I will never forget my week long vacation here at Kindred Spirits, Magellan Inn. I rode horses every day and was right in the middle of the most beautiful wildlife, nature, beaches I visited on my own as a single female in my 30s. It was a little remote but worth it completely to be at this inn on the... More

My husband and I stayed there 3 nights. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the Inn. We even took long naps which were never disrupted by any noise. We came to rest and we got it. The breakfast was always made fresh with wonderful home made warm bread:) The girls that took care of us couldn't be any more... More

Peaceful, relaxing, and there is a yoga platform. You can get yoga instruction and classes but I used the area to meditate and practice a few moves on my own. Staff was helpful and the breakfast of fruit, roll, and coffee worked great for me.

Stayed there for a weekend to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. Super late check-in.. Had to wait an hour to get the room ready. The room was very simple. The bed covers were awful.. It was old and full of stains. Kind of disgusting.. The A/C wasnt working properly, and the wi-fi didnt work in the room, only in the front... More
