This was the perfect place for a quiet ending of our California round trip. After two weeks full of impressions, we arrived at the cabin and found the calmness we had expected and hoped for.
Rick and Jon's place is located in the mountains, but no problem to access. We were able to meet Jon when we hosted him for a few days in our flat in Berlin and he was a wonderful guest and a very nice and sweet person. Now that we arrived at their cabin we found that they had arranged everything perfectly for our stay which we enjoyed very much.
We had a great time there, thank you once again, Rick and Jon!
