Spring Blossoms and Butterfly Gardens

March 02, 2020

As winter turns to spring, flowers are blooming, birds are singing, and we at the Farmhouse Inn can hardly wait to take advantage of the warmer weather here in one of the West Coast’s most idyllic vacation destinations. During your visit to the Farmhouse Inn this spring, we suggest biking along the scenic five-and-a-half-mile West County Trail that joins our own enchanting town of Forestville to neighboring Sebastopol. This flat, paved trail is like an illustration taken straight out of a children’s storybook, featuring resplendent views of the family farms and vineyards that define Sonoma County. Once in Sebastopol, there will be plenty to explore, but our favorite site is probably the Hallberg Butterfly Gardens, a magnificent butterfly sanctuary open to the public from April through October. Whether you prefer to stroll through the gardens on your own or enjoy one of the expert-guided tours, be sure to call ahead at 707-823-3420 to make an appointment.
