We had the best time at this place! Lloyd, the owner, was sweet enough to let us borrow his anti-gravity lounge chairs which we luxuriously sat in every morning on the huge wraparound deck, staring up at the treetops, listening to the wind in the trees and the birds and squirrels living in them. Paul, the caretaker next door, welcomed us with cookies (fabulous, baked right in Graeagle!) and poetry and stories that tickled us and made us laugh. He is a rare combination of local expert, worldly wisdom and a tremendous sense of humor. Lloyd also gave us a tip on stopping at Ikeda's in Auburn to buy their Apple Cinnamon Swirl bread, which he insisted was best when cut to 3/16 of an inch thick and then toasted. Turns out he was precisely right! The house was so comfortable - we felt at home instantly. A short 5 minute walk to the store, or restaurant or the Mill Pond, but in an extremely quiet residential neighborhood where we felt safe and protected and warm. The photos on this page don't do the place justice. The front stairway is a masterpiece of stone, wood and living plants. There is a large, grassy side yard ripe for barbecuing and relaxing. We loved every minute and wish we didn't have jobs and could be there right now! The beds were great, and the kitchen was equipped with every tool imaginable. Writing this makes me feel homesick. I want to go to Graeagle now!
