Arriving to Santa Cruz after driving four hours in fog and pouring rain, we found this charming place of wooden cottages, built on top of each other and into the rocks, with a big wooden staircase leading up to the reception. I felt like going up to the start of a roller coaster or being in the middle of a famous adventure game called "Myst". Then waking up this morning, listening to the creek running just outside our room and spotting a piece of blue sky through the trees, makes this place even better.
We were received yesterday by a very friendly staff, shown to a nice room with an open fireplace, cosy and warm, and after settling in, we enjoyed "the wine and cheese hour" in the lounge.
The only minus would be, that our room was a little close to the street and traffic noise.
I would have loved to stay longer, but will definitely recommend this place to friends for a relaxing getaway.
