Hey ladies, how about a drive up to West Marin County for a weekend of kayaking, cheese and oysters on the banks of Tomales Bay? Located about an hour and a half north of San Francisco on Highway 1, Nick's Cove and Cottages is a serene and beautiful place to spend a weekend surrounded by nature and delicious treats. The cottages at Nick's Cove are designed with a rustic yet luxurious nautical elegance, and include cozy touches like soaking tubs, fireplaces, heated floors and honor bars. Breakfast is delivered every morning, and barbecued oysters are delivered upon check in, so the only time you ladies will need to leave your room is to go enjoy local and seasonal fare in the on-site restaurant, a cocktail by the fire in the boat shack or to go kayaking.
If you happen to be heading up north the weekend of March 21-23, be sure to stop by California's Artisan Cheese Festival on the way to or from Nick's Cove. Now in its eighth year, the Artisan Cheese Festival takes place at the Sheraton Sonoma County - Petaluma, and is every cheese-lover's dream. It is the United States’ premier cheese and wine event that spans three days and brings guests up close and personal with California's top artisan cheese makers as well as authors, chefs and winemakers.
ABOUT CALIFORNIA’S ARTISAN CHEESE FESTIVAL
California’s Artisan Cheese Festival strives to increase cheese appreciation, educate consumers about artisan cheeses, support the cheesemaking community and its sustainability and celebrate the creations of California’s many farmers and cheesemakers. The festival began in March 2007 as the first-ever, weekend-long celebration and exploration of handcrafted cheeses, foods, wines and beers from California and beyond. In keeping with its dedication to the community, the Artisan Cheese Festival will donate 10% of all ticket proceeds to Sonoma Land Trust, Marin Agricultural Land Trust, Petaluma Future Farmers of America, California Artisan Cheese Guild and Redwood Empire Food Bank. To date the Artisan Cheese Festival has contributed more than $45,000 to these non-profit organizations that work to support the artisan cheesemaking community and its infrastructure in California.
