ACTIVITIES: THINGS TO DO IN SONOMA COUNTY

Sonoma County has much to offer during your visit. Here at the Inn, we invite you to enjoy our swimming pool, picnic areas, gardens, massage service and library of films, novels and historical books.

Nearby, dozens of family wineries are open for tastings. The town of Healdsburg has a public plaza with boutiques, antique shops and restaurants. The town of Cloverdale is quiet and historic. According to a 2009 survey conducted by Budget Travel magazine, Cloverdale is one of the 21 Coolest Small Towns in America. Criteria required that the town be on the upswing, a place beginning to draw attention because of quality of life, arts and restaurants, or proximity to nature.

Visitors could choose to hike in the Armstrong Redwood forest, bike through vineyards, ride a horse on the beach at Bodega Bay, canoe or kayak on Lake Sonoma or down the Russian River, skydive or hot air balloon over the valleys.

WINE TASTING

Sonoma County has hundreds of wineries open to the public. From the Inn, guests can visit the Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley, Anderson Valley wineries and those along the Russian River. Many will pour you a taste of their current releases without a charge. Some will ask for $5 to $10; others will only charge to taste older vintage or limited production wines, which they typically refund if you make a purchase. Some wineries have small shops with food and a place to picnic.
