Farmhouse Inn and Restaurant

Guests at luxurious Russian River Valley hotel and spa walk a few steps to Michelin-starred cuisine.

Exquisitely appointed rooms, a top-notch spa, and one of Sonoma County’s best restaurants 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.

Rooms toward the back of the property offer the most privacy. (Photo courtesy of the inn.)

Farmhouse Restaurant a Destination Itself

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. A destination itself, the restaurant perennially receives a Michelin star for its farm-to-table cuisine, varied wine list, and polished waitstaff.
