The scenery here is fantastic. The location is perfect for its beauty and convenience. (We walked from the boat, with two roll-aboards, no problem.) The 1BR suite rooms are lovely, with a luxe-felling contemporary decor. There's a fully stocked kitchen and eating area with table--you could easily spend a week here on vacation. Personal spa tubs, wood burning fires and grills compliment the massive outdoor spaces. The only minor gripe was the shower, which was a tad small, and oddly laid out. Did I mention the views? You could spend all day sitting on the grass watching boats steam by, then all night on your patio watching the moon rise over Mt. Baker. In terms of the mechanics, check in was a breeze (3 mins, tops) and Connie, the owner, personally, gave us a friendly welcome and just enough info to get us up to speed. The outdoor pizza bistro is charming and quick while the dining room menu (did not try) featured West Coast cuisine standards and thoughtfully curated wine list. (Or you can just buy fresh fish off the ferry dock Saturdays and cook in your room.) Yes, I paid almost as much as I paid for my last stay in Yountville -- but I felt I was getting value, as opposed to paying extra just to be where the action was.
