Welcome to Voss Gardens! Or as our guests call it "Foodie Heaven!"
We are casual and rustic chic here in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Perched in the redwoods, our home is an architectural wonder built by our family of engineers and artists back in the eclectic seventies. Over the years an assemblage of art, antiques and curios has charmed its way into the spacious rooms and lofts. We offer 6 acres of quiet ambiance for guests and business travelers. Surrounded by redwoods and wildlife, our year round Organic Gardens provide robust greens for the Culinary Artist at the Montalvo Center for the Arts in Saratoga and other private chefs in the Bay Area.
Although our location is central to all the area has to offer, you may just want to sit on one of our many decks and commune with the muse, ponder the profundities, finish that novel, play the piano, paint the landscape, breathe deeply....
Then for a break, you are
-5 miles from Henry Cowell State Park, 28 miles from Big Basin State Park, both have stunning hiking and biking trails,
-Popular cycling routes just off our driveway
-10 miles from the beach and all the wonderful weirdness that is Santa Cruz,
-20 minutes from Silicon Valley,San Jose International Airport, and a myriad of metropolitan pleasures,
-1 hour south of San Francisco, my favorite city in the world,
-1 hour north of Monterrey/Carmel,
-1 mile stroll from a stunning old growth redwood, "The King of the Forest."(see Picture) Take a walk or bike ride from our house, and pass by a pony farm, historical markers, vineyards and old stagecoach and railroad routes. This little area of Glenwood is loaded with history.
-64 bonded wineries within 20 mile radius
We make every effort to maintain cleanliness. However, our mountain well water has a high mineral content and 40 years of buildup has left our facilities with a rusty looking surface that is extremely difficult to remove. We sanitize regularly and ask our guests to please keep this in mind. Consider it part of the charm of living in the mountains.
Kitchen is generally not available but we can be flexible for simple requests. Just ask.
Peace of mind is always accessible, as are the decks, living and music rooms.
Interaction with guests
Privacy is always respected but we find getting to know our guests is one of the wonderful perks of airbnb.
Its up to you.
Other things to note
Hostess(that would be me:)) is a gourmet cook and meal options can be arranged for an additional fee. Menus are determined seasonally and feature what we grow. We can cater to your personal dietary needs.
