Lovely little hotel with fire pits to sip your coffee and enjoy the view, and bring over your wonderful basket of breakfast! Will definitely stay again! Very pleasant hotel and clean as well! Can't wait to come back again!

Hotel was very clean and the staff very friendly. Fire pits out front were a nice touch. Breakfast choices are somewhat limited and baked goods were not very good. Liked having coffee available all day in the office.

I believe there are maybe at the most 10 units on the whole property. Besides the pool area which is not really big the parking lot would be your only other area to gather.
