A beautiful property that was impeccably clean with outstanding customer service! We were three couples & all of our rooms were unique in their own way. My husband & I had the Creekside Zen suite which we absolutely loved....so enchanting & romantic! I cannot say enough good things about the breakfast also...will definitely be going back to the Gaige House!!!

Room Tip: Spend a little more & stay in one of the zen suites...just lovely!

First, the staff and the ambiance were superb. Breakfast 5*. Wine & cheese 5*. We learned so much from our fellow guests.

Bathroom was wonderful.
Bed super comfortable, but a bit too high.
Only one bed side lamp, so one guest unable to read on other side of bed.
No desk.....could be added next to bed on outside wall....move the existing chest (which is way too low for the bed) to the area to left of fireplace. Coffee service could be placed there so there would be space for incidentals on the bedside table. We had to put it in the closet to make the chest top usable.
Huge black chair could be eliminated as it is not an easy chair to use for putting on shoes or lounging. A comfy desk chair would suffice.
VERY DARK room! Perhaps a mirror on the far wall would bring in more light. (The Taj Mahal photo was not indicative of the Far Eastern influence you have so beautifully created elsewhere.)

This is a great place to stay, especially for couples as a relaxing retreat. The grounds are beautiful even though small and the rooms are beautiful. Breakfast every morning is delicious and the home baked cookies available everyday are great. Really enjoyed our stay.

Great little inn, staff were very helpful with organizing wine tastings and dinners. Good proximity to Sonoma, a little far from St. Helena but there are local restaurants in walking distance. Very quiet and relaxing - good for couples, though not ideal for families (not a lot of amenities)

We had heard from friends about the Gaige House, and we got a last minute room - Dana was on the front desk and she was wonderful! The rooms are great and the staff awesome. They have a fantastic breakfast and serve homemade cookies with excellent coffee thoughout the day.

We are definitely going back!

We had a wonderful stay at the Gaige House. The staff could not have been better - always pleasant and helpful. A very nice selection of food at breakfast and Happy Hour was great to visit with the other guests from all over the country and the world. We shared our daily adventures and experiences. We also enjoyed the restaurants that were close enough to walk to in the evening for dinner. The landscaping was beautifully maintained. We enjoyed our visit at the Gaige House so much that we will be back.

We had a late check-in after 9pm as I was picking up my mate from San Francisco Airport at 8pm.

I called Rachel on the day we come, and she was very helpful to explain to me the late-check in procedures. The instruction was very clear and I had no trouble finding my home at all.

Overall experience was great.
