A Rustic Escape
Beautiful Glen Ellen is tucked into the narrow canyon between Sonoma Mountain and the Mayacamas Mountain range in Southern Sonoma County. This quiet village is home to a few culinary gems and quaint shops, as well as boutique hotels and inns. Just 20 minutes north of Sonoma, Glen Ellen is a serene destination for those seeking to relax in the wooded beauty of the Sonoma Valley.
Glen Ellen is known for its rustic and natural beauty. The Sonoma and Calabasas creeks meander through the tiny downtown area and the wilderness of nearby Sonoma Valley Regional Park, Bouverie Wildflower Preserve, and Jack London State Historic Park offer hiking trails and scenic vistas.
Meander along the hiking trails in Jack London State Historic Park , the site of the home where Jack London, author of “Call of the Wild”, spent the last years of his life. The vast park covers 1400 beautiful acres and includes historic buildings, orchards, a lake, and a 19th-century winery. Then sip and swirl Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot at Benziger Family Winery , known for their sustainable and biodynamic farming. Taste small-production Cabernet Sauvignon and Old Vine Zinfandel at Madrone Vineyards Estate , while enjoying the view of their 100 year-old vines. Spend the evening basking in the intimate ambiance and seasonal dishes at Olive & Vine , a farm-to-table restaurant and wine bar housed inside the former cask room of Glen Ellen Winery.
