About

Tucked into the Sonoma Valley hamlet of Glen Ellen, Gaige House + Ryokan feels like a secret hideaway. Of course, it’s not really a secret; Gaige House + Ryokan 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. All guests enjoy complimentary breakfast buffet and afternoon wine and cheese tasting as well as refreshing green tea at check-in, house-baked matcha cookies, after-dinner sake alongside the port and sherry, and use of the inn’s outdoor meditation deck, sun deck and moon deck. The spa treatment menu has been expanded to include new massages, with either lemongrass or lavender infusions. Guests staying in Gaige House + Ryokan’s Zen Suites discover additional enhancements found in classic ryokans, such as the use of yukata robes, geta and zori slippers, in-suite sake, in-suite Japanese cast iron tea service, mochi ice cream, and Bose sound systems with Zen-influenced CD music. Zen Suites also offer deep granite Japanese soaking tubs and private rock gardens.

Gaige house review

What a fabulous find. The entire staff was very friendly and courteous and extremely helpful. From directions to recommendations on restaurants or local vineyards they were right on the mark every time. Don't miss the chance to stay here if you are anywhere in the area.

Gaige House was lovely. We stayed at the Creekside Suite, and it was very pretty, well maintained, and spacious. The whole property is beautiful, and the staff was welcoming and helpful. Highly recommend!

The Gaige House was the perfect place for our anniversary celebration with its fresh baked cookies, generous wine and cheese tasting, lovely pool and spa, easy walk to restaurants, and relaxing jacuzzi tub in a beautifully appointed suite.

The best B/B in the wine country. Stayed there 6 times and would not stay anywhere else. Friendly employees and most helpful in setting up tastings. Ruth and Rachael always makes our stay better than the time before.

My husband and I stayed at the Gaige House for his Birthday. This is a gem in the Sonoma wine country away from all the hustle and crowds. The town of Glen Ellen is charming with delightful restaurants. The people are very friendly! Wineries just a stones throw from the Gaige House. Highly Recommend!

Gaige House, a lovely property tucked away in a tiny hamlet with a warm, gracious and accommodating staff. Delectable breakfasts, cookies, cheeses. Asian antiques. Deep tubs. Sleep-inducing bed. Can't wait to return.

Everything about it was great. The suite was large, the cheese and wine in the evening was spectacular, and the breakfast was very tasty. We met some wonderful people, which was a bonus.
