We just returned from our stay at the McCormick House, What a wonderful place to stop! The home itself is set off the road on a beautiful piece of land. Flowers, Shrubs, Trees, walk ways, it is just the prettiest setting, and the fragrance, take in the fresh air and sweet smells, you have now entered an oasis of serenity! We were welcomed by two very beautiful WHITE cats, each having one blue eye and one yellow, how cute and friendly. We were a little taken-a-back upon entering, just not sure where to go, not sure we weren't entgering someone's home, but there was Mauro, one of the owners, he promptly gave us a warm welcome and up we all went to the room for the night. WOW, it was just beautiful. Everything was done to the enth degree - talk about decor, they had it right! The room was full of antiques, even the alarm clock, which surprised me, because most places just put in a digital one! Lighting is perfect, a lamp wherever you need one, read, the lamp was well palced. The dresser, yup, there was another lamp. And the little alcove with the coffee pot (Peets Coffee) was all set up with fruit, homemade Muffins or Scones every morning. Everything you could possibly need was at hand, cups, cream, water, sweetner, paper goods, garbage and of course another beautiful and well placed lamp. Large closet, great for those of us traveling, but staying several days. Then we get to the bed and bedding, WOW, I wish
I could recreat this in my home, the FEATHER BED was something you just dream about (literally), you sink into it and then top it off with yet another feather down quilt, so great, it was hard to unfurl out of in the AM! The quilts, pillows, chairs, setee, drapers etc, wow, a delight to the eye and a most inviting place to relax, read a great book, drink coffee/.tea and just veg out! We totally enjoyed every minute. The Lav was another wonder - you were supplied with everything anyone could ever need or want - especially if you forgot anything, Lisa had it on hand in stock in the closet, Plush towels, wash cloths, Organic Lavender Soaps including shampoo and cream rinse, not to mention the extra toothbrush, q-tips, tissues and various unsundries! You will want for NOTHING! Especially if you need a quiet respit from the variety of area vacation spots. Half Moon Bay is only 22 miles as it Santa Cruz, great places to visit during the day, but remembering all the time you will have this GREAT home to return to. We thank Lisa and Mauro for all their hospitality, friendliness, and most of all the warm and lovely oasis they have provided in their home called the McCormick House. Thank you both!
