    Hello ! I have a queen bed on order and will update the amenities once it is here. It does have a full refrigerator now with a separate freezer door.

    Hi There! Your property sounds lovely! Is it handicapped accessible? I walk with a crutch, and for long distances will use a wheelchair. I am concerned by some of the comments that I have read about a trek to get to your car and such. Can you please tell me a little more about the terrain and property? Thank you, Keri Christiansen
