The Babbling Brook Inn is infused with an ambiance of peaceful serenity. Its grounds are lush with of foliage, giving it a distinct sense of seclusion. We stayed in a room called the Contessa, which featured two large feather beds, and a cozy gas fireplace that was flanked on either side by shelves that held am impressive array of books. Sam, our gracious concierge, greeted us with delicious homemade cookies at check in, and we found Sweet Dreams chocolates resting on soft throws on our beds. Each evening, we were invited to enjoy to self-serve wine and ample assorted hors d'oeuvres in the parlor, where the hearth seemed always to be aglow. The breakfasts were delectable and filling. One morning, Sam served us generous portions of quiche, the next morning we woke up to perfect waffles, and both were beautifully presented. Self serve fruit, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, orange juice, cereals, and etc., rounded out our morning meals. We spent much of our time there playing games in the living room, conversing with other guests, reading and relaxing, with occasional excursions into downtown Santa Cruz. All in all, we could not have picked a better inn for our family getaway.
