Spa-ing at Sonoma's Farmhouse Inn

April 8, 2010 By: Lindsay Lambert Luxury Travel Advisor
 


Farmhouse Inn, Restaurant and Spa

 

If your clients are true gourmands, or simply appreciate the benefits of fresh ingredients, they’re likely familiar with the concept of farm-to-table cuisine. Now, with the debut of its new spa, the Farmhouse Inn, Restaurant and Spa, in Northern California’s Russian River Valley (that’s Sonoma Wine Country), is introducing a twist to the concept by bringing farm-fresh ingredients to the treatment room.

For guests, this means natural, sustainable, farm-inspired treatments using home-grown ingredients like carrots (which are used in one of the four-room spa’s more indulgent services, a three-hour treatment called Carrot, Carrot, Carrot), grapes and apples, and even honey that’s made in the inn’s hives. Ingredients are also delivered to the spa’s kitchen, where they’re prepared into a number of healthful offerings that nourish from the inside, as well.

Many specialized treatments are administered in the inn’s Barn Suites, each of which includes a steam shower and spacious balcony that accommodates twin treatment tables, all surrounded and shaded by large, looming trees. Suggest the Barn Suite Decadence treatment for your favorite couple clients; its finale includes a bubble bath for two, accompanied by a dessert created by Farmhouse’s pastry chef. Luxury travel advisors can contact Anna McPeck (anna@farmhouseinn.com; 800-464-6642) for booking inquiries and for treatments, which are exclusive to Farmhouse guests.

Luxury Touch: Six concierges oversee guests in a mere 18 rooms. They can direct guests to the 75 wineries within 10 miles. And, since the inn is owned by siblings Catherine and Joe Bartolomei, who are fifth-generation Sonoma County grape growers, they’ve got all the insider secrets. Other fun options include hot-air balloon rides, bike rentals, beach walks and redwood forest hikes.
