Set on 1.5 lushly landscaped acres—and equidistant from both Jack London State Historic Park and a wildflower preserve—Gaige House is a Zen-style oasis smack in the middle of wine country. The property (which has housed, over the past century, a schoolhouse, a bordello, and a private home) has two parts: an original 1890 building with 15 rooms, and eight new stand-alone spa suites. All are decorated with Asian-themed minimalist chic: dark-wood platform beds, rice-paper screens, black-granite baths. But the spa suites are larger and have private entrances to the courtyard gardens filled with magnolia, cypress, and bamboo. There’s a heated outdoor pool and spa services that can be enjoyed in your room, on a creekside deck, or in a cabana surrounded by greenery.
