    Lovely place to stay! The staff were very helpful and gave recommendations and maps for various activities in the area. They also took extra time to help me figure out my GPS which was so kind of them, made my entire trip much better! The rooms were clean, as were the bathrooms. The kitchen has a nice vibe, very comfy.
