway and the Sonoma Orchid Inn was everything we needed... More

We choose Sonoma Orchid Inn from Tripadvisor reviews. Everyone nailed it! The location of the inn is central to all of the attractions of Sonoma Valley and only 25 minutes to the coast. The room was just right for us (Acorn). We had everything we needed including a large shower. The room decor is similar to my childhood (55yo) which... More

You two are so sweet. We really enjoyed hosting you and getting to taste that 12 year old brandy. It was such a treat just to get to sit and chat with you and the other couples. Thank you so much for such a nice review. More

We visited Bodega Bay and the wine country without making reservations for lodging (this is in March!) and found every accommodation booked. After making frantic phone calls from the Visitor's Center we by chance found ourselves at Sonoma Orchid Inn in Guerneville. What a wonderful surprise. Both of us are former owners of B&Bs and we know what makes a... More

What a delightful place to stay! My husband and I spent four nights at this inn and couldn't be more pleased with everything: From the very convenient location to the great hospitality of our hosts. Our room was so comfortable, bed, linens, etc. Everything at breakfast was home made; Including the jam made from their plum trees. Quiche, oatmeal soufflé,... More
