“Big wow on arrival!”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

We were visiting family who recommended this inn during our stay in Glen Ellen. Wow! I did not expect the fireplace, tiled floors, large spacious room, ultra comfortable bed with quality linens, large bathroom and an in-room Jacuzzi tub. All at a very reasonable rate. Only wish we could have stayed an extra night to enjoy dinner in the restaurant and romantic retreat. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. I don't know if Glen Ellen is a destination in itself, but if in the area, it's the place to stay.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be quiet. All rooms accessible from an outdoor footpath draped in grapevines, acc...

We stayed in cottage 2 and it was beautiful!! big King sized bed with 4 posts(wood). There was an area with a cute table and chairs, with a fresh bowl of fruits cookies and scones. A beautiful mini bar but you had to pay for some some things. It is to be expected. There was a nice Jacuzzi bath and a huge shower with the option of steaming it! Nice balcony with a view of a stream and a cute bridge. The rooms were cleaned every day too. It was a nice quiet place to relax! Very romantic:)

I stayed at Glen Ellen on my birthday trip with my husband. It was a very memorable staycation. We got the Cottage #5 with a window overlooking the creek. It was very peaceful... I wish we stayed longer. Will stay again soon!

This was our second stay at the secret cottages. Both visits we ended up in cottage #5. Although the bed is a queen, it is comfortable. The pillows could be upgraded. The AC in the room is amazing and there is a ceiling fan as well. The room had a tub and a fireplace. Our shower had great water pressure and it was also a steam shower. You also don't hear any outside noise. The price got the cottage is very reasonable. Overall a terrific stay. If you can't get into the Olea this is the place to stay.

This is one of my favorite places I have ever stayed! The rooms are very clean and oh so romantic! Very close to Sonoma wineries and Sonoma Square. We drove to Napa one day as well and it was a very easy drive! The restaurant at Glen Ellen Inn is amazing, too!!! We enjoyed our stay so much....we will be back!!!

Needed a place to stay for one night after a wine event last month and this was one of the few places available for a Saturday only stay, and boy did we luck out. Stayed in Cottage #1 and my wife loved the jacuzzi tub and the fireplace. Amenities were great, room was really nice and boy is it a great value. Couldn't find any place else nearly as nice for less than twice the price.

Had reservations at another restaurant in the Sonoma Square that night and decided to stay and eat at the restaurant and we were not disappointed. Food, wine and service were great.

We're looking forward to our next stay at this quiet and charming place.

We recently stayed in cottage #3 and couldn't have been more pleased. After a long drive from San Diego, it was so refreshing to walk into this nicely furnished and decorated cottage. The bed was so comfortable and the soaking tub was a welcome relief after a long day of driving. The baked goods and fruit on the table were an extra nice touch, as well. It was a rather hot day, so it was also a nice surprise to walk into the nice cool room.

After we checked in, we had a nice meal at the restaurant in front of the cottages. All I can say about that is--delicious. From the house salad, to the pasta, to my husband's steak, to the wine and then dessert, we couldn't have asked for better service or food. They have highly skilled chef(s).

After staying in peaceful Glen Ellen, we wouldn't stay in any other area in Napa/Sonoma. The price was reasonable, we had a nice view of a small stream out our window and the room was lovely. It's a short drive to any winery of your choosing. Highly recommend not only the inn, but also the restaurant. We will definitely be going back. Their hospitality can't be beat.
