Our favourite rooms
Straight out of a Pottery Barn catalogue, King Luxury rooms are the roomiest. Set on the main or second floor, they overlook the woods and are decked out with a steam shower, heated floors and indoor-outdoor fireplace. Number 13, on the upper floor, is particularly quiet. On the other end of the scale, the tiny Heritage Queen rooms have redwood wet-dry saunas (but be prepared for a squeeze).
The heated outdoor infinity pool is surrounded by Adirondack chairs and gardens fragrant with herbs and vibrant with meadow flowers.
Bring your best campfire tales: Farmhouse offers house-made marshmallows, chunks of Valrhona chocolate and graham crackers for guests to assemble s’mores around the outdoor fire pit.
Room 14 is wheelchair-accessible.
Though the hotel is best suited to adults, children over 10 are welcome in certain rooms for $50 a night, with advance notice and at the hotel's discretion.
The hotel has solar panels to heat the swimming pool, and uses local and organic ingredients, including produce grown onsite.
