Best birthday EVER at the Testa House!
I recently celebrated my 40th birthday here at Testa House with three of my girlfriends. We had the time of our lives! First of all, the farmhouse is absolutely precious. From the black and white tiled floor in the kitchen to the bed on the sleeping porch, everything is just charming. Maria is a doll and provides so many little extras in the house: fresh flowers, fresh fruit, blankets for snuggling on the couch, coffee in the kitchen, games in the living room, bath salts for the clawfoot tub, etc. The master bed is HUGE and oh so comfy. All the beds in house are, in fact, very comfy. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, pots and pans; there was even a salad spinner and a juicer!
The grounds are just as delightful. There are two roosters, four ADORABLE baby pigs and a cow who is not a fan of people, but who was starting to get used to us by the end of our stay. Maria's garden is amazing! We picked a couple squash and sautéed them in olive oil - so yummy! There is a large pond with a row boat. My girlfriends and I used the row boat and went out on the pond right before we left. It was lovely and peaceful out there, the perfect end to our stay.
Maria is an amazing hostess and she always nearby or just a phone call away if you need something. I accidentally locked myself out of the house once and she just happened to be gardening then, and whipped out another set of keys for me in no time flat. My girls and I went to Orr Hot Springs (so relaxing!) and had sushi dinner at Oco (yummy!) in downtown Ukiah. None of my crew are drinkers, but if you are into wine tasting, you will be in heaven.
I simply cannot recommend Testa House enough. I cannot wait to come back.
