The Lodge at Tiburon Excels in Every Way

Jul 23, 2008
When my boss let us know that our firm was holding a sales conference in northern California my first thought was ?You have to be kidding.? My second thought was, ?My wife is going to hate me!? We live in a frozen, isolated area of Maine and business trips had already forced me to be gone several weeks this winter, leaving my wife alone in the house with two bored preschoolers. She was already dissatisfied with me. This would send her over the edge!

Then I found out the conference site--San Francisco! Our conference at the Lodge at Tiburon be pretty laid back with spouses welcome! My wife and I had long tossed about the idea of a taking a second honeymoon to San Francisco. What ideal timing! After a long, cold winter, a few days in the mild California climate would be a real treat.

Suddenly I was her knight in shining armor again. She immediately got the grandparents to come baby sit and started packing! We researched the area and knew what we wanted to see, but nothing prepared us for our lodgings. The site was incredible. It was easily the most gorgeous place we have ever stayed. It was right on the San Francisco Bay, a ferry ride from the city.

The whole place had a warm, ambient glow to it. The Craftsman style has always been a favorite of mine, with its strong emphasis of wood and fine lines. The guest rooms were well-appointed. I felt as if someone had invited me to spend a week in their well-decorated home instead of in a sterile, cookie-cutter hotel room. The amenities were fabulous, too?cushy robes, incredible beds, cookies in the lobby, and Craftsmen furniture. Outside there was a fire pit on the patio. We spent our evenings in the rocking chairs, chatting in the glow of the fire, rekindling our relationship.

San Francisco was all we dreamed it would be, and I can think of no better place from which to explore! The Lodge at Tiburon was ideal in everyway. I have never dreaded saying goodbye to a place more.
