Having stayed 2 nights at Beltane Ranch we enjoyed the ranch which has so much more to offer than just nice rooms. The flower garden in front of the house, the lawn with comfy chairs, tennis court and even 2 hiking trails around the grounds with vineyard and horses let you feel like being part of the sonoma country live. The breakfast is 2 course with homegrown produce and will be brought to your room/terasse or in the community room if you like. You can also enjoy the homemade wine (Sauvignon Blanc, Beltane Ranch) with USD 29 not a real bargain but tastefull and somehow speacial to enjoy the sunset and the wine you can see from your porch. We experienced nice and friendly staff at welcome desk, breakfast and the gardens around. Even though this place is lacking a bit of the typical personal charme and more being managed like a smaller hotel we felt almost like home. Glen Ellen is just 10 mins drive from Sonoma city but all the big vineyards around and really good restaurants and winebars in Glen Ellen are even closer and less touristic. Will come back!
