This place is so perfect that we changed our plans and stayed a fourth night. When you are in Sonoma you do not plan to spend a lot of time in your accomodations. The Beltane Ranch changes that. We managed two wineries a day and then went "home" to sit in the shade of ancient oaks watching hawks, hummers, various songbirds and the light changing over the vineyards and the mountains to the west. It is as relaxing as you can imagine. (There is a hammock if sitting becomes too much effort.) Also, there are lovely walks out the back door on little trafficked farm roads. The owner, manager and chef made us feel like guests rather than customers. Beware the breakfasts! They are wonderful and you will not want lunch.
