This is the perfect place for a romantic getaway close to everything and a great at home feeling, this was definitely the most impressive and unique home I ever stayed, is also very close or walking distance to a lot popular bars and restaurants in the Ingersoll area and only minutes from downtown, definitely will recommend as first choice for a couples getaway.
