We loved our stay at the B&B @ The Redwoods. Vivien is such a lovely host. Upon arrival, she greeted us and gave us a tour of her inlaw suite downstairs. We had the whole downstairs to ourselves, and it was more than enough room for the two of us. Our bedroom was very cozy, nicely decorated, ensuite included, and... More
