Clean, cozy cabin, and well organized property. Available amenities as listed and there are trails to explore. Great, timely communication. We had a lovely time and the site manager was pleasant to deal with. I highly recommend.

Edgardo and Susan were excellent guests. They left everything so clean and were easy to communicate with. I am so happy they enjoyed their stay! We look forward to their return.

The only thing that I hated about this site was that the bar is now set SO SO high for everyone else! The host, Carmen, was so incredibly lovely and very accommodating. I wasn't able to check in until later in the night and she still met me to give me the tour. She also gave me some garden fresh cucumbers and other snacks. (Snacks are the way to my heart- thank you!!)

The teeny tiny adorable estate was perfect and the cozy getaway of my dreams. It features three beds (with an additional futon mattress that could accommodate more.) You have to climb a ladder that is mounted to the wall to get to the upper level beds which 100% brought out the child in me. The beds were all very comfortable, I slept like a baby.

So so many amenities and features that I can't name them all, but here are a few highlights:
-outhouse
-generator and extension cord in the back shed
-a shed dedicated to games, camping gear, and other toys (this place would be fantastic for a family looking for a quiet and private getaway)
-coffee maker, cutlery/plates, other kitchen items
-access to a private BBQ and LOTS of other cooking gear
-picnic table + lots of other seating options
-fireplace
-lots of solar powered fairy/accent lights that automatically come on at night
-Lanterns and a headlamp provided
-books, magazines, crosswords on hand

I had a great view of the stars at night, the Big Dipper was hanging out right about the estate when I rolled in that night (as pictured.)

Thank you so so much for the stay, I really hope that I can be back soon!
