Whether relaxing in one of the traditional guest rooms or one of the fireplace suites, each of the 54 rooms of this Santa Cruz Mountain hotel features soft maple furnishings and delicate, inviting hues of rose, ivory and blue. To compliment the French countryside ambiance, the traditional guest rooms boast plush linens atop rich, comfortable beds, warm lighting, cathedral ceilings and wood shutters on windows that look out to garden views. The exclusive fireplace suites enhance the air of elegance and romance with canopy beds, Jet Set tubs and French doors, which separate the bedroom from the spacious living area.

Peachwoods Steakhouse, located at the Inn’s main entrance, offers traditional favorites for brunch, lunch and dinner.
