I secured coverage of Timber Cove Resort in the Financial Times.
The newly re-opened Timber Cove Resort is worth every minute of the two-hour drive north of San Francisco.
The cliff-top resort is sandwiched between Sonoma County’s beautifully rugged coast, and state parks that turn into wine country.
The impressively tall lobby gives way to individual and cozy rooms. There’s beautiful wood everywhere – beams, doors, floors – and the cabin-like theme continues to each rooms’ blankets and textiles. Combined with modern details including SMEG refrigerators and an LP player for every room – for use after a lengthy browse in the resident LP library – Timber Cove Resort’s aesthetic covers many tastes, appealing to what they all ‘The Modern Hippie’.
The on-site restaurant Coast Kitchen serves a steak carnivores like me drool over, and sinfully good maple french toast.
The hotel grounds themselves – following the curves of the cliffs – are impressive enough, but adding Salt Point State Park a short drive to the north gives you a side to Sonoma and California few get to see.
