Fess Parker Wine Country Inn & Spa, Los Olivos, California
The late Fess Parker, better known to some for his portrayals of Daniel Boone and Davy Crocket in the 1950s and ‘60s, started this quaint country inn—complete with a restaurant and wine shop—in 1988. Having fallen in love with the peaceful and decorative landscape, the actor bought the 714-acre-ranch and converted it into luxurious four-star accommodations.
Having also purchased nearby vineyards, Parker asked his adult children to join him in this venture. The Parker family’s first vineyard was a five-acre experimental Riesling, planted in 1989.Today, the family now creates award-winning Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs, Syrahs, and Viogniers—from the more than 700 acres of vineyards they now own.
Guest rooms at the Fess Parker Wine Country Inn & Spa are spacious and each room is uniquely decorated. Fess’s wife, Marcy, was in charge of interior design, though her signature stamp in each room was that all guests would have the luxury of their own fireplace, robe, and slippers. In addition to the guest rooms, there is also a spa, offering a variety of facial and body treatments, as well as a pool and hot tub.
