This is a beautiful B&B in the Santa Cruz mountains -- we would definitely stay again. The owners, Sitah and Dale, are very friendly and helpful, and the staff of 2 equally so. We stayed for 5 days and the breakfast was different every day (always a fruit course -- fresh and delicious -- followed by a main course of eggs or pancakes). Great coffee and fresh orange juice topped it off. We stayed in a small room with a loft (where our daughter slept) and had private use of a nice jacuzzi. There is also a larger room upstairs with a long porch and great view. Plus two separate cottages which fellow travelers gave good marks. The place is very dog friendly which is good if you want to bring yours but not so good if you have pet allergies. There is also a meditation grove among the redwoods and a small trampoline that kids will enjoy. The only negative of our stay was that our room was a little bit musty, so you might want to think about that if you have allergies (or consider the upstairs room which seemed to get more ventilation). The B&B is a great location for visiting Santa Cruz itself, the many beaches along the coast, and the Big Basin Redwood Forest. We easily had enough to keep ourselves fully occupied for 5 days in July. All in all, a great place that we would recommend for families or vacationing couples in search of a beautiful quiet spot in the gorgeous Santa Cruz mountains.
