  • Unique setting in a national park and former US army base

    Spa, cookery classes and natural beauty on your doorstep

    Close to San Francisco’s nightlife and Napa’s wineries

Smith extra

$50 resort credit; SilverSmith and GoldSmith members also get a breakfast for two per night booked

In the know

Also need to know:

Dog-friendly rooms with bed and bowls are available for US$75 extra. The hotel hosts regular cookery classes, with visiting guests invited to share their expertise. Aside from the superior treatments, the serene spa has its own tea bar, where guests can order frozen Mayan cacao, goji berry and lime coladas and freshly made soup (but don't worry, sweet tooths can still enjoy a pastry-fuelled afternoon tea).

Packing tips:

This is a land of Indian Summers, and it’s often far warmer in September and October. A handbag-size sweater will always be useful – the fog can roll in at any moment.

Dress code:

Wartime wardrobes: khaki for Mr Smith, victory rolls for Mrs Smith.
