Andrea Lambert, Resort Club ManagerWe’re lucky here in San Diego – we get to enjoy summer until the end of October!  We still have two more months of long days and warm, golden evenings, perfect for entertaining and relaxing. The Resort Club has filled these two months with golf events, family parties, sophisticated cocktail events and even romantic overnight getaways for couples!

Just around the corner, though, the holidays begin, adding their own flavor of fun and magic to our lives. Here at the Resort Club, we’re preparing for an amazing season of celebration. From Halloween to Thanksgiving to Christmas, the facilities and grounds transform from spooky to warm harvest hues to the dazzle of lights and color that make Christmas and Hanukah so special. Expecting out-of-town guests? Use your spend to feed and entertain them here—at your home away from home. We’ll make sure to get the November/December newsletter out early enough for you to RSVP, make reservations and get all the fun filled into your calendar.

Any questions or suggestions? Feel free to email me, Andrea, at
or call me at 858-675-8484.

FEATURED ARTIST AT CAFE GRANADA: Debbie Schmeling, Couture by the Sea

The earthy elegance of Debbie Schmeling’s hand-crafted jewelry fits the Rancho Bernardo Inn perfectly. Inspired by her love of nature, Debbie uses the purest form of silver available (99.9%) with naturally-shaped and hued freshwater pearls. You probably haven’t seen baby blues this frosty or pinks this precious in a while. Each piece is hammered and fused by hand. Debbie loves living near the beach in San Diego with her husband and two daughters. Rancho Bernardo Inn Resort Club members enjoy 10% off all Couture by the Sea treasures. View more of her jewelry!

Halloween at the InnKeep the Halloween fun, add some delicious food and our Mediterranean gardens lit in spooky sparkles, and you’ve got a Halloween for both kids AND parents. Many of us are parents ourselves, and we know how to keep the Halloween  scary-fun rather than scary-scary. We put on our creepiest thinking caps to come up with a kid-friendly haunted house, trick-or-treating, face-painting, pumpkin-decorating, a costume contest and Halloween themed pastries that will put your neighborhood festivities to shame.

Kids activities ($17 for non-members) cost just $12 for members. Food and bar options include pizza, street tacos, hot pretzels and more for a fee. Looking for more sustenance on All Hallows Eve? Try our fall 3-course pre-fixe menu at Veranda Fireside Lounge & Restaurant, $34 per person. No RSVP necessary; simply sign in at the reservation desk on Friday or Saturday.
