Guys Weekend
For anybody looking for an opportunity to reconnect with friends and family… Or just a guys weekend of cards, corn hole and football. This is a perfect destination. The location has great amenities, bars, restaurants and the best part is the view. The property owner was very responsive. And it was as advertised. I rate properties one of two ways. If I would stay there again or not. I would definitely stay here again.
