    Great experience. Excellent food. Rooms were clean yet spacious and had a sense of home. I would highly recommend the Ventana experience for anyone who wants to get away to a quiet place for relaxing and adventure.

    Didn't realize this was not an option any more. While breakfast at the main lobby was great, we really enjoy going over to the restaurant and enjoying the view. The Ventana is our Happy Place and has been for nearly 30 years.
