Fodor's Review

Toile de Jouy screens, gilt-framed paintings, comfy Napoléon III covered-in-jute armchairs, timeworn armoires, and tables adorned with Shaker baskets make this extraordinary inn—run by native Californian owner Gloria—House Beautiful (and prolonged stay) worthy. Each chamber is a delight: a bleached redbrick chimney and red-and-white calico accent one, while ceiling beams and a French Provincial four-poster bed warm another. Two separate cottages offer cooking

facilities and sleep up to four. All this noted, you might spend more time by the fountain in the leafy garden—a Monet canvas come to life—or the immensely stylish library, the ultimate welcome mat for this delightful auberge.
