The first person to guess closest to the price of the room — without going over — wins an IndependentTraveler.com duffel. Here’s the room:
Here are three things you should know before you post your guess:
-This room is in a private cottage that has a working fireplace, a king bed, a private garden patio and a two-person jetted tub.
-This hotel is located in a famous wine-producing county north of San Francisco.
-Rates, which are based on double occupancy, include a complimentary full breakfast, wine and appetizers, and free Wi-Fi.
