Whether you stay in a studio room or a suite, you’re guaranteed luxury at Meadowood Hotel. It’s ideally situated to explore Wine Country and is comfortable for long stays (we felt as though we never wanted to leave). Started as a private club in 1964, Meadowood was purchased in 1979 and turned into the hotel and resort that it is today. The white-washed cottages are reminiscent of Nantucket, except they are tucked into the woods instead of the beach. Croquet, tennis, golf, hiking, and swimming are all at your fingertips in the sprawling 250-acre valley where Meadowood is located. Paths meander through hills and forests, and you could get lost wandering around the sprawling property. Fix the damage winter (and long hours in the kitchen) have done to your skin at the spa, where you can indulge in body wraps, exfoliation, and massages. Rising Star Chef Christopher Kostow cooks seasonal, creative food that is worth the stay (and the trip) alone.
