We cannot say this about many of the other places we have stayed either here in the US... More

Another terrific Christmas Prelude weekend at the Haven. We've been to all of them and always have a special time. The decorations were spectacular, the dinner was delicious, and there was laughter and fun everywhere. John and Sue, once again, gave everyone a memorable time. Priceless!!
