Glen Ellen’s Gaige House, Sonoma Valley, California

When the world’s your oyster, sometimes it’s hard to decide which oyster to open first to find the pearl.  A few moms and I had decided it was time to see if we still had wings and could fly from the nest and have some time away from our 24/7 Momfressional lives.  We chose luxury digs with good food and wine close in proximity.   It wasn’t Paris, but it didn’t cost as much as going to Paris in this economy either.

We pitched our tent at the Gaige House in Glen Ellen, Sonoma County, California.  What woman doesn’t love the wine country–or wine for that matter?  The rooms were spacious and elegent and the grounds were lush and beautiful.  It was almost too romantic for a group of moms.  We all kept wishing our husbands were on our Mom’s Getaway.  Next time we are taking the men. 

The first thing you must know about the Gaige House is about the knock you flat, gourmet breakfasts that they serve each morning.  It is added to your room cost is you so desire, and desire it you should.  This is breakfast done as I’ve never quite seen or appreciated breakfast before:  in fact it’s rated the #1 Bed and Breakfast by Travel & Leisure.

Glen Ellen is a tiny, picturesque town nestled  into its own little hidden spot just off Highway 12, so you  are close to everything Sonoma but in a world all your own.  In this quiet, sleepy town we walked to dinner many a night by flashlight end enjoyed The Fig Cafe and The Glen Ellen Inn.  Don’t miss the dynamite vodka cocktails by the bartender there who infuses her own vodka!  

We played scrabble (once), read our books and trashy mags, hot-tubbed, jacuzzi-tubbed, and hiked in nearby Jack London Park.  The Margaritarator was broken in, as were several bottles of wine.  A fine time was had by all, and we highly recommend this locale to anyone wanting to enjoy wine country at a slow, relaxing pace.
