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.

I frequently travel to Glen Ellen in Sonoma County for a writing project and stay at the Gaige House. It is a beautiful spot, a former residence with additions and lovely surrounding garden along a creek. The suites in particular are special - private, sizable, looking out to leafy patios, fireplace and distinctive baths - usually with a soaking tub!. The morning breakfast - included as part of the nightly bill - is a treat to look forward to - much more than a continental croissant and coffee! If anything, over the 7 or 8 years I have been coming here - service and care of the property have gotten even better.

The Gaige house is a warm and engaging property. Our room was very comfortable and inviting. The fireplace was outstanding, the bathroom was functional and the overall room was excellent

We loved our room and the social wine hour at the Gauge House. We enjoyed the cozyness of the room.


We stayed there during Christmas as not enough room at my parents house. This was our third visit and we love the Gaige house. It is a little bit of heaven for us and very relaxing and convenient. The breakfast was fabulous

Should have been better

Gauge House is a lovely facility but needs to pay,attention to details expected at this price point. Scratchy towels, cobwebs and gulp children are not what one expects at an Inn that bills itself,as a retreat. They can do better.


Great stay in Sonoma

Small inn but the little details from the decor to the freshly baked cookies and wine and cheese were amazing. Loved the layout of the room and how it felt like a cozy upscale room. Will definitely come back!


Great off-season stay

We love coming here during the offseason. The rates are unbeatable. Stay in room 17 if you can afford it:). Great breakfasts!


Good Location/Mixed Bag

At first glance our room looked nice but it had some maintenance issues: Frayed rug edges, pealing paint around skylight, holes in bed sheets, window shade pull strings were missing hardware, grout missing in the wet bar area. Not quite what we expected for the price of the unit. We did report the issues and they were very apologetic and took $100 off the bill. Our unit was not in the main building and was in the building by the pool which appears to be older than other units on the site. Nice staff and the breakfast was great! I'm sure they will correct the issues at some point.


Great Glen Ellen B & B

Lovely suites with garden atriums. We loved the peaceful setting but so close to dining and wine tasting. Our third visit but we can't wait To return!


Very romantic!

Absolutely loved the Gaige house. The Zen rooms with fireplace are definitely worth it! Great staff and breakfast, too.
