Green Initiatives at Honor Mansion
Here at the Honor Mansion we are continuously innovating our practices to be more sustainable. Our owners, Steve and Cathi Fowler, have strived to keep the authenticity of the property’s history and original greenery. From towering redwood trees to our wisteria, camellia, citrus, and oak. We deeply appreciate the beauty and bounty that surrounds us at the Honor Mansion. To show our gratitude, the Honor Mansion team is actively dedicated to maintaining and protecting our precious resources and are always expanding upon how we can reduce our carbon footprint.
Our Sustainability Practices
- Our expansive onsite flower gardens are picked seasonally to decorate each guest room and common area around the property.
- We’ve always grown our own heirloom tomatoes to use for our breakfast and appetizer dishes. This year, we will be planting cilantro, chiles and tomatillos for our fresh salsas too.
- Our fruit trees, from figs to citrus, are used by our kitchen staff for appetizers, breakfast and infused water.
- In support of waste reduction, we have discontinued our use of travel sized amenities and now have ecofriendly dispenser systems in each room.
- Our water conservation initiative includes our towel and linen reuse program.
- Herbs, such as mint and rosemary, are sourced from our gardens for seasonings and garnishes.
- Instead of plastic single use key cards, our guest rooms have specialty designed reusable keys that are specifically made for each room.
- We source locally from businesses like Bay Area Coffee, Costeaux French Bakery, Golden Gate Meat Company and Dutcher Crossing for the items we provide to our guests.
- Our recycling program takes the guess work out of recycling. We recycle for you!
- To reduce our carbon footprint, solar panels are used to heat our 40-foot lap pool.
- COMING SOON: The Honor Mansion will be getting rid of plastic water bottles. A new filtration
and glass bottle system will soon replace them.
