You will find Gaige House in the Sonoma Valley hamlet of Glen Ellen. Yes, the Sonoma Valley of California – the other valley of equal wine fame.
Placed in a verdant, secluded setting along the Calabaza Creek, Gaige House includes an outdoor swimming pool and hot tub, and is accented with delightful surprises in hidden spots: a hammock shaded with ancient oaks, a miniature pagoda in a rock garden, a gurgling fountain.
It has 23 thoughtfully appointed guestrooms spread over the main house and a garden annexe. All quietly stylish (and very cozy), with a dose of Asiana in the form of shoji-esque doors and Buddhist statues and art.
Styled as a B&B, what you get at Gaige House includes a bountiful breakfast buffet each morning, an evening welcome reception with wine and cheese plus freshly-baked cookies!
And, then there is the Sanctuary Spa that gives you a truly private experience unlike a traditional spa. You can enjoy in-room treatments in the spa loft or your Zen Suite, or an outdoor massage in a peaceful and private cabana.
What else can you do when you are Gaige House? Consider this: more than 75 wineries call Sonoma Valley home, and because some vineyards date to the early 1800s, this area is also the recognized birthplace of the California wine industry. Which means a whole host of wine and winery tours and wine appeciation.
Apart from all the wine, you can enrol in cooking and wine classes at Ramekins. Surround yourself with African wildlife on a guided safari tour at Safari West. Or, just take a break from it all and enjoy the seclusion of Gaige House.
