Bed and breakfast inns are often wrongly stereotyped as a place filled with tacky rooms and an abundant amount of flowered or cat-themed wallpaper. However, when a bed and breakfast is done right, it’s anything but tacky. In fact, inns can be quaint, charming, and offer you the best of both worlds: a beautiful, historic house accompanied with modern amenities and personalized service. Ready to plan your next getaway at a bed and breakfast? Check out eight of the best inns that the U.S. has to offer.
1. Beltane Ranch
Found in Glen Ellen, California, this bed and breakfast overlooks 1,300 acres of protected land. The historic Beltane Ranch is surrounded by gardens, vineyards, and orchards. The two-story inn features a beautiful wraparound porch and a private cottage that has its own garden, according to Food & Wine. There are five spacious rooms in the main house in addition to the cottage. The rooms, which are tastefully decorated with antiques and original local artworks, include private baths, outdoor entrances, and seating areas. The ranch provides fresh eggs for guests at breakfast and also produces olive oil and grass-fed beef. Guests staying at the 1892 ranch house also have a private tennis court at their fingertips and absolutely breathtaking views (it overlooks the Sonoma Valley.)
“In the heart of the wine country, nearby historic wineries, extraordinary restaurants, boutique shopping, and magnificent parks and preserves provide endless opportunities for exploration and adventure,” per Beltane Ranch. Rooms start at $150, Food & Wine writes.
