Really lovely little cottage – the current pictures actually don't do it justice. Was a nice, quiet getaway and really close to Henry Cowell State Park. Many thanks to Sarah and team for being so warm and welcoming.

Sarah and everyone at SpringHill Ranch were amazing! The cottage was extremely clean and organized, and the location made you feel like you were a million miles from civilization, but everything you could ever need is within arms reach making it the perfect place for a weekend reset. Sarah was even kind enough to share her state parking pass with us and were able to explore local hiking trails. 10/10 plan on returning to SpringHill Ranch again!

The cabin was very cute! Loved how it was arranged. Everything you could need was provided, soaps, coffee, kitchen supplies, towels, games, tv. I was able to cook really nice meals with just considering the ingredients and not having to worry about any supplies. The host Sarah was very nice and I felt comfortable walking around to meet the goats and go on their neat ridge rope swing! Would recommend!

The cottage at Springhill Ranch was perfect for me and my young son to enjoy a few days in the cool mountains, while close enough to beach and incredible mountain biking, which we did every day. He found the rope swing and feeding the goats to be very fun and memorable. I found the cottage to be spotlessly clean, modern and very well equipped and we particularly loved the outdoor fire pit for roasting marshmallows. The ranch is very quiet and feels remote (up a long winding driveway) but surprisingly close to Boulder Creek, and an easy 25 minute drive back to Santa Cruz. For us a really nice break from the noise and stress of the Bay Area. A nice big comfy bed for me and a nice fold out futon camping pad for him.

We had a great time at Sarah’s! The cottage was cozy and exactly as advertised- off the beaten path, quiet and comfortable, with a fire pit and plenty of land to walk/hike through! The bed was comfortable and the shower’s water pressure was good! Sarah was helpful with local suggestions and the town is a quick 10 minute drive with grocery store and takeout options. Sarah’s thorough directions for arrival were very clear and so there was no stress with arriving. Would absolutely stay again, and recommend to others eager to enjoy a remote getaway.
