In Sebastopol, the best place to stay is the expensive but lovely Avalon, a Luxury Bed and Breakfast (11910 Graton Rd., 707/824-0880, www.avalonluxuryinn.com , $375). With only three rooms, the Avalon offers the ultimate in private and romantic accommodations. All rooms have king beds, a hot tub or access to the garden hot tub, a fireplace, air conditioning, and many luxurious amenities.
Because Avalon was purpose-built as a B&B, each room is actually a suite, with plenty of space to spread out and enjoy a longer stay. At breakfast time, you’ll be served an organic feast, with produce purchased from a local CSA and a loving attention to the details of preparation.
