No. 38 Farmhouse Inn, Forestville, CA
Driving north from San Francisco for about 1.5 hours builds the anticipation of arriving at this boutique hotel amid hundreds of wineries. Six knowledge concierges are happy to share the best of Napa and Sonoma wine country, while three bellmen are ready answer requests—quite a staff for the inn’s 18 rooms. Seasonal flowers add B&B personality while private bathrooms with jetted tubs and saunas or steam showers make this country inn feel like a five-star resort.
