My friend from England had a house swap in Redwood City but wanted to see as much of California as she could during her 3 week visit. After heading south down the coast for a while we then ventured up north of San Francisco along the rugged coast and happened to get the name of the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek for a one night stay. What a find! I have never stayed at a place that was so accommodating and just plain fun! We didn't have animals with us, but as my friend dipped into the cookie jar on the reception desk and was about to consume the "doggie treat" she was assured it was home-made and good for humans too! A bottle of wine, a postcard addressed to me with a welcome message on it, were waiting in the room, as well as a speciality coffee with fixings. The room had a deck with a view of the ocean, a log burning stove and wonderful toiletries in the spacious bathroom. Wifi and cell phone connectivity were processed by June, the receptionist. We loved the wine so much I asked to purchase a bottle and was supplied with one for the asking, a parting gift. A voucher for breakfast was included and the food was amazing! Homegrown ingredients that melted on the tongue.
My only concern is that I live so far away in Louisiana and may not have the opportunity to visit this oasis again. It would certainly be on the top of my list!
