Very beautiful place! Huge rooms and very lovely people. Will go back ASAP. The only negative part was the restaurant was closed on the day we were there, it looked really good too. We talked to a lot of people in town and they all love Stone and Embers.

We stayed here one night on the advice of friends we were visiting in Philo ( they have no room for guests so we needed to book a room somewhere). We were very pleased with the experience. We chose the dog-friendly Garden View suite and found it very comfortable and classy. I do not understand the complaints below as we...

What a great little find in the Anderson Valley! We were tasting over at Golden Eye and this place was suggested to us by Janelle and was a great recommendation! Cute little place and was everything we needed for a wonderful little stay. The owner even set up the little heater to make sure the room was comfortable when we...

We stayed at The Madrones over New Years and can't say enough good things about it. Our only regret was only being able to stay two nights! The grounds and rooms were gorgeous, the bed was amazingly comfortable, the pizza place (Stone & Embers) and tasting rooms located on-site were fantastic. This was our first time at a boutique inn...

We stayed in the Faller's Cabin just last weekend for the Inaugural Passport event in Anderson Valley. With 28 wineries participating, we chose the Medrones for the location, because we didn't want to be on the road after a full day of tasting. The check in was fun, with Cindy greeting us and she took us to the cabin which...

A group of girlfriends and I stayed here in October for my birthday. The place is not a bed and breakfast or hotel, but something in between. The rooms we were in were gorgeous and we had a shared deck between the 2 so it was easy to get back and forth between the rooms. We stayed in "the kitchen"...

I wanted to love this place after reading an article in the WSJ...but I think the article was a couple years old and the place is just not being kept up. Its a very cool idea...older estate, made into rooms. I, however, did not think the decor was great (kind of mix/match), I could hear the guy snoring in the...

Liz; Thank you so much for taking the time to post about the Madrones. We asked our innkeeper and she recalled you, noting that she did spend time trying to assist you with concerns while on site. She mentioned working with you prior to your arrival as you requested a room with balcony, fireplace and view of the vineyard, which...

At The Madrones in Philo, you'll pay a premium price for a less than premium experience. It feels as though the guest experience is an afterthought, especially considering the $300 per-night price tag. On our first night the WiFi went down around 10:30 at night. It was still down when we woke up the next morning. Wifi is essential because...

Dear “Assassin”ator ;-) We are so sad to hear your birthday experience was not what you hoped. At least you were able to enjoy the bubbles with left in your room to celebrate. At the Madrones, we are always striving to improve our guest experience and ensure it is a place where people feel comfortable and want to return. Your...

Didn't stay here but we did stop en route to Mendocino, via Anderson Valley Brewery for an hour of wine tasting. 4 different tasting rooms, very intimate, engaging and friendly experiences. You get the chance to talk about the wines, the two tastings were free (though we did buy wine ), with Signal Ridge being our favourite! Recommend!

We've stayed at the Madrones since it first opened with a few rooms, plus one winery on the property. Now there are 4 wineries, a wood-fired oven and cafe, more rooms available and an antique gallery. All the rooms are tastefully appointed with stylish furniture and artwork set in a serene setting. The attention to detail is apparent throughout the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As seen in Sunset, Food & Wine and Departures Magazines, The Madrones is an Agriturismo style destination which offers just four luxurious guest quarters for travelers who seek something unique and intimate in rural setting. This is not a hotel or B&B, so the service is very low touch...no daily maid service is provided. Perfect for travelers looking for a place to get away without someone hovering over you. If you are looking for accommodations rich in amenities, such as spas, restaurants, room service & breakfast, this is probably not a good fit. Surrounded by vineyards and wineries in the heart of the Anderson Valley, this Mediterranean styled compound which was originally a home and private business has garnered prestigious national awards and recognition. The property has four separate tasting rooms offering local small lot wines, as well as a curiosity store, cheese counter and private gardens. ... more   less
