Gorgeous setting through a (very) winding country road. Switchback is an accurate name, I’ve rarely seen so many 10mph road signs ! If you don’t need a lot of amenities this is a great “ away from it all” spot. Not far off the road but also very little traffic. Despite my last minute booking and a late night arrival, John was a courteous and most helpful host.
