Sonoma County bounces back from wildfires

Six months after a series of wildfires charred the landscape, Sonoma County, California has announced that two Wine Country properties are welcoming guests once more.

Both the Kenwood Inn & Spa and the Glen Ellen Inn Oyster Grill and Martini Bar suffered smoke and other damage, but have reopened after being beautifully refreshed.

Kenwood Inn & Spa
