We rented 2 spaces for 3 nights as a base for sightseeing. All beds were very comfortable, the continental breakfast was fresh, the coffee excellent and the view from the comfortable porch amazing. We ate dinner here one night and it was also very good.

We appreciate that you stayed with us and are glad you had an enjoyable visit. Next time you come back feel free to ask if one of our four rooms with private baths are available (these fill quickly so advance reservations are suggested). And the remaining seven rooms share three full baths located upstairs near those rooms.
