Loved staying here but I might mention there is nothing open in the area on Sunday. But quite & peaceful. I really don't know what else to say except I recommend this place to anyone traveling in the area.

Was a nice place to stay but I didn't like all the movie advertisements all over. (Especially the tattooed guys with the amish; they were totally weird.) I would've put a way higher rating if these weren't all over.
