Each time we escape the rat race to share your piece of heaven we always wonder what has taken us so long!  It's almost as if the air is supercharged up here - mere breathing gets me to the place I need to be.  Your emerging garden is lovely, breakfast company always engaging, your table always inviting.  Thank you for providing this lovely Oasis for those of us weary travelers seeking a small respite.  We'll visit again!  Terri and Gary, Livermore, CA
 
"If you are looking for a relaxing, calm and serene weekend enjoying God's most beautiful gifts to us, visit Backyard Garden Oasis.  This place is filled with redwoods, a waterfall, Koi pond, herb and vegetable garden, butterflies, hummingbirds, flowers, and variety of wildlife.  The main house has a spa which lookup to the Milky Way at night.  I don't think I have ever seen so many stars in my life. It's is surrounded by mountains and stream.  The best part is the innkeeper, Greta, who is so generous in open her home and heart to all visitors.  You also get a hearty, organic, homemade breakfast at the main house with New Age (calming and inspirational) music playing in the background to start off your day right.  Also, the cottages are very private and super clean.  Enjoy a fresh, hot cup of French Roasted coffee in front of the waterfall or go for a quiet morning walk and observe some amazing wildlife while you enjoy the first sunrays on your face.  Whatever you decide, you are bound for one of the most relaxing weekend of your life at Backyard Garden Oasis"...Sonal Basu, Walnut Creek, CA
 
"...we were able to fit in so much ... horseback riding on a10 mile beach, jet skiing on Clear Lake, and an afternoon in Napa....thank you for providing such a peaceful, relaxing place" .... Kate and Joe, Boston, Ma

"You would not believe how challenging it has been for me to find a place that:  a.  my wife would like and, b. would accommodate our super-healthy diet (vegetarian).  Your B&B gets a high-five for a good raw vegetarian breakfast...and a quiet, pleasant getaway with everything we need.  Great going! ...Aaron Parnell

Our visit with you exceeded our expectations and inspired us to desire more good in our lives ..." Gilbert and Hani,

"...we are refreshed!"  Anna and Ryan

"We came up this way for a dear friend's memorial - February was a difficult month...this was truly a wonderful retreat!  The cottage is so peaceful and delightful.  Thanks for referring us to Boar's Breath for dinner - wonderful!  Then breakfast was delicious and a great chat....Best massage I ever had!"..Larry and Roe, Pinole, CA

"Thanks again for making our weekend so wonderful and relaxing. We had such a wonderful time! ...We hope to be able to come visit again for our 7th wedding anniversary. ....Kimberly and Ron Echeverri

"The breakfast menu on that morning was French toast  (it melted in my mouth, it was so good) and fresh strawberry compote……...  Greta was smiling gently and listening to her story.  By the time we finished breakfast, we all felt as if we were long time friends.

"…. The only sound I could hear was that of a bird chirping.  From the hot tub on the deck at the main house, you can see a beautiful starlit sky at night.

"I liked the natural and simple interior inside the cottage….There was no extra stuff in the room, only quiet, privacy, beautiful scenery and warm hospitality  - Atsuko Otsuka

"The world is so different now and havens like yours are so needed.  We are so grateful that you are you and we can come here to heal, to rest, to fall in love again to just be." ... Kathy and Larry
