Quaint inn with a Michelin-starred restaurant
Expensive room rates
Set in Forestville, California among the Sonoma vineyards and surrounded by gardens, the Farmhouse Inn is a quaint retreat. The inn's 25 rooms and suites feature varied amenities, but most include feather beds, flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi access and bathrooms with jetted tubs and steam showers. The property is also home to a spa with treatments that use ingredients harvested on-site, as well as a seasonal outdoor pool and a hot tub. The Michelin-starred restaurant at Farmhouse Inn is lauded for its tasty cuisine and excellent wine program. Many said dinner at the restaurant was the highlight of their stay (though note, you should book reservations several weeks in advance). And those with a sweet tooth can cap off their night with s'mores around the fire pit. While most enjoyed their stays, several noted that a vacation here will cost a pretty penny. As a member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts, Farmhouse Inn is part of the I Prefer rewards program, meaning members can earn points and redeem perks here.

Travel + Leisure


Of course, visitors don't just come for the luxurious accommodations. The Michelin-starred restaurant attracts its own following with such iconic dishes as Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit – a trio of bacon-wrapped loin, ribs, and leg confit.



And the new rooms, in the back of the six acre property with an outdoor terrace surrounded by groves are the kind that you never want to leave: decorated with chic, whimsical farm accent pieces, throws on the light wood fourposter bed created from wool from a neighbor's sheep, a fireplace, a large Carrera marble bathroom with a jetted tub.



A major renovation and expansion completed in 2014 resulted in a new spa, even lusher landscaping, and an increase in the room count, all without sacrificing the privacy and subdued glamour guests have come to expect.
