Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, California
This charming property is located right off Highway 101 just a few minutes outside Santa Rosa, but it feels a world apart. It is part of the renowned Ferrari-Carano winery, and has some of the most beautifully landscaped grounds in the area, with fountains, an overall old-world feel, and a two-mile jogging trail around the vineyards. The 44 rooms, though a bit bland in some cases, have warm decor, wood beams, high-tech amenities, and either a balcony or a private patio. There’s a full-service spa and a couple of nice freebies, but the highlight is definitely the acclaimed John Ash & Co. restaurant.
