Come vacation at The Madrones and create new holiday traditions just a sleigh ride away.  A short drive to Mendocino, Fort Bragg, or Ukiah, you can experience the fun and lighthearted pleasure of the Holidays.

The Festival of Lights located at The Botanical Gardens in Mendocino has been a local favorite for eight years; Friday, Saturday, and Sunday Nov. 24th- Dec 17th. Adults are just $10 and children under 16 are free. Enjoy live music, wine, coffee, hot chocolate and so much more. Visit their website for ticket sales and more information.

Ukiah...on ice!  30 minutes away via Highway 253 you'll be in the adorable city of Ukiah. Each year downtown School St is turned into a ice skating rink. $10 per skate day session (including skates) open ever day even Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Visit for more details

Magical Christmas Skunk Train from Fort Bragg,  tickets include a 60 minute train ride through a storybook wonderland, cookies, hot chocolate in a souvenir mug, and a personal visit with Santa Claus himself. Visit for scheduling and ticket sales. Buying tickets in advance is recommended.

We look forward to having you as our guests this December!
