My kids and I stayed for a few rainy days this spring. We've stayed in the past, and although we usually like to stay right in town, it was really wonderful to walk up the hill in the rain and sit in the hot tub, seeing the ocean. I want to thank the person who booked our cabin--he was so...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 November 2016

We had a wonderful time at the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek! We were welcome with open arms, as were our two well-behaved dogs. We travel a lot with our dogs and appreciated how truly dog friendly (not just dog tolerant) the inn is. The property itself is lovely, and we appreciated the little touches in the room: coffee, wine glasses,...

We stayed in the Rose Cottage which was an amazingly cozy retreat. The view was incredible, the staff was SO friendly and helpful. Don't miss breakfast at the Circa '62. Chilaqules are not to be missed. Our Bernese Mountain Dog loved the stay as well. the doggie care package was a lovely touch. We will be back...soon!

I was a little hesitant to book this rental because there were so few reviews to be found online, and it's such a beautiful property I thought surely there was a hidden problem. But it was truly a perfect retreat for our family. The friendly handwritten note to greet us, coffee service for our first morning, and adorable child-sized robes...

The Inn at Schoolhouse Creek was a perfect getaway for my husband and I. The staff were so hospitable and excited for our stay. They showed us where to take nearby nature walks which were easy to get to and showed an amazing view of the ocean. The cottage we stayed in was so beautiful; very open and inviting with...

The people there were very helpful, very friendly. They gave us good advice for exploring the area. We definitely plan to go back. They also have an amazing breakfast/brunch place. I really cannot recommend it enough.

Inn at Schoolhouse Creek has a beautiful location with postcard picture views. Thyme Cottage, however; desperately needs updating and maintenance (water from shower drains onto bathroom floor, water damage near shower wall and laminate floor in poor condition), needs deep cleaning (spider webs, dusty furniture and floor boards), and pests (ants, spiders, and creepy crawlers) in part, probably because of...

The Inn at Schoolhouse Creek is our new favorite place to stay! We stayed in the Anderson Valley room. The room was very clean, the bed was super comfortable, and we feel like the inn genuinely cares about their guests and really want them to enjoy their stay. Before we even arrived, I received an email with a list of...

Despite our short overnight visit, we thoroughly appreciated the very spacious Captain's Watch room and all its amenities. The rooms are located in a separate building above the cabins and are very secluded and quiet. Rustic outside and very modern inside. The Captain's Watch had a king 4-poster bed, very comfortable, and an enormous corner tub with a separate shower!...

This is a quaint and romantic get-away. It is obviously not a five star business accommodation; don't expect uniformity. The cottages are somewhat rustic and wonderfully quirky in their own way. The staff is super-accommodating and helpful and the Circa 62 restaurant is a superb breakfast restaurant that is a destination eatery on its own. Our first night, we had...
