I was looking for a place that was not too far from home and for just a night. I needed a break from Los Angeles. I had no idea this place existed--tucked away on Topanga Canyon. The hosts, Teresa and Bruce, are truly wonderful, warm and friendly. The house is gorgeous. The breakfast is excellent. This is a great place whether you're a local looking for something lovely and rural-feeling, an out-of-towner coming in to visit. Kudos to Bruce and Teresa.
