The hotel is nestled on six acres of gardens dotted with apple, pear, and lemon trees. Eight cottages stand swathed in roses and morning glories, each with its own private spa: redwood sauna, whirlpool tub for two, lots of bath teas and gels, and oversized towels to cocoon in. Each cottage also has a wood-burning fireplace and four-poster feather bed with a hand-sewn duvet and Egyptian cotton sheets. Once you've settled in, call the concierge to arrange an in-room deep-tissue, reflexology, or aromatherapy massage. There are bike rides, a swimming pool, a lavishly praised restaurant where almost all of the food comes from local farmers and the owners’ nearby ranch.
