The Sonoma Orchid Inn is located in what is pretty much the heart of Sonoma wine country. The hosts are SUPER knowledgeable and super helpful about giving you whatever information you need to enjoy your stay in the area. That being said, there are some pretty significant issues with this place (some that can be changed, others that can't). The...

My husband and I decided to visit wine country for our 25th anniversary. My husband likes vacations where he stays in one place in very comfortable surroundings for the duration and I like ones with lots of stuff to do. Orchid Inn had both. It is an old victorian house with an additional building with a few more rooms. We...

This was the inaugural visit for three couples and we totally enjoyed our stay. The location is great, an hour from SF, and the accommodations and considerate service are excellent. The Inn consists of a guesthouse, dining and gathering areas with charming decor and an additional collection of guest rooms in a separate cottage. We were greeted warmly by Brian...

Such an amazing B&B. Beautiful rooms, in a quiet and absolutely lovely location - perfect for a relaxing getaway, which is exactly what we'd been looking for. Brian and Dana were wonderful hosts - they seem to have thought of everything guests would want, including providing a spacious living room for reading/relaxing in the evening (and a well-stocked bookcase!), freshly-baked...

A friend and I were away on a long weekend to visit friends and family. We wanted to stay some place quiet in between, where we could just relax. The Sonoma Orchid Inn is such a place. The location is fabulous for hiking in the woods, visiting wineries, wonderful dining, and just relaxing. The rooms are clean and the bed...

Great B&B with two excellent hosts. Our room was comfortable and had AC even though it was not really hot while we were there. Outstanding breakfast served in a family style allowing you to relax and get to know the other guests. If anything the outside grounds could use some attention and perhaps some flowers etc however the trees and...

We had a wonderful time at this b&b. The breakfast was fabulous, and the owners were very informative regarding the area in terms of what to see and do as well as where to eat. Hot tub was fun too. Only negative was some traffic noise. Great place to stay!

We visited in August and had a wonderful time staying in this B&B. Brian and Dana were great hosts that offered a warm welcome, amazing breakfast, and helpful tips for activities and dining. The rooms were nice and quiet - with access to common areas, a kitchenette, games, books, etc. The location was very convenient to drive into Guerneville and...

We visited July 22-26 and had a fabulous time. Brian and Dana were absolutely wonderful. Breakfast was not to be missed for sure! Great cooking :). The room we had was the Hawthorne and it was spacious and very comfortable. It really felt like home away from home.

We spent two nights in this B&B because we wanted to tour some of the wineries in Russian River Valley. Dana and Brian were super hosts. Our room was on the second floor and Dana carried two heavy suitcases up to our room. Breakfast both mornings was outstanding. The first morning was an oatmeal souffle that was light, fluffy and...
