My husband, kids, and I stayed here for a quick one night getaway, what a find! The home is beautiful and the two rooms we had were perfect, with a Jack and Jill bathroom separating them. Mike and Fran were so hospitable, with a nice happy hour on the deck, and amazing homemade cookies. They were even kind enough to let our kids feed their koi fish while we were all outside talking. In the morning breakfast was amazing, just ask my 8 year old who cleaned his plate. To be honest, I am not sure who enjoyed the stay more, my husband and myself or the kids. We will definitely come back, kids or no kids
My wife and I stayed here for two nights while touring the California foothills' apple and wine production region. Great location in close proximity to just about everything you'd want to visit in the area, and a beautiful former home that the owners have converted into an excellent place for visitors to the area. The owners, Mike & Fran, couldn't be more hospitable, made us feel completely at home, and made delicious breakfasts every day. Will definitely return to stay here the next time we're out their way.
Mike and Fran were wonderful hosts. They are very thoughtful and detail-oriented and it shows! When I arrived, they introduced themselves and gave me a tour. The place is well-maintained inside and out. Mike is a builder/ woodworker, so it's infused with his artistry. They have water, coffee, tea and creamer easily accessible in the dining room downstairs, as well as a place to relax indoors and play board games. Their back porch is screened-in, which is great because otherwise the mosquitos in this area will eat you alive. There are lots of comfortable seats, and a day bed! For less mosquito-y seasons, the gazebo looks inviting as well. When we came back late in the evening, romantic music was playing in the house, which set a lovely mood. The room itself was CLEAN, luxurious, and welcoming. The shower has two heads! And a heater! And a place to sit! It was fantastic! The next morning, Mike served us a delicious breakfast made by Fran (I am stealing her recipe ideas because hubby loved it). They even accommodated his lactose intolerance. I hope to return for our anniversary or other special occasions in the future! …
Fran & Mike gave us a warm welcome, making us feel right at home. They prepared paleo friendly breakfasts for us that were outstanding! In the evenings, they offered wine and dessert, and weather permitting, a gathering in the gazebo. We couldn't have asked for more gracious hosts or 5 star accommodations! We will definitely be back.
This was a great find! We stayed at North Canyon Inn while visiting Apple Hill for the first time. The room, house and surroundings were beautiful and peaceful. Our hosts, Mike & Fran were really nice and we enjoyed getting to know them. They serve a delicious breakfast at 9am and wine & dessert at 8pm. There's just a few guest rooms so it was a nice, small group when everyone is seated at breakfast. It's a very short drive to all the sights at Apple Hill- we even took a quick trip for cider donuts before breakfast. We will definitely be back!
