Lodging in Mendocino’s wine country can be found at The Madrones. Just off of Highway 128, the hotel pulls off that perfect Californian rustic luxury. The rooms—guest quarters as well as special suites at the back of the property—are each individually accented with stunning antiques that owner Jim Roberts has collected over the years. The Kitchen suite (in what used to be the owner’s home) is refined and comfortable. The beds are plush and fitted with the softest sheets (which are conveniently sold in the lobby), with French doors that open up to a private balcony. Plan on sleeping in.
