About this listing
This secluded and romantic One bedroom suite has a private entrance, queen bed, large bathroom with 4 person jetted tub, and radiant heated floors. Your stay comes with a French petit dejeuner breakfast & a on-site French Specialty Cooking School.
We are location in the Woodinville Wine Country...home of 125 wineries, 15 miles from Seattle and only a 20 minute drive...and yet we give yuo the impression of being in another country as we are reminiscent of the French Country Inns of the Loire Valley of France.
We welcome you to partake in one of our hands-on French Cooking Classes, or take a wine tasting tour with one of our Wine Educators, or take a personalized educational garden tour with one of our Certified Professional Horticulturist and visit one of our famous conservatory gardens. You can also take a stroll to our herb and vegetable garden and if you are in the mood, carry on further afield to the adjacent hiking/biking trails.
Interaction with guests
We try to afford our guests as much privacy as they would like and yet if they seek us out we are here to share with them information on the wonders of the Pacific Northwest.
Other things to note
We are a French Country Inn and enjoy celebrating all things French!
You will be sent "rules and regulations" before your arrival, but the main rule is to respect our establishment and to leave things as you have found them.

I come from a French heritage. My mother was French and my father (Norman Gates) spent 17 years living with the French in France and in French Morocco. He was much involved with the wine France and in United States, always curious about wine and wanting to share his knowledge. In many ways, culturally, I am more French than American. I lived in the Loire Valley, (yes, now you understand why I am partial to the Loire Valley) during five years as a teenager. I am bilingual. I feel that I have a good understanding of the people, their way of life and I am anxious to share this "joie de vivre" with my guests. I truly enjoy celebrating my French heritage, (I come from a long line of excellent cooks) and introducing you to all that I love and all that I hold dear about France in all her glory is my raison d'etre! I am the author of "French Cuisine, a traditional experience" cookbook. Our property is also the home of a French Specialty Cooking School in the Woodinville Wine Country, in Washington State. I truly believe that French Cuisine is meant to be shared it is not a solitary occupation!
