Published on: April 17, 2012

When you travel, one of the toughest things to rectify is the trading down to lesser accommodations than you’re accustomed to at home. It’s supposed to be a vacation but sometimes you have to wonder why you’re paying for less than your beautiful house and favorite, cozy bed. There’s a special place that’s been transformed into a hotel but once was a regal estate out among the wine grapes of Sonoma County. MacArthur Place Hotel (macarthurplace.com) has been artfully restored with touches that make you want to stick around. The estate reminds one of historic inns you’ll find in Vermont.¬† Wine country sampling, gourmet dining¬† and exploring the beautiful countryside make for a gracious, much-needed escape. Don’t forget to see the charming downtown with Sonoma Mission and Carnegie Library building!

  • Blocks from downtown Sonoma
  • Luxuriant foliage of hundreds of trees
