Memorable Meetings in Stunning Sonoma

Our unique, upscale estate hotel meets the needs for social or corporate groups of many sizes and preferences. Whether you’re planning a social group like a family reunion or birthday party — or a more corporate C-suite offsite, board meeting, training, or reward travel event — our intimate scale ensures that you will receive the best service before, during, and following your visit. Groups of 5 rooms per night or fewer generally will not require a contract. Larger groups and those with catering and audio-visual needs will arrange an agreement customized to your preferences.  

For work, the Stavrand boasts gigabit fiber optic internet, sun-soaked meeting space in the Sun Room or Stavrand Hall, opportunities for indoor or outdoor break-out areas, and incredible food & beverage plus luxe accommodations to infuse some fun and comfort into your meeting.  Advisory board meetings, executive retreats, and corporate off-sites come together safely with room for distancing, fresh air, and freedom from hallways and elevators.

For play, the Stavrand’s many amenities will keep you relaxed or entertained right here at our 6-acre estate. The host team and owners look forward to connecting you with delightful off-site adventures that will cause you to fall in love with the Russian River and Sonoma Valley at large.

Chef’s Meadow

25,000 sq. ft.

This inviting, upscale-yet-rustic, 25,000 square feet of outdoor space is flanked with redwood trees, and arranged in three zones:

  • Century-old pear and Gravenstein apple orchard trees
  • Chef’s garden boxes and barn backdrop
  • Grassy, flat lawn surrounded by wildflowers

The Bower

9,000 sq. ft.

Named for its dramatic forest backdrop, this upper level of the property offers over 9,000 square feet of space nestled into a private edge of the estate.

Stavrand Hall

1,000 sq. ft.

This building was shaped in the image of the original Belden family barn. Its modern construction was further improved by a renovation overseen by local restaurant icon Crista Leudtke. Nearly 1,000 square feet of flexible space includes an enclosed patio that serves as an oversized window overlooking the property and its courtyard.


900 sq. ft.

At the heart of the hotel, this central space is defined by the beautiful white guestroom buildings and their Talavera blue accents. Two firepits and casual seating may be reconfigured to provide rows of seating in this 900 square-foot area. Alternately, this area works perfectly for dinner or mingling.

Sun Room

500 sq. ft.

French doors separate the main living room of the Belden House from its more casual Sun Room space. Originally an outdoor patio, the room now features dramatic windows overlooking the Stavrand’s redwoods, and puts standard board rooms to shame. The airy and charming space retains its own wood-burning fireplace made of historic river stone. The communal table hosts 8-10 guests comfortably for an intimate meeting.  When rotated 90 degrees and extended, the table can accommodate 17 guests.
