Guests at luxurious Russian River Valley hotel and spa walk a few steps to Michelin-starred cuisine.
Exquisitely appointed rooms and a top-notch spa make the Farmhouse Inn and Restaurant a superb choice for travelers seeking luxurious rusticity and especially romance. The Forestville inn’s 6-acre wooded site sits in semi-seclusion across from prime Russian River Valley vineyards—several dozen wineries, including Joseph Jewell and Martinelli, lie within a 20-minute drive, as do the tall trees and shade of Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve.
Suites, Cottages, Spa, Restaurants
Accommodations range from barnlike suites with forest views to cottages with fireplaces. Among the treatments at the self-contained spa are one for couples and another involving basalt stones and gemstones. The two dining options include the dinner-only Farmhouse Inn Restaurant and the more casual Farmstand.
