On a knoll sheltered by towering redwoods, this romantic three-building inn is a short drive from downtown Guerneville. The rooms in Villa Casa Grande, a Sonoma County Historic Landmark built in 1922, have charming touches like an exposed-brick wall or views of redwood trees. The suites and rooms in the newer La Piccola Casa and Casa di Campo are larger and airier, decorated in sage green and terra-cotta tones. The chef at the excellent California-Mediterranean restaurant
uses produce from the inn's garden or from nearby farms. Arrange massages and other treatments in the spa room.
