Lovely stay
Even though you can tell there are a few opportunities: water damage around tub, floor tiles need grouting,etc; none of these took away from the fact that this was a little slice away from the busy of North County life. The botanicals for the bath were lovely. The tea and flowers waiting in the room were beautiful. They offer local quality coffee not freeze dried packs. The breakfast options were good and so tasty! And came in reusable containers and the cutest basket.

8/10 Very Good

Overall happy gal
I love the concept.. as a yoga teacher. Neighbors have Super loud kids… and that’s cool .. but disables “ romance.” Open a closet … walled off sloppy style , no connection on floor casings/ door moldings .. just cheapen how a hotel room of this price should be finished. No couples massage space without a door being open to the outside? It was 46 degrees … no! The staff was wonderful, the grounds are beautiful , our bath was super… the tea and chocolates and massage oil heart … so special … but get a good contractor in there and insulate against the neighbor kids … it’s their house next door so you can’t move them :)

Had a delightful getaway weekend with my girlfriend. The service is top notch - very lovely management. We took advantage of the complimentary honey tasting and purchased the candle making workshop, both of which were really fun experiences. The room was amazing - the management clearly spends a lot of time considering all details to make for a positive experience. Will certainly be back!
