Wellness-based Properties

Sonoma County is home to several properties that places wellness front and center, be it the guest rooms, public spaces and extracurricular activities.

Gaige House in Glen Ellen features 23 Asian-inspired guest rooms that are a thoughtful blend of vintage and modern decor. Of these 23 rooms, Gaige House features eight Zen suites that feature deep, large granite tubs and private Japanese gardens, as well as the ADA accessible Creekside Suite that comes with a private terrace.
