Near the hustle and bustle of Sonoma County’s wineries, this 25-room inn provides an intimate hideaway. Head to the Wellness Barn with your companion for guided forest bathing sessions ($200 for two), private yoga instruction ($200 for two) and side-by-side massages (starting at $215 a person for 60 minutes). If you’re feeling playful, wander over to the courtyard for a game of croquet. You can go for a hike together behind the inn, bike around the area, or try kayaking or canoeing on the nearby Russian River. Later, grab a couple of roasting forks and homemade vanilla marshmallows and indulge in free s’mores and conversation by a fire pit.
You’re in wine country, of course, and the concierge can arrange wine-tasting itineraries with the inn’s partners. Or stay put and participate in the free educational wine tastings that take place in the evenings. At the inn’s Farmhouse Restaurant, a fireplace and candlelight set the mood to linger over tasting menus and wine pairings with seasonal, locally sourced ingredients. And if you want to pull out all the stops, a six-course Valentine’s Day tasting menu costs $300 a person (wine pairings are an additional $150 a person).
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are available at Farmstand, the inn’s all-day restaurant, which also serves comforting farm-to-table dishes — such as wood-fired pizzas, salads and desserts — poolside or, if you prefer, in your suite. All of the rooms are serene, with down comforters, organic beauty products made in Sonoma, complimentary snacks and refrigerators (at night expect milk in your fridge and homemade, gluten-free, triple chocolate chip cookies at your bedside). For privacy and space, try a barn suite with double-sided fireplaces, or the recently remodeled cottages with gas fireplaces, soaking tubs and heated floors. Prices from $528 a night.
