Great place for a larger family or group to stay. Rustic, with some newer rooms that are quite nice. Rooms designed to accomodate families (bunk beds in the large rooms). Room charge includes 3 buffet style meals a day, for two. Hearty fare by Henry, the extremely nice chef. Nice main building with a great fireplace and a wonderful place to lounge and or enjoy a pre or post dinner drink. Good hikes right at your front door, and a good surfing beach with good parking straight down the road 3.5 miles. The heart of the Santa Barbara wine country is nearby as well. Looks like there is a continuing upgrade process underway, though the grounds need to be completed and the pool area updated to "impress" the clientele.....The staff is more than nice. Horseback rides are available 3 times a day. GM has a good resume so i would expect it to only get better. Good place!!! Great people.
