Styled after a Tuscan villa, with stucco walls, meandering gardens, and fountains and waterfalls at every turn, Kenwood Inn is by far Sonoma Valley's most beautiful and romantic property. Even when the inn is full, there's a marvelous sense of seclusion. You'll rarely see other guests—or hear them—thanks to all that gurgling water. Each of the 27 rooms and suites is different, but most have oversize antique wooden armoires, wood-burning fireplaces, sumptuous fabrics, and heavy wooden privacy shutters on the big French doors. Televisions are conspicuously absent, keeping your attention squarely on your companion. The facility itself is gorgeous, but a recent change in ownership—to nonhoteliers—stripped the rooms of many of their extra amenities, such as wine and fresh-cut flowers. Service has taken a hit as well, but the sheer beauty of the space still makes it worth a look. Hopefully the new management will pay more attention to detail and restore the property to its former level of near-perfection.

From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
Surrounded by hundreds of acres of vineyards, rooms at this "quiet Mediterranean villa" have fireplaces, custom Italian furniture, and "extremely comfortable beds." The grounds have three courtyards as well as saline swimming pools, fountains, and a pond. Spa treatments incorporate all-natural products and feature vinotherapy. At dinner, expect "a fabulously prepared Italian menu" utilizing produce from local farms. "The service is stupefying in its execution," as reflected in its perfect score.
