The Cottage is a hidden gem at Glen Oaks. Tucked back in the redwoods, it has the feel of a secluded getaway. The building has a simple, beach cottage look with weathered boards and just the right amount of overgrowth. Inside the lines are simple and tastefully elegant. The amenities are tailored to high-end naturalists - organic handcrafted soap, artisan teas, fluffy terrycloth robes, and wooded views out every window. The kitchen is fully functioning and artistically retro. Kitchenware is provided, however, due to its small size, it is best to have done all the food prep before arriving. We had gourmet meals and desserts prepared ahead of time and only needed cook time. The Glen Oaks staff was helpful, courteous, and friendly. I can't imagine a more comfortable, relaxing environment. The Cottage will not satisfy a need for gaudy luxury, but Hearst Castle is just two hours down the road. Peaceful, tasteful, comfortable, with just the right amount of panache - Glen Oaks is the romantic ideal.
