Good stay lots of fun.
We enjoyed our stay but the bathroom in the hall way upstairs had no hot water. The shower downstairs was to small. We couldn't even watch tv for the internet kept freezing up.

Fun time!
It was real fun to hang and relax. There was a small issue but the owner was real quick to answer and solve the problem! We would love to go back and chill.
