Top Wine Country Family Reunion Lodging
The Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa
Yes, Sonoma is a beacon for quality hotels, inns, and resorts. After a while, they all start to look the same. But there aren’t many hotels in Sonoma (or the world) that have ancient thermal mineral waters bubbling up on-site. Well, Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn does, and they invite you and your family to come and experience it for yourselves.
Your relatives won’t know what to do first: catch-up while taking a winery tour, relax in a soothing mineral bath, or eat at the Michelin award winning Santé. Before they do anything, they’ll check into their luxury lodgings, of course. Then it’s off for some intensive relaxations. The Willow Stream Spa and championship Sonoma Golf Course are year-round favorites, and will provide endless hours of entertainment and comfort for you and your extended family. As Fairmont so eloquently sums up on their website, “Extraordinary cuisine, a state-of-the-art Spa surrounded by exquisitely manicured grounds in the heart of Wine Country...A true lifestyle!”

After you settle in and catch up, get down to the spa post-haste! There you will rejuvenate both body and spirit in geothermal mineral pools, with massages, and plenty of volcanic ash mud baths.

Choose the Calistoga Spa Hot Springs for your next family reunion and you’ll be the most popular relative, bar none!

When you return, your luxurious and spacious, pet-friendly room will be waiting for you. Take a well-deserved nap or sit outside and marvel in the glorious California landscape while you ponder what a great decision coming to the BWSVI was.
