Secret Garden did not disappoint. We were welcomed by fresh flowers, a very nice touch. The house was fantastic both inside and out. The hot tub was a nice way to relax after a busy day of touring. There was only one problem and that was with the BBQ. Only one of the burners lit up making cooking very difficult. I'm sure it is a simple fix and will be addressed for the next vacationer.

Peaceful Restbit

  • 4 of 5

Truly a lovely spot to rest your mind, body, and spirit. Rejuvinate under the canopy of trees with the soft sound of the babbling water or find a spot to sit in the many options both outside and within the home. I would've loved sitting in the sweet spot overlooking the home and creek, but the chairs looked like they'd fall apart; perhaps a new set are in order.

Bed & linens were a treat as were the mostly alive flowers that greeted us.

I really felt rushed to make the 11am departure though and suggest on being a bit more flexible with either an earlier check-in or later check-out. The kitchen was fun to cook in but the pots, pans and knives could all use updating. Overall the space and home were an excellent choice and I hope to return when the low season begins.

We were so pleased with our stay here at Secret Garden. We have to say this place is the most magical nature spot in Northern Cal. The amenities were as explained in the summary. In deed this property is a great place to relax. The bedding in both bedrooms were soft and comfy. The kitchen has everything you need even spices and condiments. The cabin has a modern & past artsy touch with beautiful colored rugs and furniture. We can say one word of the back of the cabin "magical" It is surrounded with nature red trees and ferns. The bridge adds a romantic touch over the nature spring running down by the side of the cabin. We slept wonderful with the sound of the nature springs. The Loft is a neat place to hang out, perfect to watch a movie.The patio has a beautiful deck with hot tub and great BBQ for cooking.This is what the doctor ordered to enjoy a spot with all you need surrounded by nature stress free. Great sound set up and collection of music. We enjoyed David Bowie's collection. Thank you!! for the fresh flowers on the tables they added a smile to our stay. We loved everything in the cabin.
