Napa Valley Wine Country Inn

Surrounded by vineyards and verdant hillsides, The Wine Country Inn is as pleasing as a canvas laid down by Van Gogh” Jerry Hulse - LA Times

“Combined, they create an atmosphere of comfort in the tradition of Napa Valley Hospitality”
Ann Kaiser - Premiere issue of Country<

“A likely headquarters for your visit might be The Wine Country Inn, a romantic 25-room retreat just off the main road north of St. Helena”
Craig Turner - LA Times

“One of my favorite choices for lodging is The Wine Country Inn.”
Hank Rubin - Bon Appetit

“The Wine Country Inn has been guided by three generations of the Smith family since it was built in 1975...”
Los Angeles Magazine

“...an old-fashioned re-creation embellished with new-fashioned comforts.”
The Hideaway Report

“The Inn offers a generous, self-serve breakfast in the morning. The homemade granola cereal is not to be missed. The staff is one of the Inn’s greatest assets - all of the employees are helpful, friendly and knowledgeable...”
Rob Reid and Elizabeth Hendricks - The Stanford Daily

Country Inns and Back Roads: I think other innkeepers in California are fortunate to have such a model inn after which to fashion themselves. The care and consideration that have gone into the designing, and the result, prove that a country inn doesn’t have to be old to be legendary.

Karen Brown’s California Charming Inns & Itineraries: The setting is peaceful, the mood relaxing, and the staff knowledgeable and friendly. Public areas include a lovely lobby which opens onto a large expanse of deck and a pool (now heated all year) on the terraced hillside bounded by a patio and colorful gardens.

“Our recent stay at The Wine Country Inn was extended from two nights to three and then from three to four. This should be a vivid testimonial of our impression of your inn” - D.L. Bergman

“My husband and I recently returned from a vacation on the West Coast, including one night in the Napa Valley. The Wine Country Inn is easily the most delightful place we’ve ever stayed while traveling! It was everything Holiday magazine and your brochure boasted. Its charm and the gracious reception we received from your young people on the desk will be a pleasant remembrance.” - E. Hardy

“We were enormously impressed with everything. Your staff is marvelous, the rooms lovely and the food delicious. I couldn’t even fault the coffee!!!” - N. Bennett

“The quaint (but not cute) rooms with comforters - fireplaces - view of the full moon - the handmade comfortable bed - the fine furniture - well I could go on and on...” - M. Gonzalez

Glenwood Springs Colorado

Glenwood Springs is located in the western half of Colorado, halfway between Aspen and Vail. Nearby are the fun towns of Carbondale, Basalt and Redstone. The Roaring Fork River and Colorado River intersect town and their confluence is located downtown. Glenwood Springs is mecca for fisherman, kayakers and white water rafters. It is pretty good for golfing, skiing, mountain biking and hiking too.

Glenwood Springs is most famous for its Hot Springs Pool. However, there are some other attractions that are worth noticing:

Sunlight Ski Mountain -- about 15 or 20 minutes from downtown, this smaller ski area is definitely the local's choice. Good snow, good steeps, good family runs, great prices!

Sunlight Mountain Inn -- an inn/hotel at the base of sunlight mountain. A great lodging and accommodation choice if you are skiing... or if you want to be close to the mountains for recreation purposes -- it has excellent access to our local mountain fun.

Rifle Creek Golf Course
-- about 20 minutes or so west on I70 is the town of Rifle. The 18 hole golf course also has a driving range. During March and April it is not uncommon to golf and ski on the same day!

Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park -- caves, restaurant, lots of fun rides and events for the famil, and the best view anywhere! Make sure you plan on spending a day of fun, adventure and education.

Family Style Maine Oceanfront Resort

I spent three nights at the Sebasco Resort at the end of last summer. We played a lot of golf on their very nice 9-hole course and enjoyed great food. The Resort is located right on a scenic harbor and has a lighthouse right on the premises.

We stayed in the "Bay View" cottage which was a perfect little cottage with, as you might guess, a view of the Bay. They also have a bowling alley which was fun.

Sebasco does golf, weddings, and cottages. Located in Sebasco Maine. Traditional New England Destination Resort situated on 550-acre estate overlooking Casco Bay.
