Suzanne is a fantastic host. Very thorough due to the location not being very easy to find. My kids loved it and they are already asking to go back. Thank you Suzanne for sharing your home with us. It's very cute, cozy and clean.
I was traveling with my son and, over the course of the 4 days on the road, I sought places that would each provide a unique experience.
Our first night was at this property up Highway 17 from Santa Cruz (Scott's Valley). The biggest regret is that we were unable to get there until 10pm (as we'd previously arranged with Art, the owner) because I would have loved to spend more time there, and (frankly) talking to Art.
Photos don't do the living/sleeping area justice. You will never find accommodations with the ambience (and, more than that, the quality of furniture) that this offers.
When you hear the story of how this space came together (I'll let Art describe it), you begin to realize that this isn't just an extra room in somebody's house.
We left the next morning, early, so didn't get to soak it in much then, either, but I hope to return on another trip through the area.
One last note: If you're not familiar with the area, and you're arriving after dark, drive carefully (even on Highway 17, which I think is one of the wildest multi-lane highways anywhere) but don't get discouraged. The drive itself is beautiful (especially in daylight) and worth it.
