Our particular room (Wisteria) was near the main street, so noisy. My husband thought the room was too small. I thought our room smelled like an outhouse. (When we arrived, we were told they just steam cleaned the carpet and had fans going to get it dry.) The other rooms might be great--we don't know. Breakfast was nice, but not...

Spent three nights here recently and had a wonderful time. We stayed in the Hawthorne room which was spacious, luxurious, and so comfortable (even a window seat which I've always coveted). The ratings below this say what I would so I just want to say, ditto.

After a long day of motorcycle riding, I wanted a small, quaint, clean and quiet place. This Inn was perfect.It is right next to the Korbel winery, which makes it convenient for wine lovers. Brian and Dana are helpful, friendly and personable. The Inn is appointed with lots of interesting art and many country chickens, which I loved. The living...

Brian and Dana provided us a welcoming and comfortable stay at Sonoma Orchid while celebrating our 15th year anniversary. The property is conveniently located between the coast and vineyards. When you are not touring, the plants and flowers on the property are so lovely, you'll just want to spend a quiet morning or evening taking it all in. We hope...

It's the intangibles that add so much enjoyment to a stay here. The home is well decorated and inviting. The added value is the warm welcome by one of the hosts, being shown the guest mini-kitchen with refrigerator for guests, and offered fresh baked homemade cookies upon arrival. Brian and Dana know all the special tours and places to see...

The Sonoma Orchid Inn was the first B & B we have stayed at and we couldnt have asked for a better experience. The Inn is perfectly situated between nearby wineries and the Pacific coastline at nearby Jenner. We loved the nearby Armstrong Woods Sate Park. Brian and Dana were fantastic hosts with plenty of suggestions on what to see,...

This was the second time we stayed at the Sonoma Orchid Inn and it was as good as the first. Their inn is settled in the Russian River Valley within easy driving distance to some of the best wines and hiking in the area. Dana and Brian do a great job at making you feel at home. The freshly made...

What a wonderful romantic getaway. My husband and I had a wonderful time. The Sonoma Valley is very beautiful and The Orchid Inn is such a beautiful find. Brian and David are excellent hosts and our breakfast was wonderful. "Great Bed and Breakfast". Also, the sheets on these beds are the softest I have ever encountered and Brian has ordered...

My fiance and I were looking for a romantic get away, and we were delighted with the Sonoma Orchid Inn. This bed and breakfast was in a charming old farmhouse, but it was very well renovated and maintained. The hosts - Brian & Dana - treat you like you're their favorite relative that they want to impress. Dana is an...

We stumbled upon a hidden gem when searching for a B&B in the Sonoma area. While booking, Brian was extremely helpful in planning our visit, and when we arrived Brian and Dana proved to be so much more than inn-keepers. The food was delicious, the grounds were beautiful, and their recommendations for planning our days were perfect! We highly recommend...
