Hotels in Sonoma

This sprawling, opulent resort, set just a few miles north of downtown Sonoma, might as well be its own private island; its vast array of on-site amenities could lead you to completely forget about the surrounding wine country.

Co-owner Liza Graves works with 35 estates in Sonoma and Napa valleys, from historic farmhouses and vineyard cottages to mountainside manors, and caters to wine lovers by arranging vineyard tours, private tastings, and picnics with winemakers.

At the Sea Ranch Lodge—a rambling, 1970s-era complex with weathered cedar-plank walls that blend into the surrounding banks of sea grass—the only guest room without an ocean view offers a private hot tub instead.
