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.

Who has been to the Charles M. Schulz Sonoma County Airport? I nominate it for the cutest airport on the planet. Lucy, Linus, Snoopy and the gang are alive and well from the life-size version of Lucy's "The Doctor is In" structure to the fantastic bronze sculpture of Charlie Brown and Linus. And the best part is it
Look at this vista from an Ocean View Room at Timber Cove Inn. I either want to relax on the patio with a glass or two of a nice Sonoma Pinot Noir and enjoy the sea breeze or snuggle up on the bed with the latest John Grisham book, a bowl of Cheez Doodles and spend the entire afternoon looking at the Pacific Ocean
When was the last time you went wine tasting in Sonoma County with the Pacific Ocean as your backdrop? The lovely folks at Fort Ross Vineyards are putting the final touches on the first (and only) tasting room in the newly formed Fort Ross-Seaview AVA. I had the pleasure of a personal tour last week and oh MY this vineyard and farmstead-style Tasting Room
Honestly, it's way more fun than it looks. I have played croquet as a young girl in Los Altos and later during travels to Cabo San Lucas, England and Napa Valley. Now the folks at Timber Cove Inn have made it available to guests on the lovely event lawn overlooking a vast and spectacular Sonoma coastline and Pacific Ocean. Origonally made popular
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
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)
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
