Luckily before heading off from San Francisco on a quick vineyard tour, we met some people who pointed us in the right direction for both hotels and vineyards. This hotel (approx. 2.5 hours north of SF) was a gem... We arrived late, people were already eating in the restaurant/bar area, and the comfortable attitude of the staff who welcomed us was just what we needed. Three of us traveling, sharing a room, all tired and two of us had a cold coming on - so we needed some nurturing - and this is what we got. The room wasn't big, but quite sufficientt - bathroom clean and good size. The hotel bar had locals sipping some of the delicious wines from the region - and we were offered some local cider to start off the night. We had a choice of eating in (by the fire) or crossing the road to a recommended restaurant - as you can imagine the option to take up home cooking for $44 per head was a winner - and we were not unhappy. Food was delicious. Slept well and journeyed on the next day.
