The Olea Hotel, located in Glen Ellen, California in the heart of Wine Country, reopened August 28th, following the October 2017 Northern California wildfires.
The fires burned two guest cottages, adjacent garden and hot tub, firepit area, perimeter fencing and landscaping. Three primary buildings were saved, and there was minimal smoke damage to the lobby and guest rooms. Along with cleaning the entire property, upgrades include a pool and new hot tub, new landscaping and interior upgrades to the entire facility. Olea hotel reopens with 13 rooms, with the final two cottages to be completed in the spring. Inspired Spaces of Santa Rosa, CA, has handled the interior design of the property and Applied Building Solutions of Guerneville has handled the construction management.
Olea’s signature offering is its breakfast (included in the price.) With a distinctive menu designed by Executive Chef Khambay Porterkhamsy, which changes daily and seasonally, Olea Hotel's complimentary breakfast includes a two-course plated breakfast mixing sweet and savory items, along with a delightful breakfast buffet. The new menu includes items such as a warm beignet with cardamom sugar and peach compote, fraiche waffles with cultured butter, warm apples and maple syrup, and poached egg on bacon, corn, pepper, zucchini ragout with avocado garlic aioli and smoked tomato vinaigrette.
Room rates on reopening are $200–$475 per night. To make reservations, visit www.oleahotel.com.
