Take a hike.

Jun 27th 2013

I was treated to an amazing thunder and lightning storm show at Timber Cove Inn during my last visit. An amazing flashing, cracking lightshow over the ocean that was worth a few hours of lost sleep. My biggest concern was a 9:30 appointment that morning for a hike with my new friend Margaret Lindgren, hiker extraordinaire with "Unbeaten Path Hiking Tours".

Jun 26th 2013

As most origins of cocktails go, there are a few versions of how the Sidecar came into being. One story, as told by David Embury in The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks (1948), says that it was developed in a Parisian bistro during World War I by a friend who rode to the favorite bar in the sidecar of a motorcycle. Which bar this was

Shaken, not stirred.

When Ian Fleming published, “Casino Royale” in 1953, he had no idea what he had started. Not only did he create what became the enormous James Bond franchise we know today, but inadvertently created a rather tremendous cocktail, The Vesper. It was written like so:

"A dry martini," he said. "One. In a deep champagne goblet." Then Bond specifies his order

A little bird told us

May 13th 2013

Amazing creatures call the Sonoma Coast their home and now thanks to a recent act of kindness we have started a list of birds that have been spotted from the Inn. This very detailed list was given to us by a lovely couple from the Audubon Society. It allowed us to start a Pinterest Board on these lovely creatures so

There was a great TV show that ran from 1954 to 1963, (The year Timber Cove Inn was born!) called "Father Knows Best". Very popular. Much like the formula sit-coms of that era, the Anderson family was picture perfect with a spotless home, Jim in a suit most of the time and always coming home from work to a beautifully cooked meal with eager children, Betty,

You've made the get away plans and dinner reservations are set. Card, flowers, giftie, the works. It is going to be a Valentine’s Day extravaganza. The takeaway? Memories to last forever on that great visit you planned at Timber Cove Inn. So we thought we would add a bit of frosting to the cake, a little cherry on top, a
