Located in the laid-back, Old West-style town of Occidental, this refined bed-and-breakfast is ideally located between the juicy vineyards of Sonoma Wine Coutry and the stunning beaches of cliffs of the Sonoma Coast (both under 30 minutes by car).

With 16 guest rooms and a two-bedroom cottage, The Inn at Occidental is an intimate place with quirky, folksy décor (think colorful quilts, antiques and rooster pillows) that immediately make guests feel right at home. And unlike many wine country inns, this one is both child and pet friendly.

A stay here comes with many perks, one of the biggest being a free wine-tasting passport for two that can be used for tastings at nearly 120 Sonoma County wineries. Can’t decide which ones to try? Tell the innkeepers your vino preference and they will map out an unforgettable wine trail experience, something that’s not easy (or cheap) to do if you’re not from these parts.

Breakfasts here are indulgent, with signature items such as orange crème-filled French toast, creamy polenta with fruit compote, homemade granola and a hearty potato torta. A nightly wine and cheese reception is also complimentary, highlighting all the local goods.

The rooms are all decorated differently, but each comes with an overstuffed down bed, a fireplace, Frette bath towels and free Wi-Fi. Some have a private deck, but a few rooms don’t have televisions (which could be a good thing).
