Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay: Come to the Russian River where redwoods tower over the forest, where you can relax in the warm afternoon sunlight and where the nights are clear and cool. Sonoma Orchid Inn Bed & Breakfast sits on over 2 acres of meadow on a hill-top, below more stars than you’ve ever seen. We’re close to local vineyards, where you’ll find premier Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. Or take a short drive to the Pacific Coast. The Russian River flows nearby, and Korbel’s vineyards surround us on the west and north. You’ll find it all here in Sonoma County – the Russian River Valley is a vacation playground for wine lovers, outdoorsmen, and anyone who enjoys the beauty of the Pacific Coast. The Sonoma Orchid Inn is a historic 1906 farmhouse that has been completely renovated with wifi internet access, private bathrooms, hot tub, fireplaces and a guest kitchen open all day and night. Step into our gorgeous living room and you’ll feel like you’re standing in the middle of the redwoods – floor to ceiling windows open onto coastal oaks and towering redwood trees on our grounds. Both the living room and guest kitchen are for our guests’ use – play a game on the oak table, curl up and read a book on one of our overstuffed chairs, and snack on fresh-baked cookies from the kitchen. Chill a bottle of wine in the refrigerator for a romantic evening, or use the glasses, plates, silver and trays to put together a picnic to enjoy at our outdoor picnic-table in the shade of the coastal oaks. Our Russian River inn offers ten guestrooms – each one has private bathrooms, pleasant colors and textures, and views of the redwood forest outside. Red chairs are sprinkled throughout our property – sit down and enjoy the mountain air Stay with us at Sonoma Orchid Inn B&B and do it all, or do nothing at all!
