Our favorite places to stay in Sonoma Valley include a favorite bargain motel, a luxurious inn, and a century-old hotel
Picture it: a turn-of-the-20th-century main house with standalone cottages facing a well-tended garden along a bend on a Sonoma country road. The innkeepers bring in neighboring winemakers for personalized tastings, but guests are also encouraged to explore the 80 wineries within close reach. And the gourmet two-course breakfasts served overlooking old oaks and olive trees are not to be missed. 12 rooms from $239.
