The reviews here on Tripadvisor are mixed, and understandably so. This is a very eclectic place catering to those adventuresome people looking for a relaxing but unique experience. Most of the other guests had been there previously, and were returning because this place is really special. We loved it, and will be returning ourselves soon for a longer stay. We... More

Please check this place out before deciding to stay or make a reservation. The pictures on the website are misleading, and I question the stellar reviews from people who claim they have stayed here. We made reservations in advance because of its location and charming photos on the web. When we arrived, we thought it was a movie set for... More

My wife and I stayed in The Howard Creek Ranch on Labor day weekend this year. We were torn about staying here because of the mixed reviews. While most reviews were positive, there were some serious concerns on some of the less than stellar reviews. So I will try and put this in terms so you understand what you are... More

In starting to write this review I realized the "Judy M" had almost perfectly described our stay (except for the late arrival), clear down to the grey kitty. The Redwood Suite had a beautiful long copper tray that held 10 years worth of guest books that were a wonder to read ( and, no, I did not read them all!).... More

It's been years since we stayed there but what an experience! Charming rooms all very different from another. I'd love to stay in the one with the outdoor sleeping space. The nature trail had some surprises that delighted us...wont' say what and ruin it for another. Breakfast was fantastic. The beach...perfect.

We stayed here for two nights, in the Sun Room. It was a fun and fantastic stay overall and a much better room than I was expecting: clean, beautiful furniture and fabrics and in part of the property that was packed with history and sympathetically kept in a traditional style. I found it charming and rejuvenating to be away from... More

We arrived very late, 10:30 p.m., but Sally left us directions to our room along with some flashlights. We were tired from a very long drive so having to get back in our car to drive to the carriage house made us a little grumpy. We made it though and when we walked into our Redwood Suite we were instantly... More

OK, we know that some people find this place "charming" and "rustic" and "relaxing" but depending on your point of view other appropriate words which are just as accurate are "run down," "musty" and "like staying on a construction site." As long as you know what to expect, the place is fine, but really, the web site gives one no... More

We have been coming for several years now and absolutely love it. if you love perfection, dull rooms that look just like the one next door, or no individualism, please stay somewhere else. This is a place that makes you feel like you are getting to go see those great relatives that have the great place to run and play... More

I found the Ranch on the internet and booked the beach house for myself, husband and son (19). My husbands parents were also on the trip and stayed in the blue room, I think. We arrived on a gloriously sunny day and crossed the little footbridge to get to the carriage house. First we were slightly put off by the... More
