The Farmhouse Inn in Sonoma's wine country is a little hotel that's getting bigger. The inn (which really does have a farmhouse) in Forestville, Calif., is adding nine luxury rooms and a spa to its six-acre site.
That may not sound like much of an expansion compared with a Las Vegas mega-hotel, but it's a big leap for the Russian River Valley hotel that for the past two years has earned a spot on Travel + Leisure's World's Best Hotels list.
"The place is family-run, friendly, and down-home, yet spares no expense in treating guests like visiting royalty," T+L says in its 2014 ranking.
New Barn rooms have been built behind the main house in a woodsy area of the property. They come in two sizes -- luxury and deluxe -- and feature big view windows, tubs with jets, private decks and fireplace. These rooms go for $845 to $995 a night.
The inn is running an introductory offer through the end of the year: Anyone who books the new deluxe rooms for three nights will receive a fourth night free. You can reserve now for stays starting Aug. 21.
Aside from the new rooms, guests also have the choice of cottage rooms and suites, some with two-person saunas, that cost $595 to $745 a night. There also are rooms in the original farmhouse that date to 1872.
The inn has upgraded other parts of the property too, including a renovated pool area and a new spa slated to open in September.
