The Philo Apple Farm
18501 Greenwood Rd., Philo, California, 95466, USA
Set in an orchard of organic heirloom apples, the three cottages and one guest room here are tasteful, inviting, and inspired by the surrounding landscape. It all feels very Provençal: the elegant country linens, the floral paintings adorning the walls, the gardens full of herbs and vegetables outside your door. On some weekends the cottages are reserved for people attending the highly respected on-site cooking school—two of the owners founded the renowned Napa Valley restaurant The French Laundry—but midweek a room is nearly always available. The farm stand sells the orchard's apples and pears in season, plus delectable apricot, plum, raspberry, and other jams, including a superb orange marmalade.
