Fodor's Expert Review The Madrones Guest Quarters

9000 Hwy. 128, Philo, California, 95466, USA Fodor's Choice

The centerpiece of a 2-acre spread that includes tasting rooms, a gift shop, a spa, and a restaurant, the nine eclectically decorated accommodations here range from apartment-like studios to duplex cottages, some with patios or balconies facing landscaped gardens. The peaceful setting and on-site diversions encourage lingering, but should you desire to venture forth a half dozen wineries (among them Goldeneye next door) are within a mile, and Hendy Woods State Park and its redwoods are not much farther along. Luxurious furnishings, ample bathrooms, and layouts that include sitting areas make for a smooth transition to country living, as do perks like flat-screen TVs, Nespresso coffeemakers, microwaves, and refrigerators stocked with breakfast items. Though thoughtful, the hospitality here is laissez-faire, so if you need pampering or the full bed-and-breakfast experience, this place might not work for you.
