We've just come back from a lovely stay at Meadowlark. Lovely? It was AWESOME! The grounds were beautiful. The house was big and beautiful yet so comfy and cozy. Our room upstairs was exceptionally well decorated, squeaky clean and stocked with amazing books to enjoy. Not just 1,000 page sleepers but giant, heavy, beautiful books on The Louvre, Horses of the World, and Africa, (just to name a few). One night we sat downstairs by the fire and looked through some of them while we enjoyed our anniversary cake. For breakfast we dined with Richard and Kurt (our gracious hosts), and two other guests, (aloha!). The food was delicious including herbs from their garden and farm fresh eggs from their chickens. As I think back at all of the details, I can't imagine a better place to have stayed. People, friends and new acquaintances are really important to me. The more that my husband and I travel, and we do LOTS of mini as well as big adventures, the more interested I am in new friendships and learning about new things. One breakfast with Kurt and Richard left us with such a wonderful feeling of "being in the right place at the right time".
If you want to stay in a positive and healthy environment with two wonderful hosts, at an amazing property, literally minutes from town, you must stay here.
We've just gotten back home and are already talking about visiting again in August when the grape vines throughout Calistoga will be loaded with beautiful grapes. Oh, and the wine tasting!! Fantastic. 400 vineyards all within a days' reach.
Richard and Kurt... thank you so much. You two are really a joy to be around.
Jodi and Eric
