As a single lady, was skeptical of staying at any given place. Was very particular to speak to them before arriving, they offered a deal I couldn't refuse. Then when i arrived the place, it was as wonderful & quaint as it seemed on the net. The staff were warm and hospitable during my stay. I would recommend this place...
