Fodor's Expert Review Gables Wine Country Inn

4257 Petaluma Hill Rd., Santa Rosa, California, 95404, USA Fodor's Choice

Guests at this circa-1887 Gothic Victorian inn set on 3½ bucolic acres slip back in time inside high-ceilinged, period-decorated pastel-painted rooms, some with four-poster beds and all with comfortable mattresses and high-quality sheets. Owners Pam and Larry Willis are renowned for three-course gourmet breakfasts that will power you for a full day of wine touring—made less expensive with Wine Passports good for free or discount tastings. The Gables has a countryside feel, but it's less than 4 miles from downtown Santa Rosa's Railroad Square Historic District.
