Loved the location. Convenient to everything. The property was nice with rocking chairs and decks. I don’t know that the owner was there, but we only had 1 1/2 rolls of toilet paper and 2 towels for a week. Bought our own toilet paper and just made do with the towels. It would have been nice to have someone see if we needed anything.

We stayed in Room #2, AKA Snorts Shanty. The room was clean and quiet. We felt safe with our two young children. The room was quaint and rustic. The owner was very polite and a great host. It is very rural , but it was a great location for what we wanted to do .
