The gardens are now going into their FALL period but just as wonderful in their architectural skeletal look.

Sadly, we were not able to stay with M&M as we had planned, but we did experience kind communications with them leading up to when we were supposed to. We heard from them early on after our booking, about a week before, and the day of. In the afternoon we wrote to say we would not make it and did receive a timely response. We were sorry not to see the place based on other reviews and would book with them again should we be passing through the area.

This place was beautiful and peaceful. The room wasn't fancy, but it had everything we needed. And the setting was so relaxing, I sad in the shade overlooking the valley while I ate my morning muffin; I could have sat there all day, it was so tranquil. Melanie was a great host, very friendly, and I appreciated The tour she gave me of the grounds where she showed me what she does to live sustainably. I would love to go back there again for more than just one night. It feels like the kind of place where you can go for a weekend and finally finished that book you've been working on.

It's a very clean private room, the host provides it us food and a drink and fruit. That's very kind of her. Plus, two small single beds that only one person can sleep in the room, and there's no Internet Wi-Fi on that day, and no nearby restaurant and the toilet don't use water after you pee or pu . After all, it's a nice place to stay.

We had a great stay! Was heading across 1-40 and needed a quick stop off the highway. This was perfect - simple and affordable. The hosts are very sweet and great with communication. Even gave us muffins, coffee, and some fruit! They have a composting toilet, which is awesome, but may be something to be aware of. Good to educate yourself on why they are awesome for the environment though!
