We spent 2 nights in the Thyme Cottage. This separate unit was extremely quiet and comfortable. A Dog-friendly place that provided dog dishes and bed. The property is bordered by woods and a creek. Unfortunately, the small onsite restaurant was closed due to the departure of the chef. Still, the best stay of our California Coast road trip.

We had stayed at Inn at Schoolhouse Creek couple years ago and found the place to be excellent. We were hoping for a similar experience this time as well, however, we were a little disappointed. We stayed at the Anderson Valley room. We found the bathroom was not properly cleaned upon checkin. Also, the exhaust fan in the bathroom too was not working. It was also a little disappointing to know that they don't serve breakfast here anymore as well. All in all, the location is very convenient. Hopefully they improve things a bit and get back to being a great place to stay once again.

We celebrated our 16th anniversary at the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek and stayed in the Water Tower cottage, how cool! Sans the historic value it is a super cool spot! Amazing views, private hot tub, fireplace....and beautiful grounds added with friendly staff with an excellent attention do detail! Even left a personalized card and wine to help us celebrate! Thank you Kate and all, see you again soon

We spent two nights in the Anderson Valley room. Very comfortable with plenty of coffee and a good shower considering the severe drought underway in Northern California. Easy access to many attractions and wineries from this location. Much cooler than further inland. Needed the propane fired stove at night.

The inn is cute, the service is great. They have both rooms and cottages. We ended up staying in a room that had a beautiful, ocean view. However, the rooms have very very thin walls with poor noise isolation. We went hoping for a relaxing anniversary getaway and were woken up early every morning due to the kids in the next room. The inn keeper provided us with ear plugs and a fan but it did not help and we had 3 nights of disturbed sleep instead of relaxation. Would not recommend the rooms to folks looking to relax and catch up on sleep.
