Three couples, three cabins, terrific experience ~ we're already planning our return! Charmingly renovated with many recycled, locally sourced and new materials, sensitive to the site in maintaining the footprint and appearance of historic farm buildings, and providing amenities in a compact, delightful, immaculate space, these cabins perfectly suited six friends. The largest of the cottages has a kitchen and living area that comfortably accommodated all of us for dining, though cooking in the smaller cabins was pleasant, too. From the sunny deck of the second cottage we lolled over books and watched grazing deer, a pony nickering in the pasture, and hummers zipping among the late flowers. A beautiful cedar fence provides privacy, and while the landscaping is new and in progress, it proffered colorful, aromatic coreopsis, lavender and nodding nasturtiums for salads. Peggy, the friendly, warm innkeeper, offered something better than fruit in the fridge - she invited us to pick pears and apples right from the trees, and slurp we did. Sleekly nostalgic, the Airstream is now used by the innkeeper's brother who was fascinating, well-read on a wide range of topics, and extremely responsive. Michael chatted when we wished, and shared photographs from his own photojournalism, and disappeared otherwise, shuttering his windows so we were unaware of his presence. He thoughtfully turned on the little fireplace, warming the room in the evening. A planted redwood trellis was in the works, so the Airstream will no longer be any intrusion on the nearest cabin.
Tidepooling and birding in the area are stellar, and biking to town, the beach, or a nearby redwood grove is easy and safe. Pescadero's two bakery/delies, one with a stunning imported pizza oven, both carrying produce and cheese from the surrounding farms, local and farther ranging pickles, sauces, and jams, homemade savory and sweet breads, and terrific sandwiches or fixings, along with Duarte's, a James Beard classic American food award-winner, offering many artichoke dishes from the garden behind the restaurant, make dining easy if you'd rather not cook. We'd stayed at nearby Costanoa resort on previous occasions, but it doesn't hold a candle to Pescadero Bed & Biscuit, and it's more expensive. I can't account for the complaints of Eric T: we stayed in the SAME cabin he did, the three days prior to his stay. Perhaps this simple, charming, imminently affordable, locally rooted experience just isn't for everyone, but having experienced Peggy's great spot, we would never stay anywhere else in the area!
All three cabins are charming. The one with a separate bedroom is convivial for parties of several...
