Best Areas to Stay in Sonoma County

Each season brings a bounty of activities to enjoy with loved ones when you gather in Sonoma County. Located about 45 miles northeast of San Francisco, wine country is an easy escape from the City by the Bay. These are some of the best areas to stay in Sonoma County to connect with nature, raise your glass with friends, and get some major rest and relaxation.

Best Areas to Stay for Families

Sonoma County welcomes everyone in the family. Flamingo Resort & Spa's family-friendly amenities include a children's pool, outdoor tennis court and basketball court to keep even the most energetic little ones busy. It has the classic charm of the '50s with all the contemporary amenities important to today's guests. For "Peanuts" fans, the Flamingo has several five-foot-tall statues of Charlie Brown and the gang throughout the hotel, and the Charles M. Schulz Museum is just a short drive away.

Best Areas to Stay with Pets

Pamper your pooch at one of Sonoma County's pet-friendly hotels. Your furry friends are warmly welcomed (and encouraged) to stay at resorts like Hyatt Regency Sonoma Wine Country and The Sandman Hotel. Hyatt Regency Sonoma Wine Country welcomes pets with a bed, bowls, and yummy treats to ensure their stay is just as comfortable as yours. Get your pet fee waived when you book through The Sandman Hotel's "Sit, Stay, Donate Today" package, which contributes $5 to the NorCal Boxer Rescue for each package booked.

Best Areas to Stay for a Luxurious Getaway

Sonoma County delivers on just about every luxurious amenity you can think of. If you're looking for fine dining and lavish spas, Sonoma County has an array of enticing options. Farmhouse Inn offers a romantic and rustic getaway that includes the on-site Farmhouse Restaurant, the hotel's Micelin-starred restaurant. Vintners Inn, a four-diamond resort surrounded by 92 acres of lush vineyards, is also a wine country favorite. Exceptional amenities include a complimentary half bottle of wine upon arrival and vineyard, courtyard, or garden views from every room.

Best Areas to Stay for Outdoor Activities

Sonoma County isn't just about the wine tastings. There's plenty of activities for those who like to venture outdoors. Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa gives guests access to Sonoma Golf Club and offers docent-led daily hikes. It also serves as the perfect base camp for exploring vista points and nearby parks. Fairfield Inn & Suites Sebastopol is also a great place to stay in order to access plenty of local adventures. Hike through a whole grove of redwood trees at Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve, explore spectacular Pacific Coast beaches at Bodega Bay, or kayak in the Russian River watershed.

Best Areas to Stay with Meeting Spaces

While Sonoma County is a fantastic destination for leisure, it's also a great location to host meetings and events because of its natural beauty and hospitable atmosphere. Doubletree Sonoma Wine Country offers some of the largest meeting spaces in wine country with 18,000 square feet of indoor space and 32,000 square feet of outdoor space. Looking for a great group rate? For every 20 rooms paid, Flamingo Resort & Spa's meeting package offers a variety of perks tailored to the interests of your attendees.
