    The manager charged me twice. First charge was from the credit card I used for reservation and the second charge was from the card I used when I checked out.

    Neat spot!

    We liked this place. The rooms were clean and there was a big living area/kitchen to use as a common room. It's in a neat area with a lot of eco-friendly stuff around, a cafe, places to walk, etc. Would definitely recommend.

    Rent a room to support a good cause.

    The guest rooms are part of the income producer for a special needs training and assistance program within the complex. Check in is in the coffee house in the middle of the community, which was a little confusing. That is also where breakfast is served. It is a little walk, or very short drive, from the two guesthouse buildings. The rooms were nice with no complaints, once I understood the layout. It is a nice guesthouse with administration handled in a different area within the community. It is a non-profit assistance group for a good cause. It helps knowing that your room charge is going to a good cause as opposed to someone's new car payment.
