This cabin was the absolute perfect respite. I'm not one to give five stars haphazardly, but this bed and breakfast really took the cake. The owners were lovely, and served an incredible breakfast each morning in a basket we could take down to one of several little nooks on the property overlooking Lake Hodges. The bed was cozy, the warm chocolate drink was divine, and the view from the shower - glorious. A nice private getaway, yet enjoyable for our 9 month old baby, too.

A perfect hideaway from the world of reality! Amazing landscape making you feel like you are in the garden of eden. Personal touches throughout-flowers at breakfast, home cooked breakfast, tasty coffee available all day long in our room a HUGE plus. Intimate and private-exactly what was needed. I will definitely return. We didn't even leave the property for San Diego - it was more important to relax on one of the many hideaways provided. Can't beat the view!

Romantic Adventure, Lake Hodges, Escondido is now among our very favourite of destinations. Exquisite in every way. Solitude and true romance at their finest. We have stayed for a few glorious days, feeling truly relaxed and invigorated, and are not ready to leave this wondrous place, now that our time is up.... how could we be ready to leave? The cabin is serene and peaceful. The views are magnificent, changing throughout the day as the sun moves across the California sky, over the mountains and thru olive and avocado trees, light dancing across succulents and palms begging to be photographed. The weather has been pristine, warm & sunny days, and cool for sleeping at night. Our hostess, Leith is a lovely person, a wonderful Mexican cook, who shows great loving kindness toward everything that grows and lives here... Each morning she lays out a picnic basket for us to retrieve, filled with delectable breakfast treats: a delicious baked Mexican tortilla dish, a lovely salad garnished with lime and avocado from the gardens, fresh squeezed orange juice from her trees, hot cocoa and a dish of dark chocolate to finish.... The perfectly placed hillside hot tub has been fabulous for enjoying the views and each other...the decks and pathways are delightful and inviting... Staying at 'our' Romantic Adventure cabin has been just what it claims to be and has exceeded our expectations in every way. We can recommend this get-away-from-it-all destination with the utmost of confidence! For true romance and peace, this is the place to go! Thank you Leith and Bruce for such a beautiful respite from everyday life! ~ Kristin and Mark, Ontario, Canada

I stayed here last weekend and I have to say that this was perhaps the most relaxing getaway I had and I'll tell you that not having a tv set was almost a deal breaker for me (since I was traveling alone this time); but I learned that I don't need that type of entertaining when you can stay entertained for hours just looking at the magnificent views surrounding this beautiful property. The room is small but beautifully appointed with fine linens and a radio/cd player, microwave and the cutest espresso machine to indulge the most discrimating coffee lovers. Now to the outdoor space: the bathroom is outside with an amazing rain shower and surrounded by orchids and other beautifully potted plants and with plenty of light so no worries about using the facilities while still dark; actually the showers are magnificent under the stars, you also have your own spa and plenty of seating areas facing Lake Hodges. The breakfasts are so delicious with a great hot chocolate to indulge your senses and give you a great start to the rest of your relaxing day; don't forget that you are about 5 miles to the Wild Animal Park and can to some other great entertainment in the area but honestly just a few hours away from this retreat was enough and then back to the most relaxing time ever. Thank you for an enchanting getaway! ps. Don't forget to bring your reading materials because you will want enjoy reading outdoors.

I can't express how great of a place this truly is. It's right in the middle of a residential area, but when you walk to the cabin and overlook the lake, you feel like you are millions of miles away. It's beautiful! For my husband and I, this could not have been any better. We loved sitting outside in the hot tub watching the sunset, hanging out on this great outdoor couch, and probably one of my most favorite parts was showering outside! I felt as though we were in this fantastic tree house.In the morning you go up to the main house to grab a breakfast basket that is left outside at the time you have designated. It was a delicious meal that tasted like she made everything from scratch with such great ingredients. I felt so spoiled the entire time I was here. We can't wait to go back. Thank you Leith!
