Announced in the May 2013 issue of Andrew Harper's Hideaway Report, The Farmhouse Inn received the highest rating among properties visited during the trip
FORESTVILLE, Calif., June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Andrew Harper's Hideaway Report, the most respected publication in luxury travel, announced in its May 2013 issue the recommendation of Sonoma's Farmhouse Inn with a 94 rating; the highest of all during their trip through the California wine country.
The Farmhouse Inn in the Russian River Valley offers a Michelin-starred restaurant with Sonoma County's only Master Sommelier on staff, an attractive spa offering farm-to-table treatments in the Carriage house, and a terrific concierge staff to craft itineraries and arrange tastings at local wineries and to point you to other local favorite activities in the Sonoma wine county.
From the report:
"Sophisticated, family-owned country-style inn with 18 rooms in an 1873 clapboard-sided farmhouse, adjacent farm workers' cottages and a new barn built on the site of the farm's original barn. The spacious "Barn Rooms," (larger than "Heritage Rooms") include large windows, fireplaces and lavish marble baths with radiant floor heating, whirlpool tubs and large walk-in showers; private decks overlook a creek and wooded area. The menu of the inviting Michelin-starred restaurant draws on agricultural diversity of the area; and an extensive list of wines, many in half-bottles."
All of Andrew Harper's recommended properties possess exceptional character, a commitment to classic hospitality and a profound sense of place. Mr. Harper does not evaluate hotels by means of a checklist, but uses his three decades of experience to distinguish the truly enchanting from the merely excellent. Farmhouse Inn is delighted to be among the best of the best properties worldwide to receive his recommendation. http://www.farmhouseinn.com/
