Remembrance of Travel Past: Inn on Randolph

My friend who owns the gorgeous and super LGBTQ-friendly Inn on Randolph in California touched base with me. With stay-at-home orders still in place and most people unwilling or unable to travel, business has been very severely affected — as in many very worthy venues. The all-woman-run Inn on Randolph is just fabulous, with a relaxed yet luxurious feeling, super comfortable rooms, DELICIOUS food and of course fantastic wines from nearby Napa, Sonoma and beyond.

The Inn on Randolph in Napa is gay friendly. Can't wait to visit when it's open again1

I wanted to include the piece I published in ManAboutWorld Gay Travel Magazine here as a reminder of an unforgettable visit with a group of LGBTQ leaders and travelers a few years ago and a hope to visit again soon!

Here’s the gorgeous garden where they’ve conducted same-sex wedding ceremonies.

We love the LGBTQ-welcoming Inn on Randolph, an incredibly hospitable 10-unit bed and breakfast. It’s located on a leafy residential street a pleasant, brief walk from downtown Napa, California. The (all-woman) staff is cheery, super accommodating and knowledgeable about the innumerable options worth considering in the area. Don’t miss the gourmet breakfast, and be sure to return later in the day for their delicious cookies. Accommodations include bathrooms with heated, hardwood floors (much of which is original to the 19th-century mansion), pillow-top beds, wine refrigerators with bottles for purchase, televisions, bath robes and slippers. We stayed in the main house which gives you instant access to those cookies, but the five separate cottages provide more privacy.

Our group enjoyed numerous bubbly toasts!
