On a slope of the Mayacamas range a few miles from Glen Ellen, this 1892 ranch house, shaded by magnificent oak trees, contains charmingly old-fashioned rooms, each individually decorated with antiques and original artwork by noted artists. Rooms also have exterior entrances, and some open onto a wraparound balcony ideal for whiling away lazy afternoons, perhaps with a glass of the estate-grown Sauvignon Blanc. A bountiful breakfast, included in the price, incorporates
produce from the on-site gardens, as well as eggs from the resident chickens. To walk off breakfast, you can stroll trails winding through the ranch's vineyards and gardens.
