Garden Grill is a great spot to enjoy breakfast or lunch on the deck. Even bring your dog if you’d like. Black bean burger is a must try(you don’t have to be a vegetarian to enjoy it)

A Short Drive Away

 

Rivers End is about a 20 min drive and has the most amazing views of the sunset and delicious food. I would recommend going early and sitting on the porch and enjoying the sunset before your meal. You definitely need reservations here. It can be on the fancy side or if you’ve just come off the beach that’s fine too!  Wonderful staff!

Café Aquatica– no reservations needed.  They have the best clam Chowder and baked goodies.  Sit on the deck and watch the seals swimming around.  One of our Favorites!

10439 CA Highway 1, Jenner CA 95450  (707) 865-2251

 

 

The Birds Café is another favorite.  Named after the Hitchcock thriller movie “The Birds”.  They make amazing fish tacos- so fresh and deep-fried artichokes!! You have to try them! They have a great deck to sit and eat and of course to enjoy a nice glass of wine.

Corks Restaurant at Russian River Vineyards.  This is a short drive from us to a small town called Forestville.   Beautiful setting with outdoor dining available.  Great food and wonderful wine.   Russianrivervineyards.com/

 

 

Summer’s full of Amazing Folks

20Aug

Our summer has been filled with amazing people and eventful days here at West Sonoma Inn & Spa.

We had the pleasure of filling our rooms with half and full Vineman competitors from July 11-13 and July 24-26th. They come in with their competitive smiles and hard working faces and bring a lot of great energy in to the Inn and our little town. Reminding us all that we are capable of anything if we set your minds to it and are willing to work for it! They definitely give us all the motivation to work towards something some may think is impossible. They are living proof that hard work pays off, Whether they brought home a win or even finished the race. Every one of our guests walked with heads high after battling the heat and conquering miles and miles of Sonoma county roads and river.

Family Reunions at West Sonoma Inn & Spa

We have also had the luxury of having family reunions take place on our property. Some we are aware of that come year after year, and some who surprised us with their large groups full of love and excitement at check-in. All have been a great adventure for all of our staff to be able to intermix with the family excitement at the pool and bbq’s in the courtyard.

The Veneruso family sent us a postcard and wonderful pictures of their parent’s 50th wedding anniversary that they hosted on our property June 18-23rd. Tara Veneruso brought her family together, some who had never met before and surprised her parents with a few days of family festivities to celebrate family and love. Working with Tara to help plan her event and then seeing  all the excitement in everyone when they met at the lobby was great enjoyment for all the staff at the Inn.  West Sonoma Inn Thanks Tara Veneruso West Sonoma Inn Party Guerneville

Lazy Bear

Another fun event we have been able to be a part of for years now is Lazy Bear. Music, pool parties and bon fires were hosted on our grounds and we had friendly bears and friends surrounding the Inn for five fun packed days.  The pool parties went from 11am-5pm then the bon fires started 9pm-2am. We were lucky enough to have DJ eur-O-steve here and BearOmeter to pump up the parties and keep the excitement rolling for all five days. The Bears decorate the Inn and make themselves at home which creates our own Bear family that we can’t wait to be a part of again next year.   CAM01692-1.jpg  photo 1 The next big event in Guerneville will be the Jazz and Blues Festival on Johnson’s Beach, September 20th and 21st, Which will be filled with fabulous talent such as Boney Jones, Larry Graham and Trombone Shorty. If you haven’t already booked your stay with us, you should check your schedule, get your tickets and book your room. When you stay here at West Sonoma Inn you can park your car and walk to Johnson’s, then retreat to our private escape on the edge of town  with our heated pool and beautiful landscape to unwind after the event.

Russian River

25Feb

blogrussian

The climate and landscape in our part of Sonoma County combine to make it an ideal location for outdoor activities. Unlike the sometimes oppressive heat of the inland valleys, we are very fortunate to have warm sunny days that are tempered by cool breezes from the nearby Pacific Ocean.
The West Sonoma Inn & Spa is just a four-minute walk from Johnson’s Beach, where you can sunbathe, picnic with friends or rent a kayak or canoe to paddle on the Russian River.

Hike Among the Redwoods or on the Sonoma Coast
Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve, a unique grove of coastal redwoods, is just two miles away. Hiking amidst the 2000-year-old, 250-feet-tall trees is an experience not to be missed. We suggest a pleasant stroll on the forest floor, an activity that is also wheelchair accessible. More challenging trails are available for the energetic, and horseback riding is available in the park as an exceptional alternate way to experience the majestic scenery.

Beach horseback riding is available a short drive away at Chanslor Ranch near Bodega Bay. Other coastal activities include fishing, whale watching and a variety of educational environmental programs provided by the Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods.

Welcome to West Sonoma Inn & Spa!
