Sonoma County Wine and Romance

Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and for those of you looking to find that perfect romantic getaway, look no further.  Sonoma wine country is the perfect place to sneak away for a little, and here at Farmhouse Inn we've become quite the experts at serving up the most romantic meals and special packages available.  So skip the stuffed animal and grocery store red roses (trust us) and let us help you plan the perfect vacation that will sweep your love off their feet! 

At Farmhouse Inn, each concierge has become an expert at knowing what works to set the mood for those looking to score some major points in the romance department.  It's not hard to get some of that lovin' feeling when you're staying at one of Wall Street Journal's 10 Coziest Hotels in the United States and the Best Hotel in California per Travel & Leisure readers.  Whether you're snuggled in front of the fire pit making your own gourmet s'mores or soaking in a tub with the window open while your partner enjoys the two-sided fireplace from the private deck amongst the redwoods... there is no escaping the romantic atmosphere here at Farmhouse Inn.

Add a bit of romance to your room stay with our Romance Package and get a bottle of bubbles, a beautiful bouquet, handmade chocolate truffles and a side-by-side couple's massage at the Spa at Farmhouse.   We even let you take all the credit! We make sure that each of our guests gets special attention so that no detail goes overlooked in making your getaway absolutely perfect.

Whether you prefer to enjoy a fireside food and wine pairing at one of our partner wineries, or maybe you're keen to walk on the wild side and want to explore some Wild Jungle Love at Safari West; we can find exactly what you're looking for!  This year, stop by J Vineyards Bubble Room in Healdsburg for a chocolate ménage à trois with new winery chef Jason LaBue (formerly of our partner property Meadowood).  On the menu for February; oyster chowder croquette, beet risotto with cocoa nibs, braised brisket with gnocchi and black trumpet mushrooms, baby red velvet cake and chocolate "three ways". 

Perhaps, though, this all sounds fine and dandy but you're looking for something bigger, grander- the most romantic surprise ever.  Well lucky for you, Farmhouse Inn hosts beautiful, intimate elopements for the couple seeking a moment they can call uniquely their own.  We do everything from finding an officiant and photographer to ordering the cake and the flowers.  All you have to do is show up (bring rings), enjoy a couple's massage and dinner for two at the Farmhouse restaurant, and when the time comes, say 'I do!'.

These are just suggestions of course, for how one might experience the most sublimely wonderful Valentine's Day holiday, one that has the power to rekindle lost loves, or simply bring two soul mates closer together. Still need some help planning that romantic getaway? 

If the word "elopement" makes you shiver in your boots, perhaps something simple and classic will do for you.  What about taking a drive out to the coast to catch the sunset off the Pacific Ocean while enjoying a bottle of bubbles and some oysters on the half shell?

What would be better than good wine, good company, amazing s’mores, and a cozy fire?  I can’t think of anything else I would want!  Joey and I really enjoyed the nostalgia of roasting and toasting the marshmallows over the fire!  It definitely took me back to my childhood and I had no shame in having two of them!  I couldn’t help it!.continue
