We just returned from a four night stay at the Inn at Occidental, and we loved it. The inn, itself, is quaint and welcoming with a lovely courtyard, large fireplaces, a wrap around porch, and unique antiques. Our room overlooked the court yard and the small village of Occidental with redwoods in the background. The innkeepers, Tina and Jerry, were very friendly, helpful, and devoted to making our entire experience a good one. They went out of their way to make certain that we had reservations at wonderful local restaurants and that we took in the best experiences of the area, including a trip to a winery north of Healdsburg that was absolutely beautiful, and a trip to the coast on a small rural highway that gave us unbelievable views of the countryside and the ocean. The breakfasts each day at the inn were divine. We loved them all, but the cinnamon brioche french toast and orange pancakes were our favorites. The evening hors d`oeuvres and wine receptions were relaxing opportunities to visit with the innkeepers and get tips on local attractions, etc. We found this entire experience very refreshing and relaxing; just what we needed. Now, you should know that we did not have cell phone reception in and around Occidental, and there are no TVs in the rooms. Also, this is a very rural community with small towns scattered all around and a mix of forests and rolling farms, many of which are planted into vineyards. So, if you are looking for constant excitement and prefab entertainment, you probably should go somewhere else, but if you are looking for a truly relaxing get-away, this is the place to go. Also, if you are a foodie, this entire area is a must. Every single meal that we had was wonderful.
