The hotel has abundant, cozy and casual seating, as well as fireplaces galore both indoors and out for catching up and networking with friends. The heated pool and hot tub are open year-round, and there are pickleball and cornhole courts with free gear provided. It is also a DOG FRIENDLY hotel. There are SEVEN brewing companies within a short drive of the venue, and more vineyards than you have time to visit in a lifetime in Sonoma County. Bodega Bay and the renowned Marine Laboratory are 30 short miles from the meeting, and don’t forget about the towering redwoods nearby in the Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve. Thank you to the SF Bay Chapter for organizing field trips, birding walks and other fun activities to help us get out and explore the area together. SONOMA COUNTY HAS SO MUCH TO OFFER US!
