After gearing up for the day with a perfectly proportioned breakfast of whole wheats and pastries at the charming Gaige House in Glen Ellen, drive about five minutes north to Beltane Ranch, a working ranch set on a picturesque hillside overlooking Sonoma Valley. Beltane prides itself on its beautifully maintained flower and produce gardens, boasting homemade jams and syrups. Their olive oil orchards are organically farmed and hand-harvested, giving a quite literal meaning to ‘farm to table.’ How many B&B’s have you stayed at whose owners provide home-grown olive oil with your fresh loaf?
Above Glen Ellen, Jack London State Park incorporates Jack London’s beloved Beauty Ranch, historic buildings, and miles of hiking trails. It is both a relaxing rest stop and a fantastic destination for walkers.
