Tucked into the Sonoma Valley hamlet of Glen Ellen, the Gaige House + Ryokan is a zen hideaway featuring 23 thoughtfully-appointed guestrooms with modern Asian details. Our verdant and secluded setting along the Calabazas Creek offers a tranquil Wine Country retreat with delightful accents such as meditation areas, calming fountains, private zen gardens, and luxurious amenities such as on-site spa treatments. We have been recommended in Michelin and other guides, as well as listed repeatedly in Condé Nast Traveler's Gold List of the top hotels in the world.
The original Zen suites, which include king beds, fireplaces, private karesansui Zen rock gardens, outdoor patios, and deep granite soaking tubs, have been enhanced with authentic Japanese accents for the full Ryokan experience. In-room amenities heightening comfort and tranquility include classic yukata kimonos, geta and zori slippers, meditative music, and Japanese delicacies including green tea, saké and ice cream mochi. The traditional bathing experience has been complemented by the addition of Coyuchi bathrobes and towels, and hinoki wood bathing accessories including mats, stools and ladles.
Transformative outdoor spaces at Gaige House + Ryokan now include a new Meditation Deck along the creek, providing guests with a sanctuary for quiet reflection and yoga practice. The inn’s Sun Deck, adjacent to the breakfast room, provides multiple seating areas for guests to relax and enjoy sake or wine, while overlooking the surrounding mountain views. Offering a fire pit and cozy chairs, the Sun Deck is a great place for couples to spend time outdoors and meet other guests. Gaige House + Ryokan’s Moon Deckis a peaceful setting completed with swinging chairs for guests to read, sip wine, and soak in the beauty of the gardens and twinkling lanterns at night.
In the main house, guests are greeted with Jasmine green tea and homemade matcha cookies. Each evening, the inn hosts “Magic Hour,” with pairings of local wine and artisanal cheese. Complimentary nightcaps of saké, port or sherry are also available in the refreshed lounge. Guests can enjoy nearby wineries and vineyards such as Kunde, Repris, Kivelstadt Cellars Wine Tasting & Taproom, Laurel Glen Vineyard, Talisman Wines and Korbin Kameron Tasting Room, and walkable restaurants including Glen Ellen Star, and The Fig Café and Wine Bar.
Retire to the inn and enjoy a glass of sake, port, or sherry in our Gathering Room each night.
An elegant blend of vintage and contemporary, the inn's accommodations feature 23 thoughtfully-appointed guestrooms with a modern, Asian flair.
