A charming pink-walled inn with an intimate atmosphere, the Applewood Inn "feels like your own private Italian villa," says Lonely Planet. The hotel is a quiet, adults-only property, set in pretty flower gardens and surrounded by a wooded glade in the Russian River Valley.
In the summer, guests can laze on the pool deck, while colder months offer opportunities to snuggle up by the lounge’s river-rock fireplace. There's also a small spa for on-site massages and many Sonoma wineries are within an hour’s drive. The large breakfast menu is locally sourced (including eggs from hens on property), and the restaurant is "a destination dining spot" according to The Michelin Guide. Its French-influenced Californian dishes include cocoa nib-crusted rack of lamb and spiced pumpkin crème brulée.
Rooms in the original 1920s building have heavy-beamed ceilings, antique furnishings and attractive views. The rest -- in a newer annex -- are larger and have country-style furnishings, some with fireplaces. There are also three suites in the modern Casa di Campo, with private terraces and bathtubs or whirlpools in the bathrooms. Do take note: The property is small and office staff leaves at 6 p.m., so be sure to phone ahead if you plan to arrive late.
