We LOvE this place! We stay at the Shangri-La property that is offsite from main cottages. It's right on the water and we were able to see whales from our deck! Private Hot Tub and there's also a kitchen area that is stocked with pots and pans in case you want to just hide away and cook! We were greeted... More

This is my favorite part of the year. My partner and I started coming here to wind down after the busy Christmas holiday season and we love it. It's a short and incredibly beautiful drive from San Francisco. The hot tub (open 24 hours!), nestled in the trees and under the stars with an ocean view, is the perfect way... More

We have been living in a temporary, tiny, yardless 1 BR place in San Francisco with our baby and dog, and were desperate for a quiet weekend away. This was a good spot. Mendocino is closer than I realized, and the drive here on 128 was lovely (though I definitely wouldn't recommend doing it after dark). The people were very... More

My husband and I booked ourselves a room for 2 nights (baby moon!) Sandy was very nice to slip in a bottle of sparkling Apple juice (no alcohol unfortunately) to celebrate. The food here (breakfast) here was amazing - my husband loved it so much he has already decided to come back again for the food (this says something especially... More

This was an excellent find. Right from check-in you know it's going to be good - the staff were really friendly. Great cottage that has all the amenities and things you need for a short or long stay. Very nice touch to find a bottle of wine ready and waiting when we arrived. Perfect spot to hang out at night... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend for our two year anniversary celebration. This place came highly recommended by his sister in law. We had a wonderful experience and the weekend was definitely more amazing than I could've hoped for. Thanks for the wonderful weekend.

We have been returning to the Inn at School House Creek for twenty years or so, and we always enjoy our stay immensely. Beautiful grounds, slightly rustic rooms, and exceptional breakfasts. Many rooms give you a view of the Pacific which in this area is not an ocean, but a god. We never consider staying anywhere else.

We stayed in the Shangri La Cottage..... from the moment we opened the gate to the cottage we knew this was going to be an amazing mini anniversay vacation. The view was breathtaking and the cottage was perfect for us and our two Boxers. We pretty much never left except to walk the dogs. The cottage is so secluded on... More
