Numerous Andrew Harper members will be familiar with The Madrona (formerly Madrona Manor), which was a recommended property prior to its closure in March 2020. The 24-room inn, set on an 8-acre estate just outside Healdsburg in Sonoma County, California, was purchased in 2021 by St. Helena-based designer Jay Jeffers and his partner, Cory Schisler (formerly of Viceroy Hotels). It has since undergone a comprehensive $6 million renovation. The original three-story gabled mansion, overlooking Dry Creek Valley, was built in 1880 by John Alexander Paxton as a weekend retreat from San Francisco. Around 750 pieces of furniture came with the estate when it was acquired, and a third of these have been reintegrated into the new, more contemporary interior design, including the 200-year-old piano that now stands in the Drawing Room.
