As much as I love sharing with you guys some of the greatest places to go to, to stay at, and enjoy, this place is one I don’t want to share with you. Of course it is for the absolute most selfish reasons — I want to still be able to book a room at the Farmhouse Inn. I fear that after the end of this post it won’t be the case.

Heard of Russian River Valley? Maybe or maybe not, but you’ve heard of Healdsburg so let’s use that as a good point of reference. About 20 minutes west of Healdsburg into the enticing redwood-lined Russian River Valley lies a boutique “inn” just waiting to be indulged in. Farmhouse Inn is a 25 room playground with an enchanting property that will sweep you off your feet.
When you first come upon the inn, you’re greeted with the biggest smile and a glass of wine — welcome to wine country. As you’re shown to your room, you start to wind through the multiple farmhouses and you get a few glimpses of heaven. You walk by a sun-ladened pool deck, you pass by the warm, white barn that is the spa, and you get a peak at the elegantly placed gardens. Then there is your room. You’ve booked the King Deluxe and you immediately know why you did. The open white room invites you in to stay a while.
With rustic luxury as the tones for the suite, the features like a walk-in closet, a marble bathroom featuring a steam shower, and a patio with an indoor/outdoor fireplace make it the perfect place to settle in. (Admittedly, I stayed in the room for the first few hours as I couldn’t get enough of it). The suite has these feather beds to die for, white walls, and touches of wood to fit right into it’s redwood setting.
On the property lies a few amenities unique to the Farmhouse like a day spa that features wellness treatments and of course you can’t forget the Michelin star restaurant. A dinner here is definitely a treat, and of course the complimentary 3-course breakfast inside the restaurant is one amenity to remember. The heated pool and jacuzzi means refreshing afternoon dips and nightly soaks under the stars.
Staying in this Russian River Valley luxury hotel makes for the perfect place to get away. It truly is a magical place to escape, so be to sure to stay a while.

PS — Are You Booking a Trip Soon? Use My Booking Checklist!
These are the sites I use most to book my own trips. Using the links below is a great way to support Bon Traveler’s travel journalism at no extra cost to you. If you need help organizing your itinerary, get my free travel itinerary template here.
1. Book Your Flights
Use Skyscanner to find the best flights. It searches 100s of airlines and websites across the globe to ensure you’re not missing out on any route options or deals.
2. Book Your Accommodations
Use Booking.com for hotels and guest houses. They have the biggest inventory and consistently offer the best rates.
3. Book Your Tours & Experiences
4. Book Your Car
Use Discover Cars or Rentalcars.com to find the best car rental deals. I recommend comparing rental agency reviews on Google to ensure you are booking with the best company in that destination, as the reviews are often more accurate than the car rental search engines.
5. Don’t Forget Airport Lounge Access
Get a Priority Pass membership to gain access to 1,400+ VIP lounges and airport experiences worldwide. The Priority Pass app is the first thing I check when I have a layover. I’ve been a member for over a decade, and having a comfortable place to relax before and between flights makes air travel so much more enjoyable.
6. Don’t Forget Travel Insurance
I never leave the country without travel insurance. It provides comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong (ie. illness, injury, theft, and cancelations, etc.). I use it frequently for my travels to stay protected.
My favorite companies that offer the best coverage and rates are:
