Escape into the country where the redwoods rise, the days are sun drenched and the Pacific nights are brisk and cool on our two plus acres of hilltop meadow. Local vineyards yield premier Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, the nearby coast beckons, the river shimmers, and Korbel’s vineyards surround to the west and north. Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley is a vacation wonderland filled with wine, canoeing, hiking, music, redwoods and the Pacific coast.

We stayed three nights. Room was nice. The food was amazing. Dana and Brian were friendly, pleasant, very knowledgeable about the area, and the place was so very comfortable ... We would stay again, in a heartbeat when in the area...

Our downstairs room was very clean. While there was a bit of a humidity smell, it did detract significantly. The place is quiet, which we appreciated after our intersection-side stay in Santa Rosa. The owners are nice and very helpful! We arrived with some ideas of what we wanted to do, and changed things around based on their great local guidance and information. A few things we planned to do were swapped out for better ones, and a few things we had previously ruled out were put back into our 4-day 3-night stay, all to great satisfaction. We got the impression the owners truly cared about our enjoyment of vacation. It was a great stay and when in the area we would definitely stay here again!

The rooms are spacious and and very comfortable (we stayed in the Hawthorn room). Breakfast was delicious and served family style, which allowed us to meet the other kind guests staying there. The owners were very helpful in making recommendations for nearby restaurants and sightseeing opportunities. We would definitely stay here again!

I loved my time at Sonoma Orchid Inn. The owners were warm and welcoming. The rooms (oak and Maple) were the upper level of the Farmhouse and were perfect for my group. Comfortable and clean. Breakfast was amazing. We are looking forward to staying there again next year!

Excellent service and knowledgeable owners make staying at the Orchid Inn a delight. Brian and Dana were never short of recommendations and a funny story that were always spot on and very entertaining. The house itself is exquisite and sipping wine on the veranda while watching the humming birds feed will be one of my enduring memories of my time there.

The Sonoma Orchid in is truly one of the best spots in the Russian River area. The house itself has such a special history and the current decor is a perfect mix of the traditional with touches of modern. We reveled in the jacuzzi with visions of stars and were treated to none other than a customized omelette from Chickens on the property, with seasonal veggies and fruit. They took such great care of us. On top of everything, the owners allowed me use of their personal computer to send that one important work email that had to be sent. I still advise leaving your laptop behind at home in order to truly sink into the fullest indulgent experience here at the Sonoma Orchid Inn. Carolee
