the gaige house

After dropping Lyons off
at the Sacramento airport
to catch his bus to camp,
we drove east to 

John had found a quaint inn
in Glen Ellen
and booked a room 
for several nights.

I thought it looked "nice"
and would be "fine."

I had no idea 
that we would
fall in love 
with this place.

Upon arrival,
we were told we had been upgraded to the
"Zen Suite"
and zen it was.

We followed a little path to a building
next to the main house

where we were shown to
our room.

The suite consisted of
an entryway
with a hallway 

leading to the bedroom

and sitting area.

There was a central
off the hallway

with a soothing

The bathroom
was divine ~
a slate and granite

We loved how it 
 opened to the 
private courtyard.

Another cloistered patio
was located off
the main room.

The pool was
and quiet.

Cocktails were served
in the main house
 every afternoon 
at 5:00.

Each evening,
  an assortment of 
fresh baked cookies
was placed in the foyer.

a little tin of happiness

There are so many places to see
in the world
so many things to do,
that it is rare
that we want to
return to a previous destination.
this is one place
we look forward to
visiting again.

It is my new favorite place
to relax, rejuvenate,
and restore
mind, body,
and soul.
