What a gorgeous Winter season we have had this year ~ This valley feels so sacred & we who live here, never take it for granted. Every season is beautiful as it gently merges into the next one.

The Inn has brought us many first time to Sonoma guests as well as many of our repeat guests who are so dear to our hearts. We have seen many couples get engaged, celebrate honeymoons, anniversaries, and special birthdays which we get to be part of in some special way.

As the valley is filled with trees flowering and fields of mustard grass getting very high in their brilliant yellow, as the hills are now green, I find myself remembering so many beautiful places I have lived and the season of Spring filling my spirit with a lightness and
deep joy.

Feeling grateful to know that Sonoma is a sacred jewel tucked away from fast pace living ~ after walking the beach for three hours recently & driving roads filled with beauty in the long shadows of late afternoon ~ I am slowing down more to take in the willow trees
with delicate early leaves gently swaying ~ the first bud forming on our favorite rose bush at the Inn ~ every single day I have an amazing staff to thank, people who come to the Inn and appreciate the tranquil energy ~ another day to love & laugh …
