We arrived at the l&m quite by misfortune as our car broke down on the 101 south 500+ miles from home. AAA towed us to the small town of Healdsburg in the heart of Sonoma county. We found that l&m was the only hotel in town that would take us and our three kids without a credit card. Kim the owner is wonderful and even took us into check on our car in her own personal car.Even though there were no rooms available for our second night in town she let us spend the day in the pool and gardens and offered to let us set up camp in the side yard so we wouldnt be out on the streets if no one cancelled! I would definitely come back here intentionally for a wine country vacation. You dont see this kind of generosity and small town love at the big guys (best western).
