Keys Creek Lavender Farm Guest Cottage- A Delightful Local Getaway

Maybe you have been to the very quaint Keys Creek Lavender Farm in Valley Center during Lavender season or participated in an off-season event like a soap making class, brunch or high tea. Did you know that you can also join in the occasional organized retreat (or create your own), and you can also rent the on-site guest cottage or a yurt (they have 6 total) on airbnb? The cottage is elegantly appointed in a French Provential meets farmhouse blend. There are no televisions to distract. When you come here it is about relaxing and recharging. I enjoyed a stay with friends where we chose to hike, wander the grounds, take photos, read and play games. 

The kitchen is utilitarian with only a small dorm fridge, microwave and sink. I recommend bringing food in and/or going to Yellow Deli which is just down the road a mile and a half. Upstairs you will find a spacious master suite decorated with delightful charm. Downstairs there is a pullout queen sofa bed that can sleep two extra guests. There is a tiny bathroom inside and also outdoor toilets available. Showering is strictly in the clean country air, and there is even an antique bathtub on the deck, if you dare. 😉 In the warmer months you can take a dip in the pool but it is not heated in the winter. A hot tub is available for your relaxation and pleasure year-round. There are many decks and seating areas to enjoy the lovely property and views. At night there are all kinds of lights illuminating the property and the many noises of the country including frogs, crickets and farm animals. It’s really quite magical. We really enjoyed our stay.

If you want to get away from it all without having to travel far, this is your place. Book it for your next getaway at: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/14691489?guests=1&adults=1
