Rooms all have window seats with views of local landmark Fitch Mountain, Foss Creek (whose restoration the hotel has participated in), or a bamboo-filled interior courtyard. The public areas include a creek-side deck. The room rate includes a continental breakfast.

This Relais & Châteaux property takes the prize for opulence with guest rooms, spacious and elegant enough for French nobility, furnished with 18th- and 19th-century antiques and reproductions, canopy beds dressed in luxe linens, and gas-burning fireplaces.

Montage Healdsburg

$$$$ | 100 Montage Way, Healdsburg, CA, 95448, USA Fodor's Choice

Its bungalow-like guest rooms deftly layered into oak- and Cabernet-studded hills a few miles north of Healdsburg Plaza, this architectural sensation that opened fully in 2021 significantly upped Sonoma County's ultraluxury game. Starting at 599 square feet—with studios and suites running from 948 to 1,178 square feet and the Guest House checking in at 4,600—the spaces are bathed in soothing whites and earth tones. Original works by local artists grace the walls, with floor-to-ceiling windows revealing heritage oaks and grapevines, with Mt. St. Helena in the distance. All guest quarters have outdoor living spaces with a fire pit, a daybed, lounge chairs, and a dining table. The public areas captivate all the more, especially the pool and the lead restaurant, Hazel Hill, whose semiprivate dining room juts into the oaks like a treehouse. The wow factor of the design notwithstanding, Montage is ultimately about its setting and the opportunity to connect with nature. To ensure that guests feel truly unplugged, they don't drive their vehicles while at the resort but rather are ferried about on golf carts.

Pros

  • Vineyard views from spa, restaurant, and swimming pool
  • Outdoor living spaces with daybeds and firepits
  • Recreational options on-property or nearby

Cons

  • Expensive year-round
  • Hefty resort fee
  • Car trip required for off-property visits

An 1875 Victorian with a storied past and a glorious colonnaded wraparound porch anchors this boutique Russian River property affiliated in 2022 with SingleThread Farms. Isabelle Simi, whose father and uncle established Simi Winery, which she ran for many years, lived in the home for more than three-quarters of a century.

$$$$ | 131 North St., Healdsburg, CA, 95448, USA Fodor's Choice

A remarkable Relais & Châteaux property a block north of Healdsburg Plaza, SingleThread is the creation of husband-and-wife team Kyle and Katina Connaughton, who operate the ground-floor destination restaurant and the four guest rooms and a suite above it.

All the accommodations have gas fireplaces, 14-foot exposed redwood-beamed ceilings, and wet bars with European coffeemakers and tea kettles. Heated tile floors, roomy rain showers, marble-trimmed deep soaking tubs (except in one room), and automated Japanese toilets (heated seat, of course) count among the luxurious touches in the spacious bathrooms, done mostly in calming whites and off-whites. Room rates include a multicourse breakfast as thoughtfully conceived as the restaurant's evening menu.
