I also can’t understand how this resort could be rated anything less than excellent or very good.
My husband and I booked Stevenswood directly through one of the owners, Michael. I missed the Bloomspot.com deal that was an unbelievable array of offerings with 4 nights accommodation and I was sorely disappointed. He happily honored my request directly over the phone, and we booked that day in late January 2012.
I’m normally TERRIBLE with names but can tell you the name of everyone we interacted with, including their amazing cat Mark Anthony and super sweet lab, Zach. Chris served us at both dinners with EXCELLENT pours of wine and port, and at the wine and olive oil tasting. His winery recommendations were second to none! Make sure you have dinner here at least one night, you will be glad you did. Josh served breakfast and he provided great service.
Nelson is very cheerful, and per our driver with Mendocino Wine Tours he is a staple in Mendocino area and a wonderful guy to know. We agree.
We each received a 1-hour spa service as part of the online offering and Brook was our masseuse. WOW. My husband and I prefer totally different massages and she was great for both of us. I thought the Lomi Lomi was super fun.
Michael and Seth (the owners) were wonderful, we met them both several times and when we had questions about our bill Michael was very approachable and NOTHING was charged that should not have been.
The room was very spacious, and the bed was very comfortable. Don’t neglect the large deck outside for a little sunshine and a view of the ocean… the neighboring Inn has Llama’s you can watch from there too!
