A nod to the cowboy life at an appealing bed-and-breakfast.
This B&B may be one of the wine country's best-kept secrets. Set on the historic, working Beltane Ranch in the Mayacamas Mountains, it offers an authentic opportunity to get away from it all. Guests are welcome to explore miles of hiking trails, and horseback riding can be arranged with a nearby outfitter. The property can host up to 175 guests al fresco, making it a popular spot for summer weddings. The bright-yellow, New Orleans-style plantation house was built in 1892 and resides in gardens that are as bright as its façade. Five guest rooms are airy and hospitable, each with its own entrance and queen bed, and there is a Garden Cottage for those seeking privacy. The cottage features its own entrance and an open-beamed bedroom. Adirondack chairs furnish its private garden. Complimentary full breakfast can be taken on the wraparound porch or in the dining room. Favorite activities at this property include relaxing in a hammock or lounging on the porch with beautiful views of the vineyards.
