California Wine Districts Gear Up for Summer With Two New Stays


Napa Valley: Play house in an arts-and-crafts-style home, or at least in one of its eight rooms to let, at the new Blackbird Inn in downtown Napa. A refurbished 1910 gem, the Four Sisters Inns property touts fireplaces, private decks, spa tubs, and unique craftsman furnishings. Park your car upon arrival; the shops, galleries, and restaurants of Napa lie just a short stroll away. From $125. (800) 234-1425, www.foursisters.com

Sonoma County: Sporting woody, early-California looks, the Lodge at Sonoma Renaissance Hotel & Spa provides all the country comforts of a private lodge, including in-room fireplaces and private patios. Its 182 rooms are located in a central structure and 18 cottages on the nine-acre compound. Take a day’s-end soak in natural hot springs at the spacious spa, followed by an indulgent meal at the local, vintage-friendly house eatery, Carneros. From $249.
