Our stay at the Sonoma Orchid Inn was everything we hoped it would be and more! Our hosts Dana and Brian and their adorable dogs and cats made our trip so enjoyable we didn't want to go home! The grounds were lovely, Dana's cooking was amazing, the rooms were cozy and we felt at home from the second we arrived.... More

INNKEEPER’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2015

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

My husband and I are always pleased when we can find a quaint B&B that will allow our black lab to stay with us. In this case, the dog friendly rooms are located in the basement. That was okay with us. The room was small. But, it had everything we needed.I thought that the sheets were especially comfortable. It turns... More

This is our second time visiting this incredible charming and very friendly Inn. The sense of coziness and relaxation is everywhere in this beautifully decorated place. So conveniently located and gourmet breakfast everyday. We will be back here for sure. Thanks Brian and Dana for such wonderful work.

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...

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!
