Every time we come here I feel we have stepped back into the days of leisurely auto tours, exploration mixed with relaxation, and a sense of belonging even though we are visitors.
The building was originally constructed in the late 1800's, and has served as a casino and saloon -- among other things -- for the previously booming mine town. Now the rooms have modern conveniences (Indoor plumbing! Hot running water! Wifi!) but are comfortably furnished in a style reminiscent of the 1940's tourist lodges.
The hosts cook with foods from their own garden, and with eggs from their free-range chickens. The breakfast food is savory and plentiful, and there is refrigerator space for guests to have their own items for lunch and dinner, if they do not wish to sally forth for meals in the local restaurants. Catherine was graciously accommodating to my husband's special diet needs.
While we were there we watched a surprise visit from a pair of javelinas that came to eat the fallen mulberries.
If you tire of wandering the grounds, there is a hiking trail to lead you into the hills.
We look forward to returning when the planned hot tub is established.More
