Vintage Inn in Yountville has wrapped up renovation of all 80 guest rooms, suites and villas. A color palette of white and blue grey and natu- ral wood tones carry out the country French décor that meshes with early California accents. Guest rooms are decorated with original photog- raphy that captures the beauty of California wine country and was shot by local Napa Valley artists. Accommodations feature intimate seating areas, custom-built armoires, cozy wood-burning fireplaces and private balconies or garden patios. Vintage Inn and sister hotel Villagio Inn & Spa are a part of the 23-acre The Vintage Estate, which also includes Spa Villagio and V Marketplace, a lifestyle shopping collection housed in the former 145-year-old Groezinger Winery.

Who says you can’t have a meeting without some pampering mixed in? Several hot springs resorts in the U.S. Mountain West can accommodate smaller meetings complete with lodging, function space, din- ing and soaking. Some even have on-site spas and other standout features like an ice museum or microbrewery to include on an itinerary.

 

Erase any vision you might have of a dude ranch, especially the “City Slicker” version. For the purposes of this story, let’s use the name ranch resort and picture a big dose of vision and thousands of acres for both herds and people to roam. It’s a fairly different option, but one with similar friendliness and the Western spirit of a dude ranch.

 

To say Wisconsin is having a moment would be an understatement. A statewide renaissance resulting in plenty of new developments, impressive renovations and entrepreneurial ventures has been years in the making and shows no sign of slowing anytime soon.
