My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend and found the property to be incredible. This ocean front property had huge cliffs to the ocean which was one view. We stayed in a tree house and found the view of the mountains impressive. Our experience was that it was incredibly quiet on the weekend, although due to exansion efforts we did hear the big construction activity during the two week days. We found it to be very private, and even though the dining was shared with outside visitors, we did not see people milling around.
The food at the restaurant was very well done. You couldn't have asked for more.
I liked our room. You must know before coming, however,
that you will be staying in the "woods" if you are in the tree houses. They were well done and most comfortable but obviously done to relfect the woods you were staying in. There were slate finishes and a woodsie feel. NOT PRIMATIVE but rusticly fun. I liked the fact that the mini-bar was supplied nicely and you weren't nickled and dimed for what you used. All the snacks, fruit and wine in the room were complimentary.
We had a session with the Shaman who was an interesting guy. It was worth working with him. You should try it.
Also, the former owner of the property whose grandfather actually settled this area of California gave a flora and fauna trail tour of the property which was interesting. He gave one insites into the settlement of the area.
The area has FABULOUS hiking. You can hire a guide but it is not necessary.
We had a few little gliches during our stay which made us a bit disappointed. I contacted the Inn after our stay and we were followed up promptly by Dan Priano, General Manager, by phone. He was most concerned and very detailed about each concern. He had researched which employee might have been able to be more helpful and was he was not defensive at all, just wanting to improve his resorts services. I appreciated his personal followup.
If you read through all the trip advisors comments I think you will find a fair rating of the facility. We will try it again one day.
