Kenwood Inn and Spa entrance

My first wine trip to California was to say the least spectacular!  Mostly in part to staying at the Kenwood Inn. We had a choice in several Sonoma hotels but when I took a look at the Kenwood’s web site I was sold.  The Kenwood reviews reported were all excellent, so I was confident we were in for a luxury hotel stay.

The exterior of the Kenwood Inn and Spa is made to look like the hotel in Sonoma could be right out of an old Italian town, even though the Inn was built in 1989.  The grounds also match the Mediterranean theme with bougainvillea vines, arch walkways, fountains and statues.

The location of the hotel in Kenwood is centrally located and close to all Sonoma county has to offer.  Many of the Sonoma county wineries  are some of the best in California.

Here is a combined list of hotels we have had the pleasure of spending holidays at

Kenwood Inn and Spa Suite

Oh I can’t say enough about our suite!  The feeling you get from each room with it’s own entry way is that you are walking into an Italian villa but right n Sonoma California.  We found the suite to be decorated beautifully.  Large bathroom with all the accessories needed.  We were there in February, the temperature was perfect during the day however a little chilly at night.  The fireplace with it’s two comfortable chairs were very much appreciated and cozy.  We loved sitting in front of the fireplaces, being from Florida we do not use our’s too often. It actually was hard to leave the comfort of the suite to go on wine tours.

Music softly plays from a Bose speaker with a soothing romantic playlist.  Your room fills with the sounds from Norah Jones and Etta James. Uniquely, there are no televisions and you wouldn’t want one, it would just ruin the mood!  Of course, I downloaded the exact songs they had on the playlist to my phone too! In fact, I’m listening to them as I write this post 🙂

Kenwood Inn and Spa Dining

Meals at the Kenwood Inn and Spa were absolutely delicious.  There was nothing missing on the beautiful breakfast buffet display which was included in our hotel stay. Our dinners were especially my favorite, enjoyed in front of individual fireplaces. Amazingly, every dish served was perfected by an older gentleman who was the chef at the time.


A Day at the Kenwood Spa

To add to your relaxation add a Kenwood Spa package to your stay.  We enjoyed a couples massage at this amazing Sonoma spa! It was so unique- the room was a large a tent up on a roof.  The pool and sauna were just steps from our little villa, lounge chairs with fluffy oversized towels in a courtyard setting.  Ordering wine and cheese poolside was a perfect touch to a spa day in Sonoma.

Great food at the Kenwood Inn and Spa!

Out of all the places to stay in the wine country of Sonoma I am really happy we choice this Kenwood resort.  If you are visiting Sonoma or the Napa Valley region I highly recommend the Kenwood Inn and Spa.  It was hard to leave the hotel and visit wineries for me, we loved the ambience of the Kenwood Inn and Spa and shall return one day!

    I loved Napa Valley! Can’t wait to go back and check out some new places!

    This place looks absolutely beautiful! I love Sonoma so I’ll check this out next time I’m headed there. Was it close to many wineries?

    I LOVE The Scrambled States of America. I read it in a classroom that I observed, and it is definitely worth the read. Also, I’ve never been to Sonoma, but I have been wanting to visit. This seems like a nice place to check out.

    Meals, spa and wine – looks like a perfect trip! Glad you had a good time 🙂

    Oh this does like a dreamy Italian villa! What a lovely combination of vineyrds and picture perfect hotel. The rooms look very cozy, between them and the pool even I wouldn’t able to drag myself out of the property;)

    Sounds like an amazing place to stay, surprising to learn that the place was less than 30 years old. It really did have an old world charm to it based on those photos.

    I’ve been to a Kenwood House in London. That too looks so nice with all the greenery around it!
    Rooms having their own entrance and a fireplace too???
    It would be just an awesome experience to stay here!

    This looks lovely and perfectly fitting for California!

    Have enjoyed sampling Californian wine at home. Need to take it to the next level and actually visit the wine regions soon, though.

    I love the way the building is done, it looks really like in middle of Italian town. Wine and spa sounds like a perfect way to relax yourself and just enjoy..

  • December 13, 2017

    I desperately need some time away and I think this would be the perfect place to be!! Spas are my favourite – I need a day (or week) there!

  • December 14, 2017

    I’d love to sit and relax by the fireplace too while music plays on the background! What a relaxing scene you’ve just described! 😀 .. The place looks really relaxing.. Glad to hear you had a great time!

  • December 14, 2017

    This looks like a nice place to stay and it looks like it is located in a pretty area.

    I love spa hotels, Kenwood Inn and Spa looks a perfect place aftera day of wine tasting around Napa valley. Good food, wine and spa what else can a girl asked for!

  • December 17, 2017

    My girlfriends and I are planning a Napa Valley getaway but had no idea where to start! Thank you for this post! I love the Mediterranean flair to the Kenwood Inn and how cozy the amenities are. Fireplaces and sauna, with a plate of cheese and a glass of wine within’s arm reach? I’m sold!

  • December 18, 2017

    Does seem like a lovely place to stay in. Comfortable and cosy. And wine and cheese by the pool is exactly what I would like to do when I am here. Along with a spa treatment. 🙂 Now that would be luxury too.

    I’ve lived in San Francisco for more than two years now and I still haven’t been to Napa or Sonoma. And now with those fires… It’s so terrible. But I will definitely put the Kenwood Inn and Spa on my list for when I get there.
