Its like stepping into a storybook. (The Secret Garden comes
to mind.) The rough stone walls of the quaint Cottage tucked among
the greens, purples and reds of living plants embellished by the
sounds of water and the songs of birds creates quite a fantasy
setting. We enjoyed our stay! Yvette & Randy. San Carlos,
CA. October 2003
Thank you for providing such a wonderful place to spend a relaxing
and fun weekend. We loved the Cottage after a fun day of beach
walking, antique stores, farmers market and museum visiting. The
breakfast was delicious and filling. We'll be sure to return again!
Lynda. Boulder Park, CA. January 2004.
Thanks for making our first B&B experience so wonderful and
memorable! I had no idea how much fun this was going to be. You

we had known for a long time. And breakfast was amazing! Ishita
& Chirag. Mountain View, CA. May 2004
My God. I don't know where to start. Thank goodness for the internet
or we never would've found you. What a great place. The Cottage
was a great suggestion & it made our 13 year anniversary very
memorable. Thanks again for everything. George & Gigi, August
The Cottage was divine. We enjoyed every minute here. The food

hosts ever! I couldn't imagine a better first time for a B&B.

each turn in the road. Thank you for making our stay so pleasant
and special. Donna & Charles. Austin, TX. January 2005.
Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation. We can't remember
the last time we were so relaxed. Just being in this room and
laying on this extra comfortable bed while light streams in through
the stained glass windows is therapy in itself! We can't wait
to make it up here again! Beth & Tony. March 2005.
What a perfect place to stay. Your kindness and card for us has
been greatly appreciated. This B&B represents a beautiful
relaxing island of peace in this hectic world. Thanks so much

wonderful job to make it so beautiful. Thank you. Bernadette &
Bill (Rachel Dana's son), October 2005.

Just had to tell you how enjoyable our brief stay was. The Cottage
was so unique & cute. It was so relaxing to be here. I'm sure
our stay won't be the last. Clayton & Jean, June 2006.
The cottage was adorable. We thought we had become a couple of
hobbits! (we're Lord of the Ring" fans). We're glad you suggested
it. What fun! We'll be back. Greg & Jackie, June 2006.
We felt like we were guests in your home and not paying customers.
Thank you for everything! It was perfect. Great way to
start our Honeymoon. Dehn & Catherine, June 2006.
Thank God for the internet. Without it we would never have found
this great place. We were asked if we wanted to stay in the Cottage.

excellent. Converstion was great! If we get down this way again
we will definitely stay at our "Little Stone Cottage".

better place to stay in the future! Liz & Dave, August 2006.

this makes all the difference in the world. Bill & Kim, October
