The long awaited Fort Ross Vineyard tasting room is OPEN! Located just 15 minutes from Timber Cove Inn, it is the ONLY Tasting Room with an ocean view and a vineyard (the closest vineyard to the Pacific Ocean in California). As with Timber Cove Inn, half the fun is the journey with a beautiful drive up Meyers Grade Road, through a beautiful set
It took me several trips to Timber Cove Inn (Just a mere 15 minutes north of the fort on the Pacific Coast Highway) in order for me to see the historically significant and National Historic Landmark Fort Ross since it is only open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. But the wait was definately work it. Perky Park Interpreter Lindsey Elliott start us off
When I asked chef Ben where he got this amazing Berry Crepe recipe he said "I made it up". Now why can't I just MAKE UP recipes like this. Maybe because my culinary school consisted of a bunsen burner in college that graduated to a microwave. Not-so from young Chef Ben. He goes the tasty, delcious, yummy slow cook route. And we'
Lot's of Hub-Bub going on at Daily Candy these days about Guerneville. What to do while you are there, where to eat and drink. Shopping. Of course WE have been in-the-know about this cool place forever since it is on River Road on the way to Timber Cove Inn. The two hotest spots in town are BIG BOTTOM MARKET and
If you take the River Road route to Timber Cove Inn you'll meander through Guerneville with LOTS of great stops to make in town but if you have a little time and your hiking shoes (I wore my flippy floppys so it's not serious hiking) "Armstrong Redwoods" is a must-do. It's maybe 10 minutes west of Guerneville but worlds away from
You just never know what you are going to see on your way to Timber Cove Inn. I took the Petaluma route on my last visit and was merrily driving along when I practically drove through a herd of wild…goats? This may not be a pull-the-car-by-the-side-of-the-road-and-snap-a-picture moment for some of you but for this city girl it was a joy to watch.

It's a spectacular day in Sonoma. Sun is brilliant. Sky is deep blue. You and your besty (or sweety)
Is there anything better than toodling down the road with no particular place to go and stumbling on something really extraordinary? I was meandering down to Gualala (love that name, can't say it without an extra "la" or two) during my last trip to Timber Cove Inn and looked over to see...THIS. Out in the middle of really, NOWHERE, well
So there is this amazing place called "Stillwater Cove Regional Park" just up the road from Timber Cove Inn. I began my hike one morning a few weeks ago at just the wrong time as it was not quite light at 6:30 AM. It felt very Fern Gully-ish as the path was shrouded with HUGE trees and
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
When I asked Chef Ben for one of his favorite dessert recipes he sent me this within minutes. Obviously it didn't take long to think about the ONE dessert that is not only a crowd pleaser but is relatively easy to make. Beware, once your grateful family and friends taste this you will have raised the bar. Going forward Fig Newtons
New General Manager Keith Hill got a nice surprise on Saturday when Emmy award winning journalist, television host, business reporter (the list goes on-and-on) Kym McNicholas stopped in for a visit. Accompanied by her parents Bill and Marilyn McNicholas, long-time fans of Timber Cove Inn, Kym enjoys the relative quiet of Sonoma and the Inn as her grueling schedule keeps her going non-stop.
