First of all Carole is a delight! It is clear from her meticulous gardens that she takes pride in her home and what she does. She has a wealth of knowledge of the area. As for the details: she offered three different areas for us to put up our tent, some closer to the house than others. We chose a flat wood chip area with a view of the river. All amenities that were listed were certainly available. Her dog is indeed huge, but Carole manages him well and he quickly got used to us. Our dip in the river was brisk and enjoyable, we were glad we packed bio degradable soap and water shoes. Carole had great tips for hiking in the area (Stony Creek and Stout Grove were our favorite short hikes) and making a run to the local forest service visitor area was her tip to get maps and other hiking details. We can't wait to get back.
