We stayed here 12 yrs ago and they had the most wonderful apricot soap. We even got housekeeping to give us a few extras when we left. Unfortunately they no longer have that soap. The manager told us that the company that made it for them went out of business a couple years ago. The current Sicilian Red Orange soap is nice, but... we really miss the apricot.
Last time we stayed on the upper floor of the Meadowview Fourplex, down by the tennis courts. It had a stunning view of the sheep meadow and the Pacific, but we felt separate from the rest of the property. This time we were in a Meadowview Triplex directly adjacent to the restaurant. I was afraid it might be too noisy, but it was fine. They'd just finished painting the outside when we arrived. The farmhouse dates back to 1850 and the bunkhouse to 1852. The rooms are cozy and comfortable. It's not a 5 star hotel, it's a ranch property. The best thing is that it is close to town but not in town, where the constant crowds and traffic would be numbing. This place is a great escape, a place to relax and chill out.
The restaurant is quite nice with good sized portions, serving only dinner. Yes, the free continental breakfast reminds me of a Hilton Express, but there are plenty of places in town if you want something more substantial. Go there to enjoy the atmosphere and the views.
