About

Tucked into the Sonoma Valley hamlet of Glen Ellen, the Gaige House feels like a secret hideaway. Of course, it’s not really a secret; the Gaige House is regularly recommended in Michelin and other guides, and has been listed repeatedly in Condé Nast Traveler’s Gold List of the top hotels in the world. An elegant blend of vintage and contemporary, the inn features 23 thoughtfully appointed guestrooms with a modern, Asian flair. The verdant, secluded setting along Calbaza Creek includes an outdoor swimming pool and hot tub, and is accented with delightful surprises in hidden spots: a hammock shaded with ancient oaks, a miniature pagoda in a rock garden, a gurgling fountain. After a day of visiting nearby wineries, boutiques and art galleries, return to the Gaige House to indulge in luxurious spa services provided either in-room, or outdoors in a peaceful and private cabana. All guests enjoy a complimentary, full breakfast every morning, and an evening wine and cheese reception. An excellent choice for a honeymoon or romantic Wine Country escape, the Gaige House is also ideal for small meetings and special events.

The Perfect Getaway

5 on August 21, 2015

This hotel is out a bit from the touristy stuff of Napa but in no way is that a bad thing. The accommodations are beautifully maintained and appointed. Breakfast is homey, simple but absolutely delicious and done with great care (bread baked on site, fresh ingredients). We will definitely be returning to the Gaige House on our future trips to wine country. If you had to pick just one local winery go to Chateau St. Jean and ask for Tim, he does the Chateau tastings and takes wine knowledge and service to the highest level. The absolute best.


Great Stay at the Gaige House

Recently returned from a great stay at the Gaige House for our anniversary. The suite was beautiful, grounds lovely and breakfast is delicious. Would highly recommend. Looking forward to returning soon.


Fantastic stay in wine country

Highly recommend the Zen suites. Expansive room with a gorgeous tub, privacy and a little piece of heaven. Staff at Gaige house is accommodating and helpful. Wine reception in the early evenings can get crowded but there are plenty of places to escape and retain privacy. Pool area is relaxing and the best part is there is a hammock near the creek behind the property. Restaurants in Glen Ellen are within walking distance.


Beautiful property in the stomping grounds of artist Tilden Daken

Our stay was perfect and serene. Walking distance to great restaurants, short drive to Jack London State park, not to mention many wonderful wineries. Relaxing to come "home" to the Gaige House.


Lovely spot !!!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Gaige House. A quiet sanctuary after a busy day of wine tasting!!!


lovely room but smelly

3.8 on May 12, 2015

The room was lovely, I didn't like being right next to the pool, a little noisy and not very private. The biggest complaint from both my husband and I was the smell. I not sure if it was the cleaning products trying to mask other odors but it was almost enough to ask for a refund and go someplace else. But being on vacation was about not having stress so it was easier to ignore than complain.


Zen rooms on the creek are quite special

We enjoyed our third time here. It is a great environment and all the staff members are very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts are excellent and the wine and cheese hour in the evening is quite well done. Some evenings local wineries offer tastings of their wine which serves as anice introduction for tastings during the rest of your stay. We will be back!

We got a great price for our suite and it was very private. Air conditioner was having trouble with dripping, but we felt that was only a minor issue. The special touches are amazing from wine and cheese tasting to homade cookies and breakfast. We definitely would consider a return visit.


Beautiful and Relaxing hide-a-way

We had a wonderful stay at the Gaige House this weekend. We went to Sonoma for a party and used it as an excuse to make a weekend trip out of SF. Ate dinner at the Glen Ellen Star which was walking distance and superb. You almost think you're hidden away in the mountains when staying at the Gaige House. It's so serene and peaceful. Quiet and empty during the day with plenty of privacy. The rooms were spacious, clean and charming. I definitely will return to the Gaige House next time I'm in Sonoma. I'm so glad we chose to stay here and would recommend to anyone. I heard they have a hotel in SF and Monterey so you can take advantage of the experience in other parts of CA too.


Wonderful stay!

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Gaige House. The room was beautiful! The staff was welcoming and kind. We especially enjoyed the homemade breakfast every morning. We also enjoyed the daily 5 pm wine and cheese. We had the opportunity to meet some other people and learn about their winery experiences. Thank you Gaige House, and I hope we can come back again soon. CG from New Orleans, LA
