Nestled on 1.5 landscaped acres bordering the Calabazas Creek, the Gaige House has transformed several times over more than a century -- from a private home to a school house, a brothel and finally a meat market -- before being made over into a bed-and-breakfast in the 1980s.

All accommodations are outfitted in simple, elegant shades of cream, black and white with dark wood furniture, bamboo and rattan accents, and modern necessities like free Wi-Fi. 

All stays include complimentary daily breakfast buffet as well as wine and cheese in the sitting room each evening. Throughout the day, guests can nibble on freshly baked cookies or sip port -- both are always available on a sideboard in the entryway. Guests can walk just five minutes to three of the town’s best restaurants: the Fig Café, sister property for Sonoma’s renowned The Girl and the Fig; the Glen Ellen Star, serving garden-to-table cuisine; and Glen Ellen Inn, a popular oyster and martini bar. The hotel is within a half mile of Sonoma Valley Regional Park and less than 2 miles from Jack London State Historic Park as well as Quarryhill Botanical Garden. Stays also include an evening cordial bar with port, sherry and sake as well as two passes per day to Parkpoint Health Club Sonoma featuring state of the art workout facilities, fitness classes and more.

After a day of sightseeing or wine tasting, guests can unwind in the heated outdoor pool and hot tub or book spa treatments on the Creekside deck, in a garden cabana or in the privacy of their rooms. The property’s design encourages visitors to kick back and relax with hammocks hanging from the ancient oaks, Adirondack chairs lining the pool and a rock garden with a pagoda and fountains.

Our room was disappointing would not stay in that room again. Well decorated but just felt like you were staying in the basement and it didn’t have a bath.

Breakfast could improve. Our toilet was not working well, bathroom amenities were Spartan, I won't return since the area is not ideal, to far from good wineries and restaurants. Nice but overpriced for the amenities and area.

construction was going on by our room and it was loud. Fortunately I am an early riser. If you are not, don't take a room by the pool.

Other Comments
Staff knew nothing about the wine tasting passes and did not offer the spa service discounts that were meant to be part of the package. Breakfast could have been nicer, cookies were over cooked. We felt this was an ok inn but could have been awesome with a few simple tweaks.
