Lovely location with well-kept grounds. If you've checked your map, you'll know there is no beach or view of the Pacific from this location. The trees and surroundings, though are lovely. MANY opportunities to view birds (from the tiniest tit to gigantic turkey vultures nesting above). The rooms are well-appointed with plenty of towels and fluffy down comforters. There is little to no insulation in the lodges. Meaning, during the sunny days your place WILL get warm and during the chilly nights; quite cold. Most rooms have fireplaces AND/OR heaters, so you should be fine. The restaurant is great, with many healthy (& organic) options. Here is the potential rub: We stayed in lodge #16 which is QUITE removed from the front desk. A large group was partying in the middle of the night on the lawn outside our spot and we really had no recourse. We could get up, stick our heads out the door and ask a bunch of drunk college kids to keep it down and hope for the best. If that didn't work, we would have to get in our car, drive down to the reception area and ask for help. They pride themselves on being a technology-free spot, which I admire. But I think a house phone for emergencies and lobby calls should be provided, at least to the more remote dwellings.
