Auberge on the Vineyard
Slightly east of Cloverdale, just a brief jaunt across the Russian River, nestled romantically right in the vineyards is the aptly named Auberge on the Vineyard. A glowing example of Queen Anne Victorians, this Inn combines the historical with rooms in the main house along with Carriage House rooms, more modern and spacious, and still carrying the distinctive French appointments, bedding and luxurious baths and fixtures of all the rooms. This property offers full concierge service to guests as well as their Le-Vin-Van to provide transportation for guests on well-planned, fun outings. Specials are offered year-round and weddings, family reunions, business conferences and corporate retreats can all be accommodated here.
Auberge prides itself on its delicious, full, hot breakfast, employing favorite recipes and local, seasonal treats. The convenient, yet rural, location, at the top of the Alexander Valley, makes Auberge close to wine tasting at Wine Road wineries, the Russian River- known for fantastic canoeing and swimming, as well as restaurants offering gourmet, local fare. Many of the rooms have mini-kitchen facilities so that gourmet picnics might be prepared and then enjoyed with a bottle of wine out on the wrap around porch of the main house or on the expansive veranda overlooking the vines. How romantic to watch a glowing sunset over the vineyards, Russian River and mountains to the west. Mais oui, certainement.
Here’s looking at you, kids.
