I was up from San Francisco with a friend for a couple days of R&R and was looking for a cheap motel. I'm so glad that I chose The Woods as I got much more than I bargained for. The whole experience was wonderful and just kept getting better. There was ample off-street parking. The grounds were gorgeous, with an impressive diversity of container gardening; their beauty and marvelous scents creating a pleasing and relaxing atmosphere throughout. The staff was very welcoming, knowledgeable, and helpful regarding local information. Michael was the consummate host. Our stay was mid-week just prior to the "season" kick off, and my impression is that there were only two other couples as guests. Even so, Michael laid a beautiful fire in the outdoor fireplace adjacent to the pool. The guests spontaneously gathered with drinks fireside. The cool night air, the warm glow of the crackling fire, and the glowing cinders climbing into a star-filled night sky all made for an experience well beyond anything I could have imagined. As an additional treat for the senses I availed myself of the opportunity to have a brief aux natural dip in the pool. The vibe was welcoming, helpful, and inclusive. The experience was extraordinary and will always be remembered as having become more than the sum of its parts. I need to do this more often; and now I know the best place for me to go. The Woods is truly my newfound "little slice of heaven".
