Beautiful grounds and eclectic architectural design provide a nice backdrop for your stay at this small Inn. We stayed in 2 different rooms: Room 1: The Grasshopper room was small and rather dark but nicely decorated and clean. Claw-foot tub in the room is charming but the commode/shower room is very small - barely room to stand, and it can... More

This is a really lovely, peaceful place. We stayed in the Treehouse - a large, gorgeous, and supremely comfortable upstairs room. The inn is located well off the main highway, away from all the traffic and noise of downtown, but still within walking distance to everything -- restaurants, shops, bicycle/equestrian/pedestrian path, museums, art galleries, etc. There's also great hiking and...

Everything about the Emerald Iguana Inn is wonderful and magical. We were able to relax in this beautiful environment immediately. The service great, rooms cute, pool area lovely. Spent most of our time under the umbrellas in the pool area reading. At night, it was wonderful to sit outside and just look at the stars. This inn differs from others... More

I am usually disappointed by hotels/inns/B&Bs in that they rarely hold up to their websites descripions. I kept telling the wonderful people at The Emerald Iguana that their website didn't do them justice. The setting, the grounds, the pool area are idyllic. It was such a cozy spot and the rooms were spacious, well-decorated and felt like a high-quality home... More

We stayed in the Peacock room for two nights and it was just lovely. There is an air conditioner in the bedroom that is hard to find so we baked the first night but the second was great. Breakfast is quite nice and the grounds are pretty.

Beautiful and charming cottage with great furniture and beds. Plus loads of kitchen stuff. Had a quiet beer on the porch before hitting the town! Small pool and lounge area for further relaxation. Try the Hub bar in town for good beer.

We spent almost a week at the Emerald Iguana Inn and were delighted. Our suite, the Leaf, was quite comfortable, well decorated with some original artwork, and large for just 2 persons. While the breakfast was strictly continental (nothing hot, except toasted bagels), eating by the pool was charming. The grounds are lovely.

Truly a little bit of paradise. It is a great getaway and so close to LA. The sky was blue as if to tell us even the weather is consistent with the simple beauty of these accommodations. Look around. Hear the noise? Of course you don't. So quiet and serene you'll think that you were in Emerson's cabin near Walden... More

My daughter and I went for a mother-daughter retreat. We got the 2 hour massage special with in room massages. The grounds were lovely. The room was spacious with our own patio, in room claw foot tub and separate shower. The breakfast was fine. We were given recommendations for restaurants that were right on.
