The couple’s Jacuzzi offered a windowed view of the private porch and forest while they bathe. There were more choices in the shower with either steam, or a regular shower, or both at the same time.  


Enjoy the fireplace in the bedroom or on the porch.

The fireplace worked either in the bedroom or on the private porch for romantic evenings. My suite had a weather vane on the dresser, farm implements and other interesting decorations. I was happy to see their television brought all of my favorite programs even though I was busy with so much to do around the area.

Joe Bartolomei explained, “We have a total of 18 cottages, main house rooms and barn suites on our six acre property. Our guests really get personal attention with six concierges and three bellmen for the 18 rooms.

Farmhouse Inn-#1-Northern California

There is something soothing about being in the country surrounded by the forest while time seems to stop."

Catherine Bartolomei felt, "We wanted to remind our guests they are in the country and for them to feel comfy and farmy. Guests from urban areas don?t have private decks tucked into the woods with double sided fireplaces. Our rooms are playful and campy."

Joe discussed the things to do around the area, "We are 20 minutes from Sonoma and 30 minutes from Napa with over 310 wineries with 150 wineries even closer.  There's plenty of wine tasting here!

The Farmhouse Inn is 30 minutes from the coast for whale watching, beaches or other activities and near the Redwood Tree State Park. There is also canoeing and picnicking along the Russian River. Other activities include ballooning, horseback riding, golf and hiking."

For information, call (800)-464-6642.  The Farmhouse Inn is located in Forestville, California, minutes from California Highway 101, and just 2 hours north of San Francisco.   


I am always amazed every time I visit California because they have so much to offer with something for everyone! This was my first time in Northern California and enjoyed the Coast Highway with such beautiful views of the ocean, beaches, unique rock formations, and cliffs.

Visit California would be happy to assist you in planning your California trip whether it is for families, couples, honeymoons, unique settings for weddings, business, or whatever reason. They really know California and can suggest the perfect accommodations, restaurants, attractions, tours, meeting facilities, theme vacations, eco-trips, adventure getaways, beaches, and more.

My flight from Las Vegas to San Francisco was a quick one hour and fifteen minutes which is great if you want to stop in San Francisco before or after driving north. There are also daily direct flights from Las Vegas to Santa Rosa.
