We had a wonderful two nights at the Sand Rock Farm in the Hidden Garden Room. It's a quiet and beautiful setting amidst massive gardens and wildlife. The house itself is interesting, breakfasts were marvelous, proprietress was charming. Our room was very large and comfortable, and it had a big spa just outside the door, which we enjoyed both nights. Common areas are delightful both inside and outside. We went to the Forest of Nisene Marks redwood state park for a long hike, then spent the afternoon at the Rio Del Mar beach on the ocean. Weather at the Sand Rock Farm is sunnier and more pleasant than closer to the beaches, because it's about 1.5 miles inland, so much less low overcast.
