This large, clean, beautiful custom-designed house at the edge of a forest was great. We paid for a smaller room, but our friendly host offered us the larger one for the same price since it was empty. Wow, that was nice of her!
The room was beautifully furnished, not frilly and stupid, with high ceilings and solid, muted colors, skylights, and a big whirlpool tub. We also had a very small balcony with a view of the big back yard that merges right into a forest. We were told to keep alert for cougar and bear.
Best about Dreamings, though, was the quiet, the fresh air,and the breakfasts--Josephine really knows what she's doing in the kitchen. The salmon scrambled eggs were divine. (Just be clear about exactly what you do and don't eat if you're some variety of vegetarian.)
The basket of muffins and scones--also homemade--were amazingly delicious, and our host encouraged us to take the leftovers.
Everything about this place is great, if you don't remind the remote location; for us, that just made it better. Overall, highly recommended.
