Family and friends rely on you to be their travel agent. (Who can blame them? You do have impeccable taste.)
But here?s one to keep to yourself: Farmhouse Inn in Sonoma. The Russian River Valley property was originally built as a farmhouse in the 1800s, and the rumor is that it became a gay disco and brothel during the ?80s and ?90s.
The boutique inn recently completed major renovations that include new farmhouse-chic rooms, a revamped pool and a luxury spa that?s very ?glammed-up stable.?
While you?re there, book a Roll in the Hay couples massage and scrub your beloved with a warm exfoliating hay pack. Then settle in for side-by-side aromatherapy massages. Gaze into each other?s eyes over a romantic dinner at the inn?s Michelin-starred restaurant (order the scallops and rose-scented fresh strawberries). Retreat to your room, putter around on heated floors and soak in the spa tub. Cuddle by the fire while discussing sexy topics like where to board the dog over Memorial Day weekend and why you really need to get a new entryway table.
Rates for the 25 rooms start at $595, and to celebrate the expansion, the inn is offering a third night free through June 30. We promise a weekend getaway here is well worth the splurge.
