We spent two nights here in March, 2011, and loved our little cottage (number 9) under the trees. The large front room had a double bed and fireplace (with insta-light logs) at one end, a comfy couch and armchairs at the other. There was a well-equipped kitchen and dining room adjoining, plus a many-toweled-and-shelved cedar-lined bathroom with big-enough-for-two Jacuzzi tub and shower.
Lots of windows, loads of electric lights made it possible to read in bed or in the bath and to put make-up on without guessing where to put it (a luxury many motels fail to offer). If grandiose doormen and obsequious porters are your style, this ain’t for you; this isn’t the Pan-Pacific, folks; it’s a rustic country cabin, but it’s one that’s been well laid-out and thoughtfully appointed.
We were only there 2 nights, but people staying longer will find lots of drawers and storage places, and there’s even a little deck with table and chairs. We had our breakfast out there in the sunshine, even this early in the year!
We never did meet our landlady (you call her when you check in or want anything) from a phone in a little “welcome office,” but she was always there, always helpful. Even gave us the phone number of someone we were meant to look up, but whose number we’d lost! You wouldn’t get THAT at the Pan-Pacific. And your bill wouldn’t be NEARLY this low either.
