My fourth visit to the Elephant Walk.

5 on April 16, 2014

I'm in love with this place! I go to get a quiet night away from my four kids. I get a massage, then check in at 4. They pamper me with a chilled bottle of sparkling pear juice (you can choose what wine or champagne that you want), pistachios, fruit, homemade cheese and crackers, plus drinks in the fridge. I get in the whirlpool with my book and my wine glass, they have bubble bath, bath salts, candles, huge towels, and a robe for me. There's a fire place in the room and the decor is AMAZING and one of a kind--Rita, the owner, collects it during her travels. You won't believe the awesome stuff there. After my bath, I climb into the comfy bed and read some more. I always leave my phone and computer stuff in the car so i wont be tempted to look at it and can enjoy the quiet. I am usually one to skip breakfast, especially at hotels--do not do that here! The breakfast is always amazing. Make sure you set your alarm for their three course gourmet breakfast, you seriously do not want to miss it! I raved so much about this place that now my friend always comes with me. This place deserves 10 out of 5 stars!

The house is beautiful and has a uniqueness to it. Hosts are great and the service is outstanding. It is a place where you can relax and really get away from the daily routine. I really recommend this place.

Awesome peaceful getaway!

Perfect place for a weekend getaway for a little R&R (rest and relaxation). Friendly staff and the rooms are just as they appear in the photos. I absolutely lovedsitting by the fireplace and reading.

The extraordinary thing about Elephant Walk is the care the innkeepers take to make sure that your stay is so memorable. The breakfast is superb and I could think of nothing that the room lacked.
