This is a very small town type of guest house, absolutely perfect for a getaway with the wife or girlfriend for the weekend. The lady running it is very accommodating and sweet and I don't have much negative to say about this place. It's set up in a very relaxed, laid back way with flowers and gardens surrounding the house....
