IT’S NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION TIME. ARE YOU READY?

January 15th, 2012

The New Year is rapidly approaching and if you haven’t made your list of New Year’s Resolutions, why not add a trip to the river and a few nights at Creekside to your list.  To help you do this we are offering the third night free over the Martin Luther King Day weekend, just go to our reservation page, select the three day weekend and enter MLK  in the promo code box.   It is the weekend of the Wineroad’s Winter Wineland, which is an annual 2 day event where you can meet the winemaker and taste library wines.

Now for Porter-Bass Winery…

If that is not your speed, we have discovered a fabulous winery less than 4 miles from here that provides tastings by appointment only and has some fabulous wines.

 

We were lucky enough to hear about Porter-Bass Winery from some guests and then made an appointment for a tasting and were delighted to meet the winemaker, Luke Bass, his wife and son.  The operation is a multi-generational family run, biodynamic and beautiful.

 

If you still have energy on Saturday night check out the Russian River Sisters Bingo.

 

Remember, the third night is free if you book over the Martin Luther King holiday.  Just enter the promo code MLK

 

 

ALL THE CRAB YOU CAN EAT ON CREEKSIDE

January 2nd, 2012

Book online a two night stay on the weekend of February 11, 2012, order the 2 crab & pasta dinners and proceed with the reservation.  Enter the promo code CRAB and we will pay for the tickets.  Of course, this is based on availability of accommodations and dinners.

Proceeds from the dinner help fund the good work that the Russian River Rotary does for the local schools and senior center.  They fund scholarships for graduating high school seniors, an anti-bullying campaign at the local high school, the Forestville Youth Park and the maintenance of the barbeque and picnic area at the local senior center.

This year the event is at the Shone Farm, which is the Santa Rosa Junior College’s outdoor educational lab for the agriculture and natural resources department.
