Our stay at Raven's Ridge ranks as one of the best B & B experiences we've had – ever! We stayed in the Casita (which has a small but very functional kitchen, dining area and living room area, bedroom with an extremely comfortable king size bed, and bathroom with a shower); the windows have lovely views of the mountains, and the skylights let in even more of that especially clear and lovely light characteristic of the high desert landscape. The small patio has a table with a shade umbrella nice for reading or eating lunch or dinner outside. The garden – where our communal breakfasts were served – is incredibly lovely. Flowers in profusion, water (a pond with koi), meditatively meandering paths, amazing views and many hummingbirds! There is a canopied area with chaises were one can observe the hummingbirds at close range. The breakfasts were also exceptional – extraordinarily fresh ingredients prepared with attention to detail (without being fussy). The hosts, Phyllis and Judge, were some of the favorite people we met on our trip – wonderful hosts who were very attentive to our needs but also just really warm, interesting, and extremely pleasant people. We felt very well taken care of. Both Judge and Phyllis are very knowledgeable about things to do in the area, and we especially enjoyed viewing Saturn and its rings and the full moon's surface through Judge's telescope and along with his super-informative, informal astronomy lesson (which also included a survey of the visible constellations and a viewing of the station station as it hurtled across the night sky).
