Not a Good Value A review of Howard Creek Ranch
We were at Howard Creek Ranch in fall 05. Their web site is very misleading. Shows a beautiful, pristine farm site. What we found was a former (or possibly still) COMMUNE hung over from the early 70s and looking it. Inside, our room was beautifully crafted and clean. Other rooms we saw were downright musty-creepy! Outside, the unfinished repair projects mentioned in this guide in early 05 were still undone months later and the grounds were strewn with tools, piles of this and that, etc. Many building projects were obviously YEARS undone. Food was okay. PRICES ARE WAY TOO HIGH FOR WHAT IT IS.
So, if you want to experience very remote, laid-back, messy, funky, time warp to the early '70's, this is the place. If you want a traditional B&B experience at a clean, beautiful farm by the sea, this isn't it.
