We are coming to Sonoma County for three nights mid April. I need help deciding where to stay. I am super confused on the various locations and which is best. The three hotels I am looking into are Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn, The Farmhouse Inn in Forestville, and Hotel Healdsburg. Anything else I am overlooking?
We have been to Napa many times and are now coming back to Sonoma because we love Pinot Noir.... It appears the majority of Pinot Noir vineyards are around Forestville and Healdsburg, but they seem to be quite a drive between the two. I like them all for various reasons....
So where should we stay and why? I just want someone to tell me what to do at this point. Ha! I am just overwhelmed. Is it best to pick out the specific vineyards we want to go to and then pick hotel based on which is closest? We also want to be somewhat near restaurants for dinner each evening.
Also, I really love La Crema and would like to visit, but do they only have a tasting room in Healdsburg? No winery visit?
Thanks sooo much! I really appreciate your time!
