Perfect getaway from the city
Myself, my partner and a couple of our friends stayed at the Dorothy for my partner's birthday weekend and we had the most relaxing, comfortable time! The property was absolutely spotless (my friend who is a house cleaner by profession was very impressed), and my first impression driving up was that the property in its entirety is much bigger than it appears in the pictures, in the best way. The ravine and the surrounding grassy areas were beautiful. Our first morning the canopy had come down and Rich came by to fix it before I had even noticed it had moved. The fire pit was amazing, there was plenty of supplies and space for grilling. Everyone had enough space inside and communication with Shelly and Rich was very easy and comfortable. They gave us a ton of recommendations for restaurants in the area as well. It was obvious they were willing to be as involved or removed from your stay as you preferred! Definitely will be returning when we need some time away.

A Family Gathering
My small family got together to celebrate my moms birthday, the hosts left a birthday card, up a sign and left a coffee cake! They also tried to accommodate our special needs in other ways. Lovely gathering spot!
