Art, where you least expect it.

Oct 06th 2013

By now you know that the Sonoma coast offers some of the most eye-popping scenery in the world. You may have even discovered some favorite hiking trails, hidden tasting rooms and tucked-away eateries along the beaten path. But, you MAY not know that  world-class artists call the Sonoma Coast their home. I was fortunate to meet Bruce Johnson recently at his "studio" not

Vintage + Vino

Jul 10th 2013

To those of you who who attended the first Annual Vintage + Vino event held at Timber Cove Inn on Sunday June 30th, lucky you!  Picture perfect weather, vintage cars with a dramatic Pacific Ocean backdrop and wine pourings from wineries in the Fort Ross Seaview AVA including Annapolis, Flowers, Fort Ross, Hirsch and Wild Hog. Hopefully you had a chance to visit with

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". Not wanting

A Picture is worth 1000 words

Feb 12th 2013

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

Blowin’ in the wind(mill)

Jan 30th 2013

For all you smarties out there: What is the difference between a “Windmill” and a “Wind Turbine”. Give up? One of them looks like it is ready to take flight with a few disturbing alien creatures on board, and the other is a graceful nod to the past when our forefathers built these beautiful structures to garner energy for

Life is a detour

Dec 19th 2012

Face it. Detours are usually time consuming, annoying and get in the way of all the really important things you have to do today. But sometimes, life's little detours send you on journeys that are inspiring and eye-opening. Like the next time you travel up to Timber Cove Inn. As is fairly typical this time of year (winter) there are parts of the

Along the beaten path

Jun 27th 2012

Quick. Name the three Fairy Godmothers in Snow White.

Trick question. There WERE no Fairy Godmothers in Snow White, they were in Sleeping Beauty, silly. Flora, Fauna and Merryweather (why Merryweather? Do you ever wonder?) So whenever I think of Flora and Fauna I think of Sleeping Beauty and Timber Cove Inn and Sonoma County. Why you must wonder? Because the 

Living on the edge

Jun 08th 2012

If you have ever been to Timber Cove Inn it is likely that you may have seen a few errant cows along the road. The first time I came across them I literally contemplated advising the authorities that an entire herd was going to be tumbling off the cliff if they didn't send someone out this instant to rescue them. Of course when

Gimme s’more

Jun 07th 2012

Sun is just starting to set. You have had an amazing dinner at Alexander's (Chef Ben is brilliant) and a few glasses of Sonoma wine that you just might have to purchase a bottle (or three) for the wine closet. The view of the ocean is killer from the toasty firepit and yet there is something missing. What IS it? Great company (check)

Bufano Brilliance

May 28th 2012

In the summer of 1962, when Richard Clements had just set his sights on 800 acres north of Fort Ross for homesite development and a stone and redwood inn overlooking the ocean, world famous sculptor Beniamino Bufano began work on an eight-story statue — the largest he'd ever done. It would be incorrect to say that Clements commissioned the Bufano work. That's not the
