Once a 300-acre vineyard and ranch, this 19th century estate has been transformed into the luxurious MacArthur Place. The inn is set among lush gardens filled with original sculptures, fountains, a heated pool and large chess set. Flowers and herbs grown on site are utilized in treatments at the Garden Spa. The property’s barn has been restored and is now one of Wine Country’s best steakhouses, Saddles, awarded for its cuisine and cocktails.

All guests receive daily complimentary continental breakfast, evening wine-and-cheese reception, parking, wireless internet, DVD movies from the library, and access to the heated pool, whirpool and fitness center.

A color palette of soothing browns and deep yellows decorate the public spaces and rooms. Guests can stay in rooms or deluxe king suites, all individually designed. Deluxe suites offer sitting areas, original art from local Sonoma artists, fireplaces, porches or balconies, and hydro therapy tubs.

The inn is four blocks from historic Sonoma Plaza and a short drive from Napa Valley and Sonoma vineyards.

The staff at the Inn and at Saddles restaurant were all very accommodating and curtious. Made our stay even more enjoyable. The grounds are beautiful even in the winter when there are no flowers in their gardens. We were upgraded to a nicer room without even asking as we were visiting in the off season.

The place is outdated. It lacked ENERGY. It seems to lack pride in itself.

The inn was great. Working with Travelocity was dreadful. We got the flu and tried to reschedule on Saturday before our stay which was to start on Monday. Travelocity was inflexible even though both my husband and I were sick. This was my Christmas present from my husband and it was expensive. We went anyway. How sad. Travelocity said we would just lose our money if we did not go.
