My husband and I just returned from our two-night stay in the Pine Haven cottage at St. Orres. This was our first time to the area, and this hotel definitely contributed to the fun weekend we had.
First, we are grateful to St. Orres for being dog friendly. We enjoyed being greeted by the four St. Orres dogs when we checked in.
A variety of cottages to choose from, some in the Russian design which was fun and interesting. There was a sense of privacy.
The St. Orres restaurant was wonderful, but very expensive, so be prepared
The very thoughtful and delicious breakfast was left at the cottage door (just a knock and away they went, you didn't have to let them in)
You can hear Sea Lions barking from the cottage
Loved seeing deer eating under the apple tree just after sunset and before sunrise
We loved walking the Bluff Trail starting at Gualala Point Regional Park, visiting Fort Ross, the Annapolis Winery, and the Sea Ranch Chapel.
The lack of a TV was disappointing, but even worse was the lack of cellular service, or even Wi-Fi. So research everything before you go! We had to drive to Point Arena to connect to the internet which we use contantly
Our cottage needed to have the carpets cleaned, or better yet replaced with tile or hardwood floor
We didn't see any outside garbage can for the dog poop bag, but we left it by the front door and it was taken away when the cottage was cleaned
Thank you, St. Orres, we had a lovely time!
