This charming, secluded historic cottage located in one corner of a micro-working-farm is a perfect place to relax and leave your cares behind. At the same time you can walk to the amenities of a small town. And if you want, Santa Cruz and its beaches are about half an hour away. It’s also a great base to visit San... More

This was our second visit to Boulder Creek - and the Hartman Inn. Tamara and Greg are awesome and the addition of George and Ida May (a couple of miniature donkeys) since our last visit provided a lot of entertainment - especially in the evenings. The cottage is very comfortable for a couple and had everything we needed for a... More

We booked this on Air BnB (our first experience) and Tamara was very quick to respond to our needs and questions. Lovely lady, a former vet assistant, now caring for this property in Boulder Creek, CA which consists of the historic Hartman Inn and 4 other smaller buildings on site.

While the picture on trip advisor wasn't really accurate the place itself was very nice. We stayed in a cottage which was basically one large room with bed and kitchen, separate bath. Very much like an efficiency. The room was immaculate and the owner very friendly. There is a main house and a couple of cottages. There are also an... More

We always appreciate feedback from our guests! Trip Advisor allows a limited amount of pictures. We do our best to offer a broad perspective of images so that guests can get a better feel for the property as a whole. Since we have multiple cottages and are limited on photo space to show every room, we clearly name the cottage... More

We needed to stay somewhere near the summer camp where friends were to wed (we did not care to bunk at the camp!). Few options exist in Boulder Creek, but the Hartman Inn had good TA reviews so we decided to try it. We stayed in the carriage house, which has been converted into a sizable one-room-has-all: queen bed, living... More

Tamara O'Kelley's beautiful small guest house has an exquisite full kitchen and a tiny bath with Victorian tub. Magnolia Cottage is in the middle of her organic garden, and you can hear roosters in the morning, which I thought was great! Other than that, it's dead quiet here--a bit like sleeping in the nearby woods, which certainly was the motivated... More

We had a great time at the Hartman Inn. My partner and i enjoyed our privacy (more "space" than a thin-walled motel room), our freedom to come and go at will (less restrictive than a shared-house B&B), the lack of television and phone, the excellent shower and tub, the huge bed, the pleasing combination of rustic style and immaculate housekeeping....

My grandmother could have easily grown organic vegetables, raised goats and chickens, and had a top drawer quality of life in this peaceful historic home, nestled at the foot of the mountains in adorable, but real and unassuming Boulder Creek.

This may very well be the cutest place I've ever stayed, and Tamara Kelly, the proprietress, could not be any more helpful. She has taken the concept of clean to an art form.
