5 Wine Country Resorts With Pool and Spa
Sonoma County's wonderful climate makes it a great place to enjoy some hot-weather fun. Cool off in style at one of the beautiful swimming pools at these Sonoma County resorts.
You can choose pools that are family-friendly, romantic, or designed for a workout. Most offer poolside dining service and drinks, and some offer other amenities.
Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa
This luxury resort offers two beautifully landscaped swimming pools, both filled with geothermal mineral water from the nearby Boyes Hot Springs.
The family-friendly main pool is open seasonally during the warmer months, and offers lap swimming and poolside dining.
The pool at the Inn's elegant Willow Stream Spa provides a peaceful, romantic setting for relaxation, while the spa itself is currently open on a limited basis, offering private massage treatments and some salon services.
Kenwood Inn and Spa
This glamorous Tuscan-style resort in Kenwood features two pools—one warmed by a geothermal spring, the other cool and refreshing—ideal for relaxation, retreat, and romantic getaways. Kenwood Inn maintains an atmosphere of tranquility and quiet, so the pools are unsuitable for those eighteen and under.
With a solar-heated infinity pool surrounded by fragrant gardens and flowers, the Farmhouse Inn offers a romantic retreat.
The pool is heated seasonally, April to October, and the hot tub is heated year round. Children are welcome at the Inn (with advance notice), but pets are not allowed.
The Spa at Farmhouse by Francis & Alexander, open only to hotel guests, offers a farm-to-table treatment menu that uses honey and produce from the inn's home ranch, as well as herbs grown in the Farmhouse Inn kitchen garden.
Gaige House + Ryokan
Built as a private home in the late 1800s, Gaige House now beckons as a zen hideaway infused with traditional Japanese hospitality.
This family-friendly Santa Rosa resort features an Olympic-size main pool that's perfect for fun time with the kids. Poolside dining is also available.
Next door, the Montecito Health Club & Spa is open with Covid-19 protocols in place. Guests may book massages, salon services, and other restorative therapies, as well as visit their lap pool.
