Booked for myself and 2 small children for 2 nights to visit family.

A group of four ladies stayed at Hazel's apartment on North St and it was the best location and accommodations we could have asked for. The apt was spotless, and the kitchen welled stocked even though we weren't expecting that. We could not have been more pleased. Hope to stay here again in the future.
