My wife and I love to camp, and are going to Yellowstone this June, tho others consider outdoor living to be a nightmare. So it is with St Orres, from reading some of the reviews here, not everyone truly desires rustic surroundings. To us, it is the perfect combination of rusticity and civility, and a more unusual property would be hard to find. We stayed in the Wake Robin cabin, with all of the windows facing the side of the creek. Looking out, all we saw was the redwood forest in all directions, immediately outside the glass. There was a small deck, which was in view of the parking area and 2 cabins, but we otherwise felt in our own world in the Wake Robin. The carpeting, bedding and furnishings were new or nearly so, the delivered breakfast in the morning was memorable, and the communal sauna and hot tub were just steps away from our front door. I thought it a nice touch that they had real wine glasses in the room, much nicer than a highball glass or plastic cup you'd expect. We ate at the restaurant the last night, and felt it was a 4-to-5 star meal, very good to excellent. My wife had the local salmon, I had the wild boar, and service was very attentive tho never intrusive. Their sous chef that night was remarkable.
btw, our other meal was in Gualala at the Bones Roadhouse, and for bbq was very good, the brisket being some of the best I've had.
We're returning in 2 weeks for 2 nights. See you there.
