Descend the stairs to find a peaceful room filled with the Japanese aesthetic. The Woods Room is on the lower level and opens to a spacious private deck. A tokonoma, where "heaven, nature, art, and man meet," greets you with a freshly-made ikebana. Slide open the shoji screens to reveal your private deck. The Woods Room faces the sunny, native coastal forest. Enjoy leafy shadows on the shoji as the sunrise filters through the trees.
Relax on a comfortable queen-size platform bed. The bathroom has a double sink, and a shower/tub combination stocked with organic body care products by Marin-based EO Products.
In keeping with the tranquil space, there is no cellphone reception nor television. A guest telephone is provided in the commons area so that you can stay in touch. Free wireless Internet connection is also provided. A small refrigerator is just outside your room.
Please be advised that if you have difficulty navigating steps, you should consider the Pacific or the Bay room.
The inn has the rustic elegance of a Japanese farmhouse, with the modern conveniences of central heating, good reading lamps, and Internet access. Original artwork and ikebana by Nancy Beck grace the inn.
Write, read or just relax while looking out at the mysterious Bishop pine forest. California wines and local cheeses in the afternoon and freshly-prepared organic breakfast each morning are included.
