SingleThread Farm is located on a stretch of five acres between the Russian River and San Lorenzo Ranch. The restaurant and inn are run by chef-owner (and Fat Duck alum) Kyle Connaughton, who concepted a multi-course Japanese-inspired restaurant, plus an intimate five-guest-room-inn designed by AvroKo, all under one roof. Much of the menu inspiration comes from Connaughton’s own farm a mere five miles away, which supplies everything from veggies, herbs, flowers, honey, and eggs to the kitchen. The approach is very Japanese, and guests can choose from one of three 11-course tasting menus (including vegetarian or pescatarian options). The exacting attention to detail threads through the guest rooms as well—they’ve got kind of California-meets-Japanese-ryokan vibe from the Toto toilets and binchotan charcoal toothbrushes in the bathroom to the matcha served in a beautiful Japanese mug come breakfast.
