New Inn - Temecula Wine Country

We were finally able to do a 
Weekend Getaway
to the beautiful

here in Southern California!

The best part
we got to stay at the fabulous

This new property is literally

"Luxury at it's finest"

And it's situated in the heart of

Which has been  voted one of the 10 best 
wine regions in the world!

The service at 
The New Inn
is wonderful!

They made big points in my book
with a welcoming glass of bubbly
while we sat down at the desk to check in!

There was so much beauty to take in from every direction!

After check in
we grabbed our luggage 
walked down the airy hall
and ....

Opened the door to our amazing villa for the weekend!!

The property consists of 5 individually designed villas.

I don't think you could find a more Covid safe place to stay.
The villas are completely private
inside and out.

The outside property is expansive.

When I travel these days
I don't want my trip to be full of worry
that I'm being irresponsible.

I want to go on with my life
in the safest way possible.

checked all my 
'let's be responsible boxes!'


Back to the fun and beauty ...

I chose 

Vintage Glam Villa 

for the weekend!

Just look at the airy volume in the room!

And the villa 
just gets better ....

There is a lovely seating area
which we actually used many times!

The welcome sparkling wine was such a treat
we bought an ice cold bottle from the front desk
settled in to 
savor and enjoy our fabulous villa!

I was thrilled to see our room even came with fresh flowers!!

The villa also comes complete with
glamorous bathrooms!

Dual vanity sinks
an indoor rain shower 
and ...
wait for it ...

an outdoor rain shower!!

Talk about showering with a view!!

The frig, coffee maker and bar sink 
had us nicely set up.

There is not a restaurant on property
but a quick run to the upscale market a few minutes away
had us set up with a lovely private  picnic  ....

On our private 'backyard' patio!!

We had panoramic views of 
wine country!

After not being able to travel since March
which may I say 
feels like years ago ...

We sat in the wonderful wooden chairs 

 truly stopped

to savor and enjoy
the beautiful surroundings.

I made a special note
to press the moment deep into my heart

that these times may be hard and uncertain

but if you hold on tight 
you can come up once again ....

to moments of beauty, peace and solace.

The afternoon felt enchanted.

We had fabulous sparkling wine
outside in our own private space
watched the sheep herd graze the hills

We were even close enough to hear the sheep!

Our panoramic view!

Later we changed for dinner 
and headed into 

a quick 7 miles away
to find a spot for dinner.

In California right now there is only 
outdoor dining
which is always a favorite of mine anyway!

Walking along
wooden boardwalk we spotted 
this beautiful restaurant!

I was so taken by the sharp design
so masks on
we put our name on the list for a table!

Ends up this darling restaurant

Small Barn

just opened up the week before!!

The space is so well done to the smallest detail!

I am always so taken when even small utilitarian 
design choices are beautiful!

The restaurant felt very Covid safe as well!

Tables were of course only outside
well distanced
masks required upon entry and if you leave your seat.
We also had our temperature taken before we were shown
to our table.

I am always about design and ambiance of a restaurant first ...

but the food here had me realizing 
why foodies are so passionate about 
great food!

is definitely a chef driven
farm to table restaurant!

Chef Angelo Sosa
is a true passionate artist!

It was one of those truly memorable meals!

 had us returning several times during our stay in

Temecula Valley Wine Country!

Our fabulous stay at the 

continued in the morning!

Look at the fabulous cups!
We woke up and took our coffee outside
to the smell of the early morning dew!

When you get up early enough in
you can see all of the hot air balloons filling 
the Temecula Valley skies!

And the morning got even better!

On the weekends at the 

breakfast is delivered to your villa!!

And delivered in style it was!

They even put linen on the cafe table 
that each villa has on the patio!

More fresh flowers for the table!
Linen napkins wrapped with twine!
Beautiful dishes!

And eating

Morning made
with all of these finishing details!!

Being in the 
Wine Country
always has me wanting to wear
romantic ensembles!

It's the openness and the abounding beauty
that has me wanting to play along!

has lovely public spaces as well.

They just finished an upper terrace
which will be a perfect space for events!

I believe they are also about to break ground on 
a pool as well!

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog
my friends
following along on our 
beautiful getaway!

I hope you enjoyed your visit
to this fabulous property!

As always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life



    1. Yes, that is where Temecula is located. They are well known for their large number a=of antique dealers as well as the wineries!

      Thank you so much for stopping by here for a read darling! So appreciate it! big hugs my friend! xox

  2. Breathtaking, from the outfits to the meals and scenery -- and I'm with you on those fabulous coffee cups! What a wonderful time you must have had! Thanks for sharing the experience

    1. Beth thank you so much for stopping by, for a read and leaving such an encouraging comment darling! I so appreciate your visit! xox

  3. I can be lounging on the sofa, eating potato chips, and when your blog entry arrives, it always inspires me anew to try to live my best life. Thank you! You have that something sparkly in life that is contagious.

    1. Thank you for this gift of words darling! That is the highest of compliments! Big hugs to you! xox

  4. ohhhh! It's been forever since I've been to Temecula! (We used to live in San Diego, what seems like ages ago). So beautiful out there in the high desert spaces. And was that creme brulee I see? What fabulous photos, looks like a wonderful place (and I'm loving that luggage set you have!!). Dreaming of the days of travel again!!!

    1. Temecula has gone through big changes over the last thirty years, when Jeff and I first visited! With the addition now of a top notch place to stay ... it definitely give Napa and Sonoma a run for it's money! Thank you ever so much Roxanne for stopping by for a read! xox

  5. How wonderful to be able to travel again. Everything is stunningly beautiful from the New Inn to your luggage, and the beautiful maxi dresses, hats and crowns. You look gorgeous - my favourite is the white dress. We have not been away since early March - dreaming of getting away one of these days, but we are locked away from the rest of Australia. Be safe. xx

    1. Oh Patricia it really was wonderful to get away ... and it was only about an hour from our house! To see new spaces after so much of the same ... really lifted my soul!

      I am so sorry to hear of your lockdown darling! I know how disheartening it can feel! Sending you big, big hugs from Southern California! xox

  6. How fabulous to be out traveling again! The Inn looks amazing ... it reminds me of the Carneros Inn in Sonoma/Napa. My husband began his career with the Calloway Winery in Temecula. So much has changed and it looks like a wonderful place for a getaway. When the pool is filled we'll pack up the car and head South. Of course, our luggage and my wardrobe will look nothing like yours. You are always amazing and fabulous, Tamera! xo

    1. It definitely is very much similar to the Carneros Inn!! Jeff and I were saying the very same! What I did like even a bit more than Carneros was the panoramic views from our outdoor space. Temecula has changed so much over the last 30 years, that Jeff and I have been going out there. The food is so much better and now with a great place to stay ... it really is a game changer for wine country. I also can't wait for them to have a pool!

      Thank you ever so much for visiting and commenting Juliet! xox

  7. Thank you so much for posting about this wonderful place! Thanks to you we have made reservations for a two-night stay in October to celebrate our anniversary. We'd been wanting to do something special (especially since we've been mostly home since March) but didn't know what to do, and this will be perfect. We live in San Diego so it's not far away.
    Love your posts and blog, and your inspirational style!
    Cheryl Warren

    1. I am so excited for you Cheryl! It is an absolutely perfect place to celebrate your anniversary! And the weather in October is always wonderful! Thank you so much for reading and leaving such a wonderful comment! So appreciated! xox

  8. This looks the most luxurious place to escape for a few days . Most fitting you chose the Vintage Glam Suite. Your choice of outfits was of course perfect , stylish and glamorous. So pleased you were able to safely enjoy time away. xxx

    1. So lovely to find your comment here darling Jill! I think you would really adore this property! Yes, I did get a chuckle out of the name Vintage Glam ... me being Vintage ... and of course loving everything Glam! Hope things are well in Tasmania! xox

  9. indeed a place where you can let your soul fly. Like your activity to spend weekends out off home in style.
