Fodor's Review

Escape to nature and retro-charm at these refurbished, gadget-free 1930s cottages. Your daily activities here will include snipping flowers for a bouquet, harvesting a bounty of vegetables for dinner from the organic garden and greenhouse, finding a basket of freshly laid eggs at your door every morning, roaming open meadows with resident goats and chickens, and soaking in views of the blustery coastline. You won't find a TV, phone, radio, or even a clock in the rooms, but you will find hardwood floors, fireplaces, embroidered curtains, a white-enamel stove in the full, if diminutive, kitchen, and straw sun hats hanging from hooks. For exercise, stroll the beautiful grounds or take a path to Fish Rock Beach. Smoking is not allowed anywhere on the property, and there's a two-night minimum stay.
