The wine country doesn't get any classier than this.
A member of the Thompson Hotel group, this bed-and-breakfast is also a luxury resort of the finest quality. While it retains the unpretentious charm of a small family-run home, its high style and remarkable service have made it one of the most critically acclaimed hotels around. When guests aren't relaxing poolside or snoozing in a creekside hammock, they can retire to the polished elegance of their rooms --- all of which are stunning in their simplicity. Each features clean whites and creams accented by rich wood furniture and sleek modern fixtures. Bamboo and rattan pieces add an organic element and conjure the exotic energy of French Indochina. Many rooms have fireplaces and whirlpool tubs. Private cottages are also available, as are eight new Japanese-style spa suites inspired by the ancient inns of Kyoto. The latter feature granite soaking tubs for two overlooking Calabasas Creek, floor-to-ceiling sliding glass walls and private gardens. A complimentary three-course breakfast is served every morning. Be sure to check out downtown Glen Ellen, a short walk away.
