April is not just for doing taxes. The wild iris bloom on the coastal hills. There is a great wine event the end of April when the winegrowers of Dry Creek sponsor the Passport to Dry Creekk event.

Sebastopol’s Apple Blossom Festivalis an event for the whole family, with food and wine pairing, a parade, art and craft expos and garden displays.

For years our friends have put up with an old website. Now thanks to Colin Frangos, we have a wonderful new site, easy to navigate and informative.
We think that it is more user-friendly, with the layout of the property which you can mouse over and see photos and descriptions. Also we are going to be using the blog more so watch us for current events and well kept secrets. A good example of this would be Mateo’s next dinner menu for his pop-up restaurant. The dinners are on the 3rd and 4th of March, Thursday and Friday, not the 4th and 5th.
Barrel Tasting at the Wineroad wineries is the weekend of March 5th-6th and March 12th-13th.
We also suggest that you can visit us on Facebook and get more up to date information and reviews.

When the weather outside is cold and wet, a hot bowl of soup hits the spot. We have been on a search for the best clam chowder nearby. It all started because of a local food blog in the Press Democrat‘s Bite Club. We tried Henweigh Cafe first and found it to be very authentic, good and satisfying. We also tried the corn chowder which we thought was super. Later in the week we tried the chowder at Spud Point Crab Company. This chowder has been voted best in Bodega Bay and did not disappoint. We believe that it is less traditional, creamier and more highly seasoned than Henweigh’s. Since it is crab season, we tried the crab sandwich too. Wow, very simple, lots of crab, a soft roll and super tasty.
Nearer to Creekside is the ever popular Garden Grill. We had a very good bowl of chowder there too.

Sonoma County is a great place for cycling and there are many people who ride here year round. You may not think of a Sonoma County cycling adventure in December but if you want to participate in one of the best cycling events in the county, you will need to act soon. Last October Sonoma county had its first Gran Fondo and it was a great success. Levis Gran Fondo sold out rapidly last year and it is likely to do the same this year. Registration for the event is open now and will be very likely to fill up shortly.To learn more about the event and register for it go to the Gran Fondo Website
And if you do want to visit Sonoma County for a cycling adventure Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall, our resident bike geek (Mark) would be happy to help you plan rides from Creekside Inn & Resort.

Watch for information on Winter Wineland and great clam chowder coming soon.
