Fodor's Review

Though it's in the middle of Santa Cruz, this B&B has lush gardens, a running stream, and tall trees that make you feel like you're in a secluded wood. All rooms have fireplaces (a few are electric) and featherbeds; most have private patios. Complimentary wine, cheese, and freshly baked cookies are available in the afternoon.

Total Rip Off!

Beware! We never made it to the B&B the cancellation policy was such a rip off we lost $300 because we had to change our date to another weekend due to an emergency and they kept all of our money! If you have to cancel your stay for any reason they charge you the full price. RIP OFF!!!!!!!!!!!
