During their years of running world-class hotels and other large hospitality businesses, Jerry and Tina Wolsborn dreamed of owning and operating a B&B. Throughout their marriage, the adventurous couple lived in Washington D.C., Denver, San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, Seattle, and even Maui and Oahu, Hawaii, but a bit of their hearts always remained in San Francisco, where they met.
In 1989, the Wolsborns returned to San Francisco, living there for almost eight years. Their love of the Bay area grew, as their daughters, Jen and Erin, developed important friendships. The idea of owning a bed and breakfast took root, and amongst the redwoods of Occidental the dream became reality. In June 2003, Jerry and Tina purchased Inn at Occidental. They invite you to come and visit at your home away from home in Sonoma wine country.
Oh, and during your stay, be sure to ask your hosts about some of the people they have had the honor to meet during their years in the hospitality business. Jerry and Tina have met royalty from several countries, Supreme Court Justices, every president of the United States from Richard Nixon to Bill Clinton, and even the most awe-inspiring, Mother Teresa.
Kahlua, the Inn’s official Ambassador of Good Will, left us on January 16, 2014. You will be missed, Kahlua. RIP: 5/18/98-1/16/14.
