From Sep 1 - Nov 30, 2015 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
We were greeted and given a detailed tour of the home and all its many amenities, including fresh eggs from the chickens outside. There are many small details Elkie and Larry provided all through the house- coffee, tea, hot chocolate downstairs and robes, shower puff, toothbrush and toothpaste in the bathroom along with luxurious toiletries.
We werent able to take advantage of the beautiful setting and lovely tables outside due to our graduation schedule, but hope to return soon to do so!
Elkie and Larry are wonderful hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. They have created a serene hill top getaway with many Inviting places to relax and unwind both inside and outdoors.
Elkie and Larry were wonderful hosts and their guest cottage is perfect in every way. My kids loved the chickens and goats and we all appreciated the privacy and serene location. We only wish that we had more time to relax at the cottage itself but alas our Cal Poly / UCSB sports weekend kept us very busy. It is a perfect distance from town and a great escape.
SilverLining Cottage provided the perfect home base for our family week end at Cal Poly. We were so happy to have stayed there. Very easy access to Hwy 101, yet out in the country with the most beautiful views.
The rooms were perfect for our group to hang out. Having a space and toys for the children was a blessing.
We give this location an A+!
Excellent communications with the hosts, regarding directions & arrival. Easy access from Hwy 101 which made area trips efficient. Absolutely lovely setting, away from the hubbub of city life, tucked away on a hilltop behind trees that filtered the the valley views.
The "Cottage" was an enchanting eclectic comfortable retreat. Hosts provided all the basic necessities, in a lovely framework. Having morning coffee while strolling through the mini-vineyard, overlooking the fog in the valley floor, was a memorable experience.
If you can't tell, our group of six enjoyed our 5 day stay! So wonderful to have a relaxing setting to retreat to (instead of a boxy hotel room), and enjoy our time together, when our convention work was done for the day.
Common areas were comfortable and felt welcoming. Easy to keep neat & generally plenty of room for all our "stuff".
Perfect group setup in my opinion.
Hosts were a pleasure to work with; friendly, informative.
