Timber Cove Inn. The panoramic Sonoma coast ocean view is the real draw here, but the cozy bar and lounge lurred us indoors and there we discovered that this place is cooking!  We ate all our meals at the Inn and none disappointed.  Each dish was fresh (we saw the chef pluck greens from the resort’s garden), thoughtfully prepared, and presented well. Once fed, there’s not much happening here — a walk along the adjacent coastal trails and you will have exhausted the resort’s activity offerings.  But it’s not just the trails that might make you reluctant to head to your room. A coveted junior suite has been updated, but most rooms are strange configurations with outdated bathrooms, stained carpets, cheap furnishings, paper-thin walls, and overly large flat screen TVs. The in-room gas fireplace provides some ambiance, but it is rather noisy, clicking on and off to regulate the room’s temperature. Still, the sound of ocean waves wafting through the room’s window makes it easy to overlook these flaws for a night or two.
