Making the most of a "French Laundry" weekend

Hello all,

First, advance apologies if I missed the thread that covered this. I went through a number of them and was not successful in finding an answer.

My boyfriend and I are celebrating a big accomplishment in my life and he wants to take me to the FL (I know, terribly lucky girl!).

We would like to make a three day, two night weekend trip out of this venture to this infamous restaurant. Neither of us has been to the area, including Napa Valley. We would love to explore the area but have heard to stay away from Napa Valley and go to the surrounding areas instead of a wine country experience.

I would love recommendations for bed&breakfasts, other places to eat, sites to see, vineyards to try. Any help would be most appreciated.

PS. Although the FL is on the itinerary, we actually have to budget conscious. . . thanks again!!

Thanks in advance, WS
