Welcome Winter at Camellia Inn and Save

Camellia Inn2020 has been quite the year and it isn’t over quite yet. Who couldn’t use some down time during the holidays? Get some much needed R&R with a Sonoma Wine Country getaway and save with Camellia Inn’s Welcome Winter lodging special!

There’s nothing like a Wine Country vacation to soothe the worry lines from your brow and put that spring back in your step. It may not be the first destination that springs to your mind during the holidays – but why not?

Sure, December through March is considered Wine Country “off-season” but that can actually make it one of the best times to visit!

While winter may see more cooler, rainy days than the rest of the year, the other side of the coin is smaller crowds. Fewer tourists means greater access to exclusive attractions, lower prices and, for this year, easier social distancing.

We certainly think of the “off-season” that way: an opportunity to experience a different, quieter side of  Sonoma County. It is with this in mind that we created our Welcome Winter wine country lodging special.

Welcome Winter Lodging Special

Save 15% off your stay at Camellia Inn between December 1st, 2020 and February 28th, 2021 – and that’s not all!

You’ll also receive a few other seasonal surprises. A bottle of our own, Camellia Inn Cabernet Sauvignon, for example, will be waiting in your room for you when you arrive! You’ll also receive a locally curated, seasonal gift.
