Sonoma County has long been regarded as a runner up to Napa, in large part thanks to a less-than-luxurious selection of lodgings. But Farmhouse Inn is poised to change all that. The place is family-run, friendly, and down-home, yet spares no expense in treating guests like visiting royalty. The valley-nestled inn has only 25 rooms, including eight early-20th-century cottages with dry saunas. Both the lavish spa and Michelin-starred restaurant are driven by a farm-to-table ethos: treatments and tasting menus alike feature organic ingredients grown on property by the resident gardener.
