The Plantation is a 21 acre private estate surrounded by pristine Eucalyptus State Forest. The award winning design includes eight accommodation guest suites, all appointed with luxurious bed and bath linen, L’Occitane guest toiletries and waffle bath robes. Guest rooms open onto stunning wrap-around tiled verandas with sweeping views of the surrounding estate.
As a vacation or executive retreat, wedding venue or off-site dinner option, The Plantation gives the sensation of an exotic far away destination without the hassle of traffic or the expense of extensive travel. Luxuriously appointed yet casual and welcoming, The Plantation is large enough for conferences and weddings of up to 150 guests yet private enough for intimate and romantic weekends away. It is the ideal location for those who wish to leave the city behind and simply get away from it all.
…and then back to The Plantation and a good, soft bed. The guestrooms are all in a Ralph Lauren-goes-to-Connecticut style with a dab of French Provincial and the odd witty touch such as a mock-antler chandelier. Expect pineapple-motif flourishes, swagged curtains, tall padded bed heads, honey-toned parquetry floors, rather formal Louis XV chairs and generous extras such as L’Occitane toiletries, piles of magazines, bottled water, gowns and, in the kitchen, a wide selection of Twining’s teas and a tempting cookie jar.
