Guests often ask what they can on their way to Fairview Manor, so I will be posting suggestions for day trips! If you are coming from the Bay Area, I would suggest beginning your day at the Los Gatos Cafe for breakfast, brunch or lunch. Located almost at the corner of Hwy 9 and Santa Cruz Ave., they are open daily from 6am to 3pm. Once your meal is done, do some window shopping along Santa Cruz Avenue and decide if you are up for Wine Tasting or Garden Touring.
Wine Tasting: Head up Highway 17 and take the Bear Creek exit towards Boulder Creek. As you wind your way up, enjoy the many views. Byington and David Bruce are both on Bear Creek Rd. Once done continue down Bear Creek, making a left on Highway 9, Fairview Manor is 3 miles south.
Garden Touring: Take Hwy 9 (Los Gatos-Saratoga Rd) towards Saratoga, about 1.5 miles out of Saratoga you will see the sign for Hakone Gardens, open daily until 5pm. Continue up Hwy 9, crossing over Skyline Blvd and continue down Hwy 9. You can continue into Big Basin State Park at the junction of Hwy 9 and Hwy 236. Once done exploring the Big Redwoods, continue down Hwy 236 (Big Basin Hwy) to Hwy 9. Right at the stop sign and Fairview Manor is 3 miles south.
This should put you at Fairview Manor in time for cheese, crackers and liquid refreshments!
Don't worry we have restaurants within walking distance!
