Farmhouse Inn


In wine country, anyone can put some high thread-count sheets on the bed and charge a bundle. What rockets the inn to the top of Sonoma's hotels is the truly thoughtful service and attention to food and wine. We're talking tips from Sonoma's only master sommelier and a Michelin-starred menu filled with ingredients grown on the innkeeper's farm, not to mention "the best huevos rancheros of your life." And there's no end to the special touches: self-serve counters for bath salts, s'mores, and Italian sodas; spa ingredients from the garden; even private steam rooms. $350/$390; 18 rooms & suites;
