    Wondering what rooms are available for Saturday into Sunday for April. Want to spend time with a 20+ friend that I haven't seen in a while who I went to college with without our children😀. Wondering what room would be best, is the porch for everyone or is there a private area, and are there any trails or walk area to take walks there. Also what would be the price. Thank you!
