Why Stay At Applewood Inn and Restaurant
Michelin-star dining plus close proximity to over 100 wineries, nestled under towering redwoods and less than 2 hours from San Francisco.
A Sonoma landmark built in 1922; Belden House is one of three Spanish Mission-inspired buildings constituting the tranquil adults-only Applewood Inn. Rustic river rock fireplaces in the lounge invite guests to linger while dining room and kitchen are also home to the inn's cooking school. Rooms in the historic villa feature exposed brick walls and views of Redwood trees alongside modern amenities like flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi access. Lodging in the newer buildings is airy, decorated in warm hues of sage green and terracotta with gas fireplaces or Jacuzzi tubs and offers an outdoor patio or balcony. Lounge on the tiered terraces surrounding the outdoor pool and hot tub or arrange an aromatherapy massage in the spa room. Chefs at the award-winning on-site restaurant cook up creative Californian and French-accented cuisine using produce from the property's own vegetable garden.
Take advantage of the complimentary a la carte breakfast, which comes with mimosas.
For lunch, ask the restaurant to pack you a gourmet picnic basket with freshly baked bread. ($55 per basket for two)
Arrive at Charles M. Schulz Sonoma County Airport (STS) which is approximately 16 miles from the inn. Anticipate about 25 minutes of travel time.13555 Highway 116, Guerneville, California, United States

Why We Love Russian River Valley
One of the most recognized viticultural areas in the country, the Russian River Valley is dotted with charming small towns, and green rolling hills perfect for hiking or horseback riding.
Where to Drink: Cozy Russian River Pub 7 miles away is filled with nostalgic mementos. Bring your permanent marker for the sign-in wall. Aside from the selection of ice-cold beers (try the 1554 Enlightened Black Ale), the place is famous for its chicken wings, blue cheese dressing and pub burgers. Drinks for two $8.
11829 River Rd, Forestville.
Where to Shop: Get a glimpse of Old California when you mosey by turn-of-the century buildings that house locally owned specialty shops and antique stores at Railroad Square Historic District in Santa Rosa.
Outdoor Excursion: Experience the pastoral scenery of Sonoma Valley from aloft as you leisurely float over picturesque wineries, Redwood Forests, and the Russian River Valley. 1-hour flight from $225 per person.
