Classic yellow with white trim buildings with trees throughout the property, and a white picket fence surrounding the pool enhance the charm. Chairs are provided in front of every room and I'm sitting outside in the morning enjoying the pleasant weather and sounds of civilization. The owners are friendly and the price excellent. The room was clean, no spiders, mildew,... More

Last Summer, I book a room for one day but have cancelled this booking. After a year later, I found a charge of $84.53 for a cancelled reservation on my credit card statement. I contact the owner about this mistake he said he would give me credit and some bull story saying I was accidentally charge due to switching of... More

I happened upon this place last minute, while driving down the road when all other hotels and motels were closed - 11pm. I was offered a cottage (#16) and asked to see the room. The owner was happy to give me the key to check it out alone. I was not thrilled with the place but when I asked if... More

My husband and I reluctantly left our niece and her two small children there last week for the night, as we were heading north and they were heading south. Outside smelled like some type of chemical! The room was awful , and the desk clerk ( the owner, I assume) wouldn't give me the full price for what she had... More

After we paid we were told the pool was closed, they are vacuuming it. Umm... It was green. Entered the room and the closed up mildew smell was overwhelming. Furniture old and worn out, bed was saggy and beyond uncomfortable. There were two smoke detectors on a shelf without batteries and no operating smoke detector at all. Bathroom fixtures were... More

We booked a cabin through booking.com and when we walked through the door we knew were ripped off. The "cottage" we rented (unit 14) was nothing like the photos online. The room was extremely small, maybe 10x10 and very dirty. There was a full size bed with a small table, small fridge and microwave. A door leading out to the... More

We stayed there in October for one night and paid with debit card. 7 months later they charged our card again! And then would not refund us and were beyond rude. He claimed to have lost and then randomly found a slip while "spring cleaning". But never called to ask if we had been charged our even let us know... More

For a leaf-peeping weekend, this was apparently a good bargain. It turns out that it was not. Room not ready at check-in time; room was dirty and needed vacuuming, tub and shower curtain were moldy, room was never made up while I was there, at one point I even hung the "clean room" tag on the door and all that...
