antique stove, located in our Farm View Suite, is just one of many
unique room furnishings at our Inn. You'll spend hours looking at
all our "treasures" and most probably be as amazed as
most at the variety of "knick-knacks" about the place.
main "Chalet" farmhouse was built in 1940 by the Swiss
family Reichmuth. Before moving to Sonoma, the Reichmuths
had an interest in the old William Tell Hotel in San Francisco,
which later burned down. The Sonoma property was never really
run as a working farm, since the Reichmuths were always more interested
in music and dance; one brother, Alfred, was an amateur painter.
His work can been seen on the walls of our main house. The
Reichmuths also were involved in a local Sonoma dance hall called "Little Switzerland."
main farmhouse has four guest rooms. The two guest rooms downstairs
share a bath and parlor in a suite arrangement. The rooms
can be rented separately or together. Each accommodation at
Sonoma Chalet is unique. From antique stoves to patchwork
quilts, our furnishings add character and charm all their own to
each room. Many rooms feature decks and views of the Sonoma
Valley. All our rooms have private baths except two of the
four rooms in the main house, which share one bath and a parlor.
Room reservations require an advance deposit of two nights rental to be charged to a credit card one month prior to the arrival date. A two night minimum stay is usually required on the weekends during the high season.
On holidays and special weekends, we sometimes have a three night minimum
stay requirement. Reservation cancellations must be received at least
seven days prior to the reservation date for a refund of the deposit
unless we are able to re-book the room. In all cases, there is
a $10 per room cancellation fee. We accept children only in the private
cottages. Except for special periods, Sonoma Chalet is normally closed
on Tuesday and Wednesday nights.
