You simply cannot beat this location if you are going to Sonoma for a visit to wine country. The resort used to be easy to book and relatively unknown, but it has been discovered. It is a great resort, one of the better ones in the Worldmark family. The only downside is lack of soundproofing between walls and floors. I pity the person that gets a unit with kids overhead - you will hear every thump as they run to and fro as they have habit to do. The conversation from the next unit was clear as a bell through our bedroom wall. Those are nuisances that are common with Worldmark, and other than that, this location is really nice. The setting is quiet, even with the close proximity to highway 101. It is hard to get into if there are any special events going on in Healdsburg or the surrounding wineries - plan ahead and well in advance.
Nice staff, but at check-in you have to endure the stupid "parking pass" routine. We escaped the process and went straight to our room only to be called and offered a "special golden ticket" to wine country. The woman at the parking desk told me on the phone that Visa was putting on a special event. If I had a Visa card that had the word "signature" on the front, I was one of the "extremely lucky few." Lo and behold when I looked at my Visa card it did indeed say "signature" right below the Visa logo. She said Visa had a list of participating wineries that offer free tastings if your card had this inscription - all I had to do was come to the desk, ask for her, and get my "exclusive gift." I bit. Luckily when I went to the desk, she was busy telling another guest about their "exclusive gift." I asked the other young woman to please get me the list. I was given a poorly photocopied list that looked very old, but I took it and hoped for the best. One of our favorite wineries is Trentadue and it was on the list. We went to the winery and presented the list to the guy at the tasting counter. He glanced quickly at it and said to me, "this thing has not been in effect for over two years." "We have been asking them to remove our name from this list forever, but with no luck." So, my suspicions were correct, just another tactic to get you to come to the front desk so that they can try to get you to sign up for an "owners update." This is merely a two hour, high pressure sales presentation. If you are a glutton for punishment, then this is your mecca. I wish they would eliminate this frustrating ploy.
