We rented one of the two bedroom cottages for 3 nights in August '12 and were surprised at how clean and spacious it was. It appeared to have had some updates since some of these reviews were posted. First of all, the kitchen had all modern appliances, countertops, and flooring. And there were outlet adapters in every plug. Also, the rest of the cottage had what appeared to be new carpet. Yes, the bathroom was original 1950's, but we found the sparkly countertops and pink tile to be charming.
We have and will continue to recommend this place to friends and family for a number of reasons:
The cottages have a grassy front yard separated from the road by large hedges + a fenced in back patio area. This is different from most other hotels where you have a tiny patio (at best) for outdoor space.
The cottage was quite large. I would guess 1000 sq. feet. We comfortably fit 4 adults and 3 young children.
The location was outstanding. Walking distance from wine tasting rooms, gorgeous views of the oak covered hills from the pool, out of the fog zone, near playgrounds and hiking and a river for splashing in.
Most of all, the owners of this place were delightful. They were calm, kind, and responsive to our needs. Their personal touches are all over the main area of the hotel, from a collection of potted plants to patio chairs with wrought-iron suns on them.
We can't wait to come back.
