The 2.5 acre ranch farmhouse was built in 1906 by Louis E Ridenhour and was once part of a much bigger 70 acre parcel that was farmed and worked by his family. For the last 150 years, the McPeak, Korbel, Guerne and Ridenhour families very much shaped the Russian River Valley. Before their arrival in the mid 1800’s, the Pomo tribe called it their home for thousands of years.
Fast forward to the mid 1970’s when a pharmacist and his partner from Corte Madera, CA bought the property and began the process of converting it into an Inn. It was aptly named the Ridenhour Ranch House & Inn. A lot has changed since becoming a hospitality property but the best parts remain intact. Plus, western Sonoma County’s ecological diversity is world class and supports our love of wine, food and cannabis along with all the amazing places to hike, paddle and ride your bike. When deciding to purchase an Inn, you are technically paying for the buildings, land, furnishings and equipment. But some places have something it’s hard to put a dollar amount to. This is one of those special places and we both knew that right away. We took over as the operational stewards in October of 2019.
Mine + Farm Inn has a naturally designed landscape ecosystem that is vibrant and diverse with flowers, fauna, birds and other wildlife, allowing for a natural outside-inside flow.
