Holidays and 2015 specials from Barretta Gardens Inn
It’s been a busy summer here at Barretta Gardens Inn with lots of guests from all over the world – most of them wanting to see the gold rush towns of Columbia, Bodie and of course Yosemite. Apart from that some just travel here for the lovely vistas crossing the Sonora or Tioga Pass. Nature is changing and all the Chinese Pistachio trees are in full costume – wearing various tones of red and yellow. Our Camellias are budding for spring and Danny is buying more daffodil bulbs. In July we did a “Jazz in the Gardens” evening that was very popular with the locals as well as the guests. When we forget how much work was involved maybe we’ll do another one next year. Below you will find a Calendar of activities for the next 3 months to inspire you to come up and see us again and don’t forget, you can do group cooking classes nearby at Yankee Hill Winery, fun!
A few years ago we were asked to be on the AAUW House Tour (http://sonora-ca.aauw.net/events/home-tour/) . Approx. 500 people attended the tour and as a thank you we received this water color painting by a local artist from Columbia, David Iserman. It’s now hanging in our dining room for guests to enjoy.
