Words don't do it justice. We stayed 3 nights in the downstairs suite. I loved having a view of the forest out the bedroom windows, and watching the Smith River from the deck. The lovely short walk down to the river lends itself to imaginings of a private island. I walked around the beach, climbed up on a big rock and just listened to the quiet. Curt is a whiz in the kitchen and a wonderful host. We chatted so much on our 'check in' that we ended up having a dinner cooked by both Curt and Meg. I read 2 of the books from their well stocked bookshelves and slept the sleep of the truly peaceful. It will be a joy to return!!
