A Wonderful Stay
If you are looking for an enjoyable, unique place to stay, with terrific hosts, this is the place! The pictures are accurate - the views are amazing and the room is cozy and welcoming. The pool, spa and sauna are private and such a nice treat to have waiting for you whenever you want to use them. Don't expect the pool to be warm unless you visit during the warm weather when it can be heated by the sun's rays, but the spa and sauna are always just right. If you're looking for a fancy hotel, this isn't the place for you, but if want a place a little bit rustic (and a place for your dog to run around if you have one), this is the place. And, if possible, plan to taste some wine with Holly and Eric. They have lots of great stories to tell and are wonderful, wonderful hosts.
Thank you for the great review! We really enjoy guests like you coming to enjoy our little piece of paradise here.
Although the owner specifically said to alert them when we arrived they were not there and seemed puzzled/irritated when we did contact them. We found an insect in our bed and there were hundreds of ants in the kitchen. The grounds were overgrown and untended. The swimming pool was very small and extremely cold. Apparently from other reviews they have been saying that they are going to fix the front deck but that was not fixed and there was a heater that was not working. Yes, the views are spectacular, but that is about the only positive thing I can say. They could have a special place, but it needs maintenance and care.
I almost did not even want to respond to this unfair, terrible review, but I feel compelled to correct a few things. Check in time is 3:30. I waited until 4:30 for you to arrive. I had a very important meeting I had to be to by 5:20. You called me on the phone after I had left the property and I told you to call me if you had any questions. Also, my husband was there at the property and I called him and told him you had arrived. So he was there to answer any questions you may have had or helped you with anything you may have needed. We like to give guests their privacy. You must have missed the star gazing, with no light pollution here it is a
favorite. Guests bring telescopes to see the planets and love to star gaze. I left detailed instructions for you. In the description we explain that the Inn is rustic. The Inn is very clean and spotless. There is also a notice about keeping all of your food in the refrigerator as to not attract ants. I was there yesterday and today and I did not see one ant. We did have a very large limb on a large oak tree go down last week, across the road, and they are still clearing the area. So sorry for this, but it is being taken care of. The swimming pool is a small kidney shaped pool and is heated by the sun and with the temperatures over one hundred the cool pool is very refreshing and easy to get acclimated to. The water is a perfect temperature. The gas wall fireplace is waiting for new parts that were ordered as I stated. There are 3 other sources of heat in the house, 1. an electric heater, 2. an electric type pot belly heater with flame, and 3. a wood burning stove that was ready to light. In this heat wave, I really don't think you even need to use any of the 4 heaters, let alone complain about it. All four fans and the air conditioning unit are working fine. That is really what matters this time of year is staying cool. The plans for the deck are in to planning and building as well as another deck on the back side. This takes time with plans and revisions. The building department is 6 to 8 months out on inspections, I have no control over this. I am sorry you were not happy with your stay. It is very rare for us to have guests so upset as you are. We take all constructive criticism to heart and we continue to better our best for our guests.
Great property and experience
We celebrated New Year 2017 here with a group of 5 people. The location is incredibly beautiful, the room is large and comfortable, everything was clean and worked. The hot tub, sauna, and pool made the experience even more special. Thank you, Holly!
I am glad you all had a wonderful stay. Thank you for the nice review.
One of the best vacations we ever had.
Thank you for your awesome review! I was so happy that you enjoyed your stay. I wanted you to have your own space, so that you could enjoy the beauty of the ranch to the fullest. We strive to make improvements to the ranch and the grounds. Winters can be a challenge, although the whether was pretty nice the last few days, almost like Spring.
Nice cozy place
We had a very nice stay here over Thanksgiving weekend. The suite was well equipped with everything we needed, and was very cozy and comfortable. It was kind of cool also to be staying above the barn where wine is made. The owners were not there at the time, but emailed us very good detailed directions, and left other instructions in the room (such as how to operate the fireplaces/heaters). Although we did not get to meet them, they seemed to be very thoughtful and warm hosts.
The views were amazing, unfortunately the weather was not great during our stay but we did get to see enough of the views each morning, watching the sun poke out and the fog move through the hills and valleys. Even the views driving down the long driveway were amazing. Truly beautiful. We only wished that on the kitchen side of the suite there was a deck where we could have sat out and enjoyed the view (under a blanket, with coffee!) Or at least had a nice, large window to sit in front of inside. If the owners do add a small deck there it would be great. To really see the view from the suite, we had to stand by the small window in the corner by the microwave. During warmer nice weather though, they have set up multiple nice outdoor spots to take in the views.
It was great that we could bring our dogs along, and they enjoyed walking with us & running around the large grassy areas around the barn. Very thankful that they were allowed.
We would definitely recommend staying here. Our only caution is that it's kind of remote (which is part of the charm). But in our case, we had planned to spend much of our weekend visiting Dry Creek Valley. It took us 45 minutes to get to and from Healdsburg each day. And at night after dinner and a day of wineries, it just felt a bit far particularly with the rain. You have to drive through the very windy parts of 128 to get to the suite from Healdsburg or Geyserville. It's beautiful country, just slow going, and once we left in the morning we couldn't really just run back to the suite for a nap, to change, or to feed the dogs, we were out for the day.
Thank you for the nice review. We are sorry we were not here to do a wine tasting for you in our tasting room. We spent Thanksgiving with our family. We are building a large deck off the kitchen with more windows in the spring. Maybe you did not see the deck out back of the barn, but maybe it was too cold to go out there. That has nice views and the views at the jacuzzi are amazing too. Plus the hiking trails up through the Italian Cypress are nice. You did not have to go all the way to Healdsburg to get to Dry Creek Valley. Dry Creek is only 20 minutes to the wineries by taking Dutcher Creek road one exit south of Cloverdale. Also it is only 30 minutes to Healdsburg. Our winter rates are less in the winter all the way to May 1st. If you ever decide to visit us again we can schedule a wine tasting with you. Thank you.
Clean, quaint, the most beautiful views I have ever seen!
The inn is very cute and cozy! Exactly what we were looking for!!!! They supply everything you need as far as shower stuff ect. we bought a few groceries with us, it was perfect. The place is clean, plenty of towels for the spa! We loved the spa, The view from the hot tub is breath taking. It was exactly what we wanted for a long weekend get away! There are a few wineries near by, we did tastings at all of them! Le Vin has the best view around. I would recommend this place!!! We loved it!
We are glad that you really enjoyed yourselves and your stay here. Our wine tasting with you was fun. You were great guests. Hope to see you back here again.
