This is a comfortable place decorated with great taste and a true feeling of hospitality. The beds are good, the place is spotless and the breakfast terrific. The real asset is the obvious hospitality of the hosts.

We have stayed with Sonoma Orchid Inn in the past, and enjoyed this stay just as much as our previous visit. Brian and Dana are charming hosts, and go out of their way to make sure every guest has a great experience. They are also a wealth of information when it comes to everything Sonoma. The hearty and delicious breakfasts...

Situated just eleven or so miles west of highway 101, the Sonoma Orchid Inn offers an enchanting home base to visit any of the hundreds of wineries nearby. This remarkably restored 1906 farmhouse has six lovely rooms in the main house as well as rooms available in an outlying building. My daughterGail and I were in the Maple room upstairs...

My daughter and I stayed at the Sonoma Orchid Inn over the holiday season. Brian and Dana gave us wonderful suggestions on places to go and visit during our stay. The accommodations were clean and beautiful. Coffee and tea readily available. Breakfasts were fantastic!! Fire going in the fireplace. Plenty of parking as well.

What a great last minute find. Charming sitting room loaded with games and books and a fireplace to cozy up to. Breakfasts were delicious! Yes you can hear cars from the road when your sitting in the living room but that didnt seem to stop our conversations with the other guests. Great find!

Nestled in the Redwoods next to Korbel Wine Cellars, the Sonoma Orchid Inn is long on ambiance. The 1906 farmhouse has been beautifully restored and the inn keepers are gracious and amazing hosts! The breakfasts were over the top fabulous as well. Would recommend this B and B when looking for a retreat away from the crowds.

A comfortable place all around. Our rooms included a bedroom and a sitting room, right off the main area. Owners were great, very accomodating, and extremely knowledgeable about this area. Was a separate kitchen for guests complete with fridge, microwave, and really good cookies, Location was central to the whole valley but in a secluded area. Only drawback to the...

We loved the Sonoma Orchid Inn. Dana and Bryan were very accommodating and warm, and breakfast was yummy. The property is lovely, and close to countless great wineries. The hosts were helpful in picking restaurants and giving advice on activities. We would definitely stay here again!

One of the best B&Bs we've stayed at due in large part to the personal touch, warmth, hospitality, knowledge and dedication of innkeepers Dana & Brian. They care a lot about the comfort and enjoyment of their guests and it clearly shows. Breakfasts were delicious, the grounds and main house were lovely and we felt right at home, as did...

I am leery of fussily decorated places like this but the great location and great advice on touring and restaurants made up for it. Bryan steered us away from an ordinary restaurant to a great one. He provided a great map with an itinerary for a day tour around Bodega Bay with stops at places we would have missed. The...
