About

Applewood: An Enclave for Romance at the Heart of the Russian River Valley. This Boutique Wine Country Inn, with its 19 rooms and suites, a fine food restaurant, and a spa, is located 1 hour north of the Golden Gate Bridge in the heart of the Russian River Valley Pinot Noir growing region. Sheltered by towering redwoods and surrounded by fruit orchards and gardens, this romantic getaway offers adults a secluded and peaceful refuge to relax, rejuvenate and re-connect. The Restaurant at Applewood  has been awarded a Michelin star for 2011 & 2012. It is known for its Wine Country Cuisine inspired by the lush bounty of the Russian River Valley and accented with Mediterranean influences. Built in the style of a French country barn, the restaurant's menu is seasonal and locally sourced. Its wine program is Russian River-centric. The Spa at Applewood offers relaxed pampering in a tranquil setting. Whether it's a day visit or an appointment during your stay, the spa is a key ingredient for a perfect get away. The Gardens at Applewood grow organic fruits, herbs, and vegetables and together with its apiary and chicken coop, reflect Applewood's commitment to sustainability. The green apple in Applewood's logo is a symbol of the eco-consciousness apparent throughout the property. The use of solar energy for producing electricity and heating the pool, an in-house, aerated, composting system and many other green practices provide a canvas for the conservation of Applewood's beauty. Applewood is a sanctuary for tranquility and intimacy as well as a portal to world-class wineries, the mystical Russian River, the rugged and dramatic Northern California coastline, and the millenarian Armstrong Redwood Forest.

A stay at Applewood

4.2 on November 24, 2014

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Applewood, the setting was beautiful and we wished we had stayed a little longer. One thing, when we arrived we were a bit early for our check-in and the woman at the desk wasn't very friendly. She said we were too early gave us a wine map and basically kicked us out.


Great Anniversary Stay

4.6 on July 06, 2014

We stayed 4 nights the week of 4th of July for our 20th anniversary. Applewood was perfect place to be! EVERYONE was very nice and service oriented. Included breakfast was outstanding. We stayed in room 10, Castelina. Great room, very romantic, private sitting area & hot tub, 2headed shower, beautiful view out of the windows and gas fireplace! Many outdoor sitting areas around the property. We definitely will return !


Perfect Getaway

My two-night stay was excellent; my expectations were surpassed. The restaurant and the inn are each wonderful, and the staff were all cheerful and helpful. The restaurant had delicious, seasonal food that was beautifully presented in a warm dining room that had a fireplace and pretty garden views. My own room was a treat: a fireplace, jetted tub, private sitting deck, huge bathroom, and an insanely comfortable bed with luxurious linens. Lots of small details showed the innkeepers really care about their guests' comfort. The grounds were lovely, too, and a pleasure to stroll around in. I'll definitely be back, and hopefully will get a chance to try out the spa services when I do.

What an enjoyable stay. Everything from the room, to the restaurant, the staff, and the owners, Sylvia & Carlos made the stay wonderful. I felt more like a family member than a guest.

After a cold rainy visit to San Francisco, four days at the Applewood Inn was heaven for my husband and me. The setting, the food, the room and the hosts were all wonderful and welcoming.
