Fall is in the air...can you feel it? Time to put away the flip flops and break out the sweater scarves and mukluks. Or Uggs. Or whatever you are bundling yourself in this time of year. Also time to look forward to the holiday festive season and prepare for the onslaught of food, family, fun and more food! There is nothing
I have always wanted to get into yoga (not the hot one thank you) but could never bring myself to sit still for more than a few minutes without going through the multiple lists in my head, desperate for a piece of paper that I can write down brilliant but fleeting ideas. So when I was shamed into attending the Tibetan relaxtion yoga class
Golden Globe-winning actress Tippi Hedren, star of Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds" (and mother of actress Melanie Griffith) made her annual pilgrimage to Bodega Bay over Labor Day weekend to sign autographs and raise awareness for the preservation of endangered animals all over the world, namely big cats. Equally as fetching and almost as celebrated is our own Yvonne Corbin, Guest Services Associate at
Ahhhh...Timber Cove Inn. The ocean is everywhere you look. Crashing waves, spectacular sky. The smell of the sea with distant sea gulls coasting lazily over the surf. Beaches, Parks, trails galore. Get the picture? And you decide you need to go to the gym. Well if you MUST then know that there is a a cozy little corner carved
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
