Honeymoon in Napa/Sonoma

If anyone can help us with advice on a place to stay in winecountry for our honeymoon we would be greatful! With all of the choices and the high prices, we want to be sure we are going to get what we pay for. We are more interested in the Inn's rather than the smaller B&B's.

If anyone knows anything about Harvest, MacArthur Place, Kenwood or any other suggestions, Thank You!

We stayed at MacArthur Park last October for a night and found it very nice, but if I had a choice, I'd choose the Gaige House in Glen Ellen- a very special and sophisticated property. I haven't been to - but would like to visit Milliken Creek Inn in Napa. Both properties offer different options for wonderful dining (try Bisto Jeanty in Napa or The Girl and the Fig in Sonoma).Both properties have websites showing lodging options.
Best of luck!

We spent our honeymoon in Napa at the Zinfandel Inn and it was lovely! The owner was very nice and helpful. It was nicely located. There was a "chef" who came in every morning and would cook the most delicious breakfast. We stayed in the Chardonnay Suite which was HUGE and nicely appointed. There was a big fireplace and a whirlpool tub.

The Gaige House was my favorite of the several places I've stayed in the wine country. Be sure and reserve the Gaige House Suite if you choose this inn. Also visit Matanzas Creek Winery near there. Sorry-I'm not familiar with the other places mentioned.

We've stayed at the El Dorado in Sonoma many times over the last 15 years. It's perfect for newly marrieds (queen sized beds, semi-canopied), it's right on the town square, good restaurant.

On honeymoon, we went around the square, buying a picnic basket at one shop, cheese at Sonoma Jack's, bread at the french bakery, fresh stoneground mustard at one shop, etc. then went to Glen Ellen (now Beringer's) and picnic'd in their circle of redwood trees.

Took friends back 10 years ago and sent each couple out to find one picnic item each, and duplicated picnic surrounded by redwoods. Not only do they still talk about it, their kids are now replicating it on their honeymoons.

Don't miss the Chalone-owned vineyard that makes Dynamite Merlot by appt only. Also Frog's Leap and Folie a Deux. Well worth seeking out and making appointments, avoid the crowds at all the rest except Ravenswood.

Have fun. Not that you wouldn't on a honeymoon!
