Spotted / California / Boonville / Boonville Hotel


I am so enamored with this hotel. It somehow reminded me of my travels through the French and Italian countryside. There is something so sweetly genuine about this place—from the bright and cheerful rooms and cottages, the sitting room with the little wood burning stove, the patio out back where meals can be enjoyed under a garland of lights on a warm night, but most notably, all the warm and friendly people who welcomed us throughout our stay. Not to mention their fantastic dinners and breakfasts. Dinner was one of the best meals I’ve had—served ad hoc family-style using the freshest ingredients, including those grown and picked right from their gardens.

And ohhh… the scones! I even got a sneak peek into their kitchen and was pleasantly surprised how very much it felt like home back here, too.
