Located centrally in Anderson Valley in the tiny village of Boonville, the Boonville Hotel is what would best be described as country luxury. Set just off of Highway 128, it houses 10 comfortable rooms in the main building and two larger suites in a separate, creek-side home. We stayed in the Bungalow, which is one of the two suites.
