Really cheap mattresses provide for an uncomfortable night's sleep. It is a rustic cottage, so there is no air conditioning. This isn't a problem, since it is cool at night even in the summer. Bathroom facilities are modern and convenient.

Thank you for the feedback. We will be purchasing new mattresses for next year which will make the sleep more comfortable. Hopefully we will see you again someday. Jeff Bell General Manager
