SingleThread Farms is a stylish, innovative inn and exquisite 52-seat restaurant in the heart of the Sonoma town of Healdsburg. With just five rooms, one of which is a 700-square-foot suite, service is attentive and warm.
THE INN AT NEWPORT RANCH
Fort Bragg, CA
The Inn at Newport Ranch is a distinctive property on a stunning 2,000 acres of coastal land 10 miles north of Fort Bragg. The handsome main building strongly reflects the heritage of the area’s redwood lumber history, with stunning 30-inch planks used in the flooring of the impressive living/dining room.
THE HERITAGE HOUSE RESORT
The Heritage House Resort is a storied property that figured prominently in the 1978 film “Same Time, Next Year” with Ellen Burstyn and Alan Alda. Opened as an inn in 1949 in an 1877 farmhouse, the 48 accommodations are favorably set on 37 acres overlooking a rugged inlet south of Mendocino.
The Madrones is a charming nine-room property that was originally the studio and office space of a designer. The main building could be right out of Tuscany and, in addition to four rooms, houses a popular restaurant (under separate management), Stone and Embers, and tasting rooms for wineries.
