Sonoma Wine Country

Unspoiled pastoral countryside, dinner beside the California coast, and award-winning wines, all in one county! Sonoma County is the quintessential wine country, with sophistication and class without the attitude and crowds. Here, rolling hills and peaceful country roads weave through family-owned vineyards, as well as nationally known wineries. At 1,604 square miles, Sonoma County is much larger than neighboring Napa and offers more diverse activities to enjoy. Relaxed and personal, Sonoma lies closer to the sea and further from the traffic.

The first home of wine production in Northern California, Sonoma County is also still the nation’s largest producer of quality wine. Distinct wine valleys; such as Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley, and the Valley of the Moon; dot the countryside, each offering its own flavors and varietals, including many of the world’s best-known labels and appellations.

Occidental

A charming vacation destination, nestled among Sonoma wine country’s redwood forests, Occidental is an ideal location for the inn. Enchanted by Pacific ocean breezes and the scent of local vineyards, guests will agree that the inn is the perfect place from which to discover all of the great activities and attractions that Western Sonoma has to offer. Dozens of artists call Occidental home and their artwork can be found in many local stores, along with a variety of other unique treasures. Take a leisurely stroll in the small town center and browse intriguing shops like Mad Hatter toy store, Hand Goods, Galleria, and Vintage by Design.

Relax and rejuvenate in the privacy of your own room. The Inn at Occidental massage therapists will work wonders! During your holiday, you will enjoy a memorable Swedish massage for two, in the comfort of your own room. This massage is a traditional western-style massage using kneading, rubbing, rolling, and friction, as well as tapotement (tapping) on the body, to relax and stimulate circulation. If you wish, you can also enjoy a deep-tissue massage, which addresses the second, and sometimes third, layer of muscle in the body, releasing chronic patterns of tension through slow strokes and deep finger pressure, or a session of reflexology, which involves a very detailed and relaxing treatment of the feet, hands, and ears.
