Mark & Elizabeth-
Thanks so much for a wonderful stay at your hidden gem in the woods. We so enjoyed the charm, beauty and hospitality of the Elim Grove Cottage and the amazing breakfast. We look forward to returning to Elim Grove Cottage soon and would recommend the location for anyone looking to enjoy the Russian River.
Thanks so very much!
We love Elim Grove! After a wonderful first stay in January (when the bakery was closed for the month) we were so hooked we decided to journey to Cazadero again. This time the bakery was open and we were able to enjoy the live Friday music. Mark and Elizabeth are very welcoming hosts who make some seriously mean brownies. My mouth is watering just thinking about them and all of the other delicious baked goods. We can't wait to visit again in the summer!
Mark, Elizabeth and their charming family fully compensate the nasty weather we ended up with on out weekend getaway. So much genuine warmth and hospitality, great food (one of the best cappuccinos I've had lately!), cozy cabin! We will definitely go back as soon as the rain season ends. Thank you Guys!
Excellent place to stay. The cottage was cozy and clean, the wood burning stove kept us warm, the bed was comfortable. Their bread is outstanding and Mark was very friendly and hospitable. I bet it's great in the summer too; there are some very nice outdoor spaces that we didn't get any use of in the rain. Highly recommended.
Mark and Elizabeth were excellent hosts. The cottage was lovely and cozy, and the fresh breakfast that they brought us the next morning was wonderful, too. Highly recommended!
Mark, Elizabeth and their beautiful family made our weekend getaway truly inspiring, relaxing, decadent and....well, perfect! Their hospitality, warmth, kindness and generosity are second to none and we were absolutely dazzled by the beauty of their property and the comfort of their fantastic guest cottage. I cannot adequately express how very special our time at Elim Grove was except to say, we will be back very soon! Thank you to Mark, Elizabeth and their wonderful little ones for making our family vacation so (website hidden) No baked goods will ever quite measure up after the delights that Mark and Elizabeth whipped up - phenomenal!
This place is tucked away amid the redwoods & provided a great weekend escape for us. Mark was very mellow about our arrival time and checkout time and the breakfast provided was awesome - we were eating the breakfast pastries all day. The cabin was a little bit smaller than I was expecting but I think that's a pretty common occurrence with online booking and the library in the cabin made up for it. All in all I recommend it.
Thanks to Mark & Elizabeth and beautiful Cazadero, we truly couldn't have been happier with our stay. So much so that we've already booked our second trip to stay at Elim Grove Cottage.
The cozy cottage was the perfect setting for a couple and dog to leave the stress of city living behind and completely relax in front of the fire, walk by the secluded creek, and relish in Mark's fantastic baking.
The level of hospitality was totally unexpected and wholly appreciated. Mark is just a genuinely great person who loves what he does and it shows. From being greeted with a warm fire and brownies, to Mark taking the time to show us the property and map out our adventure for the next day, he really took care of us.
We couldn't recommend this slice of paradise enough. Thank you Mark & Elizabeth!
We had a great stay at Elim Grove. Mark took great care of us despite our later than expected arrival. He also spent some time to show us the bakery and gave us some very good advice for discovering the area. The cottage was beautiful and cozy and the stove kept the place warm for us. The breakfast was delicious and the staff was also very kind.
What a treasure. The Cottage was warm and cozy. Perfect for the freezing temperatures out at night. Perfect getaway for a couple.
Mark was a true delight to meet. He was more than hospitable and genuine.
The bakery was marvelous. The bread is cooked with passion and love and it really shows.
We will be back again come spring to explore the area further. I am not sure if there is anything else out there in the surrounding area quite like Elim Grove.
