Save Place
4048 Sonoma Hwy, Napa, CA 94559, USA
This refined 28-acre resort set in the rolling hills between downtown Sonoma and downtown Napa makes guests feel relaxed the moment they check in. The vistas are unobstructed from the resort’s pool areas, and many of the property’s 94...

1450 1st St, Napa, CA 94559, USA
The Napa Valley loves its charming inns and luxury wine-focused resorts, but it was only a matter of time before a hip, young boutique hotel opened with a trendier style (and price tag) to attract all those San Francisco start-up types. The first...
Save Place
1314 McKinstry St, Napa, CA 94559, USA
One of the most convenient places to base yourself in Napa, particularly if you're in town for the BottleRock festival, is the Westin Verasa hotel. Set downtown, it's walking distance to shops, restaurants, tasting rooms, and the fair grounds...
Save Place
1910 1st St, Napa, CA 94559, USA
The Beazley House is a mansion and carriage house built in 1902 and located on one of Napa's finest streets. It's within easy walking distance of Downtown Napa, making a convenient base for exploring the city's 30 Zagat-rated restaurants and wine...
Save Place
755 Silverado Trail N, Calistoga, CA 94515, USA
Swimming pools should be mandatory in a place with as many sunny days and awesome views as Napa Valley. Solage resort in Calistoga, on a vast swath of valley floor, has one of the very best. From the expansive pool deck and lounge area—where you...
Save Place
Sonoma, CA 95476, USA
Personally, I think this looks like a set from the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, but alas, it's not. This is actually a common area at the oh-so-enchanting Cottage Inn and Spa located in downtown Sonoma. Surrounded by over 200 wineries, this...
Save Place
25 Matheson Street, Healdsburg, CA 95448, USA
San Francisco summers may be frigid, but just 70 miles north it bakes. Hotel Healdsburg's jewel of a pool offers a welcome refuge from the strains of walking around leisurely and eating like a king.
Save Place
1166 Asti Ridge Rd, Cloverdale, CA 95425, USA
The KOA campground just outside of Cloverdale, California, is one beautiful place to relax. And when you don't feel like just kicking back, you can hop in your car and experience top-notch wine tasting at Alexander Valley's many wineries nestled...
Save Place
1650 Soscol Ave, Napa, CA 94559, USA
On a recent wine country weekend in Napa Valley, my friend and I stayed at the River Terrace Inn. The hotel is a great base from which to explore downtown Napa, but its restaurant, Terrace Court, is also worth visiting. The comfort-food inspired...
Save Place
6526 Yount St, Yountville, CA 94599, USA
One could argue that Yountville has earned the reputation as Napa Valley's theme park — a Wine Country Disneyland, "Yount Vegas"— with its many Tuscan-style villas and Parisian bistros. "It's just like being in Italy" you can hear the tourists...
Save Place
1620 State Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101, USA
Santa Barbara was one of our favourite towns on our California road trip. We hadn't really planned to spend any time there because we knew we couldn't afford it - everyone had warned us of the price of food and accommodation in this rich person's...
Save Place
1260 Channel Dr, Santa Barbara, CA 93108, USA
My stay at the Four Seasons Biltmore was relaxing and refreshing and the service was impeccable. My husband and I had an evening escape from L.A. We got in late and enjoyed tapas and a glass of wine at the TY Lounge. It was bustling with couples...
