This is a beautiful place with very friendly staff members. There is a gated entrance and the place felt very secure. Every room is super cute, and the breakfast they provide in the morning is delicious and filling. Would recommend!

Thank you Amy for such a great stay at the Walden House! Location couldn't be better, but also your attention to detail! The breakfast couldn't be better!!! The bed and linen was of superior quality, and I loved that we had a garden room.
