Welcome to Thistle Dew Inn!

Our inn was the first licensed bed and breakfast in the wine country hamlet of Sonoma. The sister and brother team of Jan and Gregg have owned the Inn since 2003. Guests from as far away as Japan, Australia, and Italy have stayed here. Visitors as close as the San Francisco Bay Area have become frequent guests.

We invite you to scroll down and take a little tour of Thistle Dew Inn. Then select your preferred guest room and give us a call!

We look forward to your visit ... Jan and Gregg


THEN AND NOW: The two homes which comprise the Inn were built in 1869 and 1910. They both have ceilings over eleven feet high, and the common area rooms reflect the graciousness and scale of the period. Overall, the Inn is comfortable and cozy; not stuffy, nor grandiose. The atmosphere is casual, yet furnished with original Arts and Crafts pieces. The dining room includes an original Gustav Stickley table and sideboard, as seen on the PBS series "Find!" History is blended thoughtfully with modern day conveniences. Each room has a phone with voicemail and the entire inn has wireless internet access. We do not have televisions in the room, although one room, the Mimosa, does have a cable outlet, and a small television can be set up there on request.

FOR YOUR COMFORT: Over the years, the most requested amenities at our Inn have been fireplaces and whirlpool tubs. We feature both in many of our rooms, and we have three rooms with fireplaces and three rooms with luxurious two-person whirlpool tubs; two of these rooms have both! Moreover, all four of our rooms in the rear house have private entrances and private decks in the garden. Our queen beds are firm, and our linens are 300 thread count 100% fine combed cotton which we wash in unscented detergent. We use no air-fresheners or potpourri, and our cleansers are environmentally safe and bio-degradable. We do not allow any smoking inside the Inn, so the rooms are all non-smoking.

BREAKFAST: Breakfast at the Thistle Dew Inn is predictably sumptuous. We take pride in using only the finest and freshest ingredients, and believe that food should look as good as it tastes. Each plate is prepared to order. If you have special dietary requirements, let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you. Breakfast is served from 8am to 9am Monday through Saturday, and from 8:30 am to 9:30 am on Sunday. When delivered to the guest rooms for an additional fee, breakfast is served at 9 am or 9:30 am, after serving the guests in the dining room. The Inn does not serve any alcohol, but guests are welcome to bring their own wine to enjoy.

GARDENS AND HOT TUB: Our gardens are of particular note. The perennial gardens are always in transition, one plant or another blooming or sprouting. We have planted many fragrant roses as well, both modern and heritage cultivars. The wisteria-covered arbor shelters the sub-tropical fern garden. Not just plants fill the gardens, however; you’ll also find our new hot tub spa in the garden. Located in quiet corners and flanked by benches are two small fountains, where guests can sit and relax, read a book or sip some wine.
