Sonoma: Stay
Written by Rod Smith

Sonoma: Stay

Sure, you can spend lavishly on that once-in-a-lifetime occasion in Sonoma—Kenwood Inn and Spa’s private villas are pure luxury right down to the custom-made scented candles—but you don’t have to. City types may appreciate Healdsburg’s eco-spare H2hotel, with its living roof and loaner bicycles. Want to spend less than $200 a night? Can do if you head for the country, to places like Guerneville’s Boon Hotel, with its seems-like-they-should-cost-more cottages tucked into the redwoods. Or, what the heck, why not camp in the redwoods and save your dough for wine, or dinner at Cyrus?
