We stayed in the "new" Casita on a very last minute extra night away. Maggie indulged us in dinner. She also outdid herself with our breakfast. The Casita is just amazing. A tiny fully equiped place built against a rock retaining wall. How they got so much into such a small space and make it all work and still feel roomy is beyond me. The bed was soooo comfy, and linens wonderful. The walk in shower with massaging foot stone bottom, non-slip I might add, Bliss. The kitchen has almost more than mine does at home. It even has a gas firestove. All of the little touches are amazing, stained glass over the bathroom door; special light fixtures abound; ample towels and robes. We ate out on the patio for dinner where we got to see the resident Javelina family, quite cute.. Dinner was the most wonderful grilled Halibut we've had in awhile. Breakfast for me, blueberry pancakes to die for. Mom had a skillet casserole dish that was wonderful. Only a few tiny nit picking drawbacks that I can find... Don't get there in the dark, the driveway could be a little intimidating. Nothing big deal, but in the dark could be unnerving. We are avid past campers so used to bugs, but we will come back in the "non" buggy time of year. Not the innkeepers fault obviously but there is so much outdoor space to enjoy and walk down to the river that we were a bit blue to have to stay mostly inside. That's ok, an excuse for another trip! The inside of the house is great and has soooo many things to look at out of curiousity that you could be there for days. However if anyone in your party has a problem with taxidermy, you might not be comfortable. I'm ok with it, but it made my Mother a bit uneasy. Nothing negative, just a heads up for some people. Maggie and Steve were both uber helpful about maps and the area. Last but not least... Maggie's dog Henri, who is quite obviously the King, was wonderful, He stole our hearts. Hope to be back soon.

I am so spoiled after staying in this quaint, private paradise. The food was delicious. The hostess was lovely and attentive when necessary but left us to our privacy when we were all situated. It was simple, yet elegant and luxurious. I didn't want to leave!

This was the best B&B experience we have ever had. The service and dining were beyond our wildest expectations. We will definitely stay again. Keith & Jo

If you are looking for a wonderfully private, natural setting with a warm, friendly and helpful hostess who creates fantastic gourmet meals ...then this is the place! Maggie's home became our home. We played for hours with the Polaris in the hills of the canyons and the riverbed. We hiked on and off property trails, wishing we had our fishing poles. Local wildlife wandered onto rocks by the house while we relaxed on the deck. Hummingbirds darted about protecting their territories and the sound of coyotes calling were heard each evening. Wonderfully serene. Amazingly relaxing. We are already working on dates for our next visit.
