a solstice in sonoma
this little getaway came at a perfect time.
after the busy holidays visiting family + friends
in salt lake city, we were in need of some rest
and relaxation in the sun…and time to focus
on just each other. chase found us probably
the nicest hotel we have ever stayed in,
the kenwood inn and spa. what a treat!

did we just arrive in tuscany, or sonoma?
^^ entry to our room
^^ umm our ROOM…..
it was off to the spa soon after we arrived..
so spoiled but so amazing. the spa at kenwood
is so nice that it was a treat even to sit in the waiting
area…that would have been relaxing enough without the
massage! they had a fireplace, sparkling water, apples,
almonds, salted caramel chocolates, and biscotti. what
more does a girl need? i almost didn’t want to leave the
waiting area when my masseuse came to pick me up!
^^ one of the hot tubs…we may have sat
in here for over an hour…too beautiful!
i wanted to take the entire master
bathroom home to be mine.
our first night we were invited to have dinner with
the resident chef..this was our cozy table by the fire!
we don’t drink wine, but since we were in wine
country they brought us amazing “dry sodas”
that they had matched up the flavors of our meals with.
incredible and unique food
salted caramel chocolates on our pillow after that
4-course dinner..i’ll never turn down chocolate!
^^ not surprising that the kenwood is so honored
^^loved going to sleep with the fire
loveliest morning breakfast
nothing like a good breakfast after a run.
though the vineyards were dry in january,
they were still pretty! we can’t wait to come
back and visit in the summer — wow.
we loved the kenwood.
it is the ideal getaway for a special
occasion. we recommend it highly
and we will be back ourselves!
more from sonoma to come..
see our time in sonoma square here.
