Bring your appetite--gourmet breakfast and complimentary wine tastings will ensure you leave this antique-laden B&B fully satisfied.
Home to the first winery in California, Sonoma County still retains its rustic roots today and has yet to be overrun by the bells and whistles that have swallowed other areas in wine country. In towns like Geyserville--known as the Wine Capital of Sonoma County--you'll get individual attention in relaxed tasting rooms, including the likes of Silver Oak, Francis Ford Coppola, and Clos du Bois, to name a few.
Upon arrival at Hope-Merrill House Bed & Breakfast Inn, settle into one of five rooms: the Victorian, Carpenter Gothic, Bradbury, Vineyard View, or Sterling Suite. Each room offers a queen-size bed and private bathroom; some feature a Jacuzzi, others have a clawfoot tub, and still others boast double-headed showers for two. Several rooms have fireplaces or TVs, and all are appointed with lovingly maintained antique furnishings and handmade Bradbury & Bradbury wallpaper. Despite the provincial ambiance, complimentary Wi-Fi is available throughout the inn.
With only 2,000 permanent residents, Geyserville is nothing if not personable--and the innkeepers are no different. They'll spoil you with a four-course gourmet breakfast each morning, provide concierge services at no charge, and set you up with a wine passport for complimentary tastings at more than 100 wineries throughout the county, courtesy of Wine Country Inns of Sonoma.
