Guest Reviews

Cada – December 2018

“I love this spot. Its deliciously quiet in this sweet little cottage tucked up under the edge of the redwoods. The location is really lovely and I could feel and see the love and care that the various inhabitants of this wee community are giving to the land they share. I wanted to stay longer but it was a busy work time for me and this was a working weekend so I was gone during the days. I fantasize about staying here for a pure personal retreat some time and enjoying the place in a more leisurely manner.”
