          My spouse and I have 3 children. It appears 5 people can't be accommodated in one room. Is that correct?

          Response from David O | Reviewed this property |
          That appears to be their policy though I would call to ask. May depend on ages of children. The larger rooms have both a king size bed and queen size bed or pull out sofa.

          Parking fine if trailer is small, but not much room to turn around.
