Farmhouse Inn, a boutique hotel near the western Sonoma County community of Forestville in Russian River Valley, is completing an $8 million renovation and expansion project.
On Sept. 1, a new spa is set to open. The project also includes nine new "barn" rooms, designed to look like those structures of yesteryear that dot the county's vineyards and hillsides, and a revamped pool area. The new rooms have large windows and private decks overlooking the woods, a jetted tub and separate steam shower, radiant-heated floors, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, and classic furniture.

The inn will soon have 25 rooms. They range from the 350-square-foot "king standard" cottage for $595 a night to the 700-square-foot "king luxury" suites for $995 a night. The new "king deluxe" rooms have 550--600 square feet and go for $845 a night.
Four barn cottages will be available Aug. 8 and the remaining five, Aug. 22.
A guest services building is set to open in November or December.
Farmhouse tied for No. 28 with a 123-suite Thai resort on Travel + Leisure magazine's 19th annual list of the world's best hotels, garnering a reader score of 94.67 out of 100. The publication noted Farmhouse's six concierges, three bellmen and farm-to-table restaurant, rated with one "star" by Michelin.
The project team was SB Architects, ValleyCrest landscape architects, Myra Hoefer Design and general contractor Shook & Waller.
From Aug. 1 through Dec. 25, Farmhouse is offering a free night for four or more nights booked in the "king deluxe" or "luxury" barn rooms.***
