The expression “location,location, location” springs to mind when describing Applewood Inn, but this is only the beginning. This utterly romantic boutique wine country inn is tucked in its own little world in the heart of Sonoma County’s lush Russian River Valley. Its 19 guest rooms and suites provide a sanctuary for tranquility and intimacy, as well as a portal to world-class wineries, the enchanting Russian River, and mesmerizing nearby attractions like the Sonoma Coast and Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve.

Despite this ideal location, it’s not unusual to hear arriving guests confess it will be hard to leave the property. Nestled beneath towering redwood trees and embraced by fruit orchards and gardens, this getaway has all one could possibly ask for. The Restaurant at Applewood was awarded a Michelin star in 2011 and 2012 and is known for its delectable wine country cuisine inspired by the bounty of the Russian River Valley. The restaurant resources many of its ingredients from its own organic gardens, replete with organically grown fruits, herbs, and vegetables, as well as its own apiary and chicken coop. The inn’s commitment to the environment resonates beyond the restaurant to every corner of the property. Solar energy is used for producing electricity, and many other green practices are utilized to preserve the natural beauty of this very special oasis.

A little self-preservation and pampering is also encouraged at Applewood Inn. The Spa at Applewood offers a wonderful menu of therapeutic treatments, including soothing facials, deep muscle and warm river stone massages, and the pièce de résistance: the Applewood for Lovers Rejuvenation, a couple’s side-by-side massage in the spa, followed by the room service delivery of a delicious chef-prepared fruit and cheese platter paired with a bottle of Russian River Valley wine and a dozen long-stem roses.

In the heart of the Russian River Valley, there is no better way to relax, rejuvenate, and reconnect.
