The Kate Wolf Folk Festival 2014

A travel blog entry by buckanddeanne


... is the world.

The spirit that washed over me so abundantly in The Grand Canyon was here cradling the audience when The Indigo Girls took the stage for the final Sunday concert. They sang of the better world we all believe is within our grasp, they sang of the injustice, the immigration laws and of the wrongs waged against indigenous culture in the name of progress: their message of peace and love is presented in such a subtle way, and buried in a humbling ...

Willits, Ca - Gateway to the Redwoods

A travel blog entry by rvcraigers


... we saw the Pacific Ocean!! We walked the historic downtown area and had lunch in a historic cafe. We had heard that they had a unique beach that had a large amount of Sea Glass { small pieces of glass bottles that have been polished by the sand and washed ashore} We collected a handful and watched the waves break on the rocks. What a great day!

Dwarfed by trees!

A travel blog entry by evans2014


... less than cheerful today, so I hope he perks up tomorrow as we move onto Santa Rosa.
Mendicino county where we are is very laid back and arty/crafty but not over commercialised in my humble opinion. The ocean back drop is awesome, so I'm very happy to have made this stop yestrday so we could take time out to stroll around and also for me to go to a very nice Church this morning.

See you all another time hopefully not to soon before more pics

Geysers and petrified forests

A travel blog entry by b_btravel


... some of the largest petrified trees around. It is quite amazing what lava can do to the substances it entombs. From there it was onward to the coast again with an overnight stop in Ukiah. To be honest there's not a lot going on in Ukiah and the headlines of the newspapers report shootings and prostitution issues so I don't think we'll be venturing out to far tonight. Here's to an early night and back to the coast tomorrow. Until then, Bec ...

... couple of ladies next to us and the park has deer and turkeys running around like pets!!

Gas in California is $4.11 for regular! Down from Canada and Alaska, but up from Oregon where there is no state tax.

We had a good ride today seeing Elk, a Red Tailed Hawk, and the turkey and black tailed deer.

Day 156 - Off to Mendocino to see the town where Murder She Wrote was filmed. ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Baechtel Creek Inn & Spa, An Ascend Collection Willits

    Stay away!


    We were very disappointed in the inn. There is no creek that you can see from the inn.

    No customer service


    My girlfriend and I booked our room and massages well ahead of time only to find out they never booked the massages so they had to call all over to get someone, which they couldn't confirm they could get anyone. We didn't need the hassle and they offered no real apology for messing up so we left.

    A clean, average room


    This place is nothing but an average motel configuration with fairly nice trim. Our room was a "premium" upgrade which amounted to new carpeting and down comforters on the two queen-sized beds. The closet area adjacent to the bathroom had been remodeled so that a counter extended through it providing space for an undercounter refrigerator but leaving no place for one to hang one's clothes. To their credit, the room was available on time and was clean and fresh. The pictures on the inn's website are extremely flattering. Enough said.

    Just the place to relax


    My best friend and I were looking for a weekend get away, so we hoped in the car and headed North on the 101, as we came into the town of Willits we were told by many of the locals that the only place to stay in Willits is the Baechtel Creek Inn & Spa. To our delight we found a warm welcome from the moment we entered the Inn. Being in sales and customer service ourselfs, I was delight to see such great customer service from the frount desk to the spa. We enjoyed wonderful spa treatments and our room was a wonderful place for us to relax in after our treatments. Keep them in mind for those weekend get aways. Thanks Baechtel Creek for all your hospitality!!!

    Worse experience ever


    We made reservations over 2 months in advanced and had booked massages at that time as well. The lady on the phone told us that if we changed our minds on the type of treatment we wanted, we would be able to change them when we checked in as well. I decided to select the "Garden Room" because I was told it was "full of plants" and had a jacuzzi tub.

    A Hidden Treasure


    As a Sales Director for a large company, traveling is my life. I have stayed in every type of accommodations imaginable, so what a wonderful surprise it was to find such a lovely Inn tucked away in such a rural area. I was treated to a lovely room with beautiful antiques and an extremely comfortable bed (and believe me I have tried them all). The highlight however came with the charming spa located on the property.

    What a way to relax after driving all day. Everything about this place charmed me, so much so that I have made arrangements to bring my wife back for our next anniversary.

    Bacterial Creek Inn is more like it


    First room: right beside the McDonald's drive-thru speaker and the heater didn't work. Second room: Another broken heater, filthy stained washcloth on the floor, black hairs all over the shower. Management response: fixed the heater, offered us 15% off for giving us a gross unclean broken room. Were told the owner would contact us; didn't. We wrote; we were basically called liars (I have the email) and told oh well, too bad.

    Smelly Room - Cigarette


    SMOKE SMELLING ROOM - We booked a room for our 10th anniversary and chose this hotel because the Skunk Train goes from Willits, CA to Fort Bragg, CA. Well, the Skunk Train no longer runs, so there is no other reason to stay in Willits. We were going to stay any way, but the room smelled awful of cigarette smoke, to the point as a nonsmoker it made me sick to my stomache. We had requested a non smoking room, but obviously didn't received one. We ended up cancelling and staying at a BEAUTIFUL hotel facing the ocean in Fort Bragg, CA.
