This Russian River Valley resort is famed for its Michelin-starred restaurant, Farmhouse, which attracts an international following of farm-to-table foodies. Inside a restored 1873 weatherboard farmhouse, executive chef Steve Litke creates dishes made from picked-at-their-peak produce from Sonoma’s agricultural bounty.
But the Farmhouse Inn offers much more than fine dining: This resort checks all the boxes for a luxury getaway. Twenty-five elegant rooms, including eight cottages with dry saunas, are gussied up in woodsy-chic style with white linen furniture, freshly cut flowers, private patios, and two-way gas fireplaces that warm indoor and outdoor spaces. The concierge-to-guest ratio is one to five, so your every whim will be catered to. (Ask your personal sommelier to stock your in-room fridge to suit your palate.) The inn’s Sonoma connections are strong—Farmhouse is owned by fifth-generation members of the Bartolomei winemaking family—so you’ll be welcomed like a VIP at 23 partner wineries. Need a driver for a wine-tasting excursion? Send a text and a driver will pick you up in a Tesla.
If you’d rather not leave the property, that’s completely understandable. Choose from an array of complimentary artisan soaps at the front office, then luxuriate in your room’s jetted tub, or melt away your cares in your steam shower or sauna. Make an appointment at the full-service Spa at Farmhouse, which offers a range of organic treatments using herbs, honey, and apples harvested on the six-acre property. Feeling weary? Get a micro-current eye lift, then take a biotic nap, which simulates four hours of sleep in 30 minutes.
Once you’re refreshed, go for a dip in the heated pool or meander through the inn’s flower-covered grounds. In the evening, feel free to linger by the fire pits while you roast dark chocolate s’mores, but don’t overdo it. Save room for what might be the world’s best chocolate-chip cookies, delivered to your room at turndown.
