Loved the rustic charm and authentic feel of this place. Very comfortable room and amenities. Centrally located but quiet. The staff were very friendly and gave good advice and directions. Nice restaurant and even a gift shop for last minute, reasonably priced souvenirs. Would definitely...More

I don't know if it is available for the dates you need, but I had room #6 when I was there. It has two large beds. I believe that it came to $71 US taxes in per night. Great room, very clean.
