The Bardessono Story

The property, established in 1926, was originally the home of Italian immigrants John and Lucy Bardessono, who,together with John's brother-in-law, Martin Zucco, purchased the 20-acre land to create a private estate and vineyard. Lucy and John's portraits, along with photos of their seven children, adorn the lobby.

Today, the hotel occupies five acres of the land. Lucy's Garden, tended to by Lucy, still thrives on the property, providing fresh produce for Lucy Restaurant & Bar. The garden boasts a variety of vegetables and herbs like pineapple quince, yuzu, tomato, garlic chive, strawberry, chocolate mint, and eggplant. In 2009, the hotel, restaurant, and spa opened as an environmentally-friendly luxury establishment and a year later, it achieved LEED Platinum Certification from the US Green Building Council.
