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.
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.
