Beltane Ranch, Sonoma, California
Set in the heart of the Sonoma Valley north of San Francisco, the Beltane Ranch is a family-run working farm producing wine, grass-fed beef and olive oil. Built in 1892, the romantic verandah-wrapped shingle house is one of the area's most charming places to stay. There are five airy guestrooms decorated with antiques and heirlooms and a cottage looking out over gardens of organic vegetables, flowers and orchards.
