I am so glad that I happened upon this property - our stay was perfect. To start, the communications were clear and helpful, and we had no trouble parking and letting ourselves in. Our welcome was warm and inviting, and our room was beautiful and cozy. Our private bathroom had every amenity and plenty of clean towels. Our breakfast was plentiful and delicious in their gorgeous sun-drenched dining room, and our host went out of his way to personally (literally) map out the area, giving us ample options of places to eat and visit. I felt like a local by the time we headed out to see the area. We loved the place so much we didn't want to leave! In the end, sadly, we had to go, but I will be back, hopefully, for a Girls' Trip soon. So happy to have found this place, highly recommend.

Perfect weekend away
Great accomodations, super close to downtown dining... .3 miles to Anejo Mexican Bistro. The bed was so comfortable and the breakfast in the morning was just to our liking and they accommodated every ask. I'd go again
