This was our first time at the Strawberry Creek Inn. One of our favorite radio stations (KCRW) was doing its drive and offered two nights stay so I grabbed it and used it to spend our 12th anniversary. What a delightful surprise! You can tell they spent time in all the details, the antiques and they definitely thought of everything we might need in our room, like a knife and wine opener, etc... even the bathroom faucet was special. The main house is comfy and decorated with warmth and class. We spent time there looking through photos and listening to someone playing on the piano and looking through the town's restaurant menus and just sitting looking out at the snow.
Linda's care of us was as if we were family, and she cooked delicious gourmet breakfasts and I don't even eat breakast ...I couldn't help myself! Her evening (5:30 on the dot) snacks were exquisite too! She even served shrimp tempura! Linda is the cherry on the cake but what a cherry she is!
The room (autumn) was just right for us and very comfortable and romantic with the daily java log to burn and the delicious choc rasb candle. We are already planning to go back during the spring so we can enjoy the hammocks! Thank you Linda and everyone else that makes the Strawberry Creek Inn the jewel that it is. We loved it!
