There are countless reasons Budget Travel named Cloverdale, California, the #2 Coolest Small Town in America in 2010. But for some, it was written in the stars: "I didn't realize what a difference the clear, dark skies make," one resident told the The Press Democrat. "You can look up and see the stars. It's just amazing."

Clear your head amid the constellations with this week's Escape to Auberge on the Vineyard, a Healdsburg-area B&B where the sky's the limit—and the views of Alexander Valley vineyards are nonpareil.

You'll get a two-night stay for two in one of three Victorian House rooms, Sundays through Thursdays ($192) or Fridays and Saturdays ($215) from now to June 30 or from November 1 to December 31. Or, opt for a two-night stay for two in one of four Carriage House rooms, Sundays through Thursdays ($255) or Fridays and Saturdays ($290) from now to June 30 or from November 1 to December 31.

The 1910 Victorian House is divided into three rooms—the Hermitage, Margaux, and Lorraine—and each offers plentiful window seating with views of the valley, period furniture, heirloom antiques, and luxe linens, plus plush towels in each private bathroom.

Meanwhile, the Carriage House, split into four rooms—the Sancerre, Vouvray, Echezeaux, and Montrachet—was added to the property in 1980 and boasts a large common area with vineyard and mountain views, as well as a west-facing gallery, fireplace, flat-screen TV, and butler's pantry with complimentary drinks and snacks.

You and your moonstruck companion will be treated to a daily French-inspired three-course breakfast at 9 a.m. in the dining room of this Queen Anne Victorian inn. Past guests have called the experience "mind-blowing" and promise that "each breakfast surpassed the next."

Post-pastry, use your two-day Master Wine Tasting Pass at 120 area wineries in Northern California Wine Country, where "eating and, above all, drinking are cultivated as high arts," says Fodor's.

Then, head back to Cloverdale to use your $50 credit toward an astronomically soothing massage for two at Main Street Spa.

This week's Escape proves our theory that you can while away in Wine Country—without the Big Bang on your wallet.

  • "The most enjoyable bed and breakfast we have ever visited. Cloverdale [is] slower paced, quaint, and unassuming. Roxanne is simply a wonderful hostess and a very accomplished chef. ...each breakfast surpassed the next."
