    • Cottages of Napa Valley

      Napa: The Cottages of Napa Valley

      Two rows of cheery Provençal-style cottages facing a shaded lawn and garden dotted with fountains outdo Napa’s famed luxury hotels on hospitality, throwing in complimentary wine, snacks, and a breakfast basket of Bouchon Bakery pastries delivered to your porch. They’re also affordable, as far as Napa prices go, providing the sort of privacy and personal touches you can’t find at larger resorts.

    • Farmhouse Inn

      Russian River: Farmhouse Inn and Restaurant

      We love the fresh, luxurious rooms and friendly vibe at Farmhouse Inn, between the vineyards of Sonoma and the coastal redwoods. The restaurant is a can’t-miss and the small spa beautifully redone. Refreshingly, instead of charging for every little thing, the place piles on extras like a big breakfast, a s’mores bar, and a bath-salts bar.

      7871 River Rd., Forestville, CA

    • Gaige House

      Glen Ellen: Gaige House Inn

      The top-end Zen suites are to die for, but our favorite part? A long soak in the tub carved from granite, polished inside to a high, smooth shine. If you decide to leave your room (you may not), you just might have Sonoma’s backroads to yourself.
      www.gaige.com
      13540 Arnold Dr., Glen Ellen, CA
      $$$$

    • H2Hotel

      Healdsburg: H2Hotel

      The Hotel Healdsburg team has opened a more casual, more eco (and less pricey!) spin-off down the block. H2hotel replaces the traditional room service and spa with loaner Dutch cruising bikes and an all-purpose “Receptobar” for checking in, caffeinating, and stocking your own fridge. Star mixologist Scott Beattie mans the bar, whipping up cocktails with fresh ingredients like citrus plucked from the hotel’s living roof. Our favorite touch: room to store and, if necessary, fix your bike in the basement.

      219 Healdsburg Ave., Healdsburg, CA
      $$$$
      707/922-5251

    • Healdsburg Modern Cottages

      Healdsburg: Healdsburg Modern Cottages

      For a wine-country getaway that feels both homey and stylish, nab a stay at the Healdsburg Modern Cottages. The four mini homes clustered around a pool are just a stroll away from the shops and restaurants on the town square. Each has a sitting room (think Bertoia wire chairs and iconic bubble lamps) with a flip-switch fireplace, plus a private patio.

    • Solage Calistoga Resort

      Calistoga: Solage Calistoga Resort

      The sister property to Auberge du Soleil, Solage is designed for a younger crowd with (slightly) shallower pockets. The to-die-for spa offers 120-minute Mudslide experience for two ($215), a sophisticated take on the century-old tradition of the Calistoga mud bath that includes a bake in a spacious sauna with a specially blended cocktail of mud and essential oils, a soak in the area’s famous thermal waters, and a swaddled rest in a “sound chair,” which pulses to the New Age music on your headphones.

    • Hotels in the West

      Russian River: West Sonoma Inn

      The main action of this 32-room hotel in Guerneville, a few miles off winery-packed Westside Road, is its lovely pool and wine garden and the winemaker tastings it hosts on some Saturday evenings. The pick of the budget-friendly litter is room 128, which looks out to Korbel’s vineyards.
      www.westsonomainn.com
      14100 Brookside Ln., Guerneville, CA
      $$; 2-night minimum
