Words cannot express the peace and tranquility I felt here. It is an amazing place and the owner Sue is absolutely amazing. She is friendly and went the extra mile to make me feel comfortable. They are amazing people, as amazing as the place is. I want to have my honeymoon here. I can recommend this place to anyone.
