Description

Circa 1906. In an area known for its natural beauty, Sonoma Orchid Inn sits on more than two countryside acres in Guerneville, California. This historic 1906 Russian River farmhouse was recently restored and furnished with a stylish elegance. Relax in outdoor sitting areas or by the living room fireplace. Soak in the Jacuzzi hot tub under native oaks. A guest kitchen is available 24 hours and offers complimentary beverages and afternoon treats. Comfortable and eclectic guest bedrooms are on three levels of the main house and rooms in the cottage boast private entrances. Designated rooms are pet-friendly. Feel pampered and schedule an in-room massage. Be enticed by the seasonally inspired gourmet breakfast. Take a wine-tasting tour of local vineyards and plan some day trips to Northern California sites.

Romantic Interest

Sonoma Orchid Inn indulges you in comfort. Freshly baked treats are placed in the guest kitchen each afternoon. Have a soothing soak in the hot tub spa under the native oaks. Breath freely and fully. Sit without interruption inside or out, get toasty in front of the living room fireplace. Sleep in, as breakfast is served a 9 and businesses don't open until 11.
