If you want to take a time out while the leaves are still flaming red and gold on the vines, Conde Nast Traveler readers have helped you winnow down the best places to stay in your own backyard.
The premiere travel magazine puts five Sonoma County hotels on their list of the Top 35 inns of Northern California. Another six are in Napa Valley and two in Mendocino.
Tops in Sonoma is the Hotel Healdsburg at No. 9. Glen Ellen’s Gaige House tied with the Healdsburg Inn on the Plaza for No. 16 while the Vintner’s Inn of Santa Rosa placed 28 and MacArthur Place in Sonoma, 31.
First in reader’s minds within the entire Bay Area is the storied and romantic Auberge du Soleil in Rutherford. Other Napa Valley hotels making the cut include The Carneros Inn between Sonoma and Napa, Lavender in Yountville, Bardessono in Napa, the Hotel Yountville and Andaz Napa.
Beloved spots on the Mendocino Coast included The Cottages at Little River Cove and Stanford Inn by the Sea.
