This so called ranch is in a good location on pretty property outside glen Ellen and ten minutes from Sonoma. The breakfasts were delicious. The views stunning. That said when I am paying this amount per night in excess of 300 I would expect the tennis racquets to be in respectable condition, the court not to be full of cracks... More

My (newly wed) husband and I saw the Ranch online and just knew we had to elope there. We booked online around 8 months prior to the big day, and Joy, who deals with weddings and elopements at the ranch, lived up to her name in terms of helping us get things arranged from the UK. She always had recommendations... More

The Beltane Ranch is quite the unique experience. It is very serene and it has beautiful and endless fields of grapevines and olive trees. The 6 room inn is rustic yet very romantic. Breakfast on your own private veranda overlooking the vineyard was such an amazing experience. Some of the vineyard family lives on the property and have many dogs... More

Beltane Ranch is a one-of-a kind retreat. Located off the beat and track of Sonoma, it provides simple, yet elegant lodgings, amazing food, and hospitality. The staff is charming, chatty, and full of ideas and stories. One story highlighted Julia Child's visit to this lovely place. (they framed her letter) My husband and I keep returning to this magical place.... More

My friend and I stayed at Beltane (Room #2 that has a queen bed and a cot, which I slept on) and definitely recommend it. It's everything you picture in staying in wine country, with great food, wine (really!), and hospitality. It's an older style but has all the modern comforts. The people are so nice! And they give really... More

The relaxing, escaping experience starts as you drive up the long, winding lane to the garden surrounded house. We could not get enough of the fabulous scenery and enjoyed walking around the beautiful gardens. Cookies are left in a jar for the taking whenever you want. You are pretty much left on your own which we enjoyed. A couple of... More

This must be the last down to earth place to stay in Napa/Sonoma. The Inn is lovely. We have stayed here about 6 times over the years and have seen it evolve. Okay, you are unplugged here: no TV. Which is fine with me. We love staying on the second floor. The balcony overlooks a beautiful flower garden. We like... More

This was my first time to the area, so I don't really have much to compare it to. The entire place was amazing and every detail seemed so well-thought out!

The Beltane Ranch is situated in the Valley of the Moon, one of the most gorgeous places on Earth, in my opinion. The views from the bed and breakfast are absolutely stunning.

Beltane Ranch is a fabulous B&B. Joy welcomes you at the door as you arrive on this beautiful ranch. They have their own vineyards, olive trees and gardens.
