Very pleased with our 2 bedroom unit, but the staff were the real pleasure here, can't complain about any thing; grounds well kept, units nicely laid out for 2 couples, deck was privately situated, & again, the most pleasant and accommodating staff our well traveled party has encountered.

This place was very welcoming, they even gave us candy for our anniversary. Their recommendations of what to do were excellent, the unit was well appointed and even had a washer/dryer. Our spot was very private and easily accessible. All in all, a wonderful anniversary week.
