Apple Lane Inn is a historic Victorian farmhouse restored to the charm and tranquility of an earlier age. The house and barn were built in the 1870's with three acres of fields and apple orchards. Just minutes south of Santa Cruz, the quiet country feeling has been crowned with a Victorian gazebo perched amid trim lawns and flowering gardens.
Begin your day in Santa Cruz with an elegant full country breakfast featuring fresh fruit, juice, pastries, special blend coffees and a hearty main course such as Eggs Christy or Morning Monte Cristo beautifully served in the parlor each morning at 9am.
Then explore the many miles of beaches and local redwood parks. Shop for antiques, visit the Santa Cruz mountain wineries or sail on Monterey Bay. Stroll the picturesque villages of Aptos, Soquel and Capitola.
Or just stay at home in the inn. Try the player piano, cards and table games. Step outside for a game of horseshoes. Enjoy the afternoon sun on the brick patio under blooming wisteria, roses, iris and trailing vines. Visit all the farm animals and maybe take a buggy ride.
Complete your day with dinner at a fine local restaurant and retire to your bright comfortable room for a quiet night's rest.
