Farmhouse Inn unveils multi-million dollar redesign

Farmhouse Inn, a boutique hotel located in  California's Sonoma Wine Country, underwent a property expansion and revitalization. The renovation included nine new luxury rooms, new outdoor spaces, a revitalized pool area and a new farm-to-table spa.

The sibling owners, Joe and Catherine Bartolomei, remodeled the new rooms to resemble the rustic historic barns of Sonoma County's vineyards and hillsides. In partnership with Francis & Alexander, the new spa is an extension of the Sonoma farm-inspired experience with a menu of spa services incorporating materials from the owner's ranch, along with herbs grown right in Farmhouse's kitchen garden.

According to Catherine Bartolomei, the re-design added elements and details that enable the hotel to take full advantage of its location in the Russian River Valley.
