This is THE place to go, but only if you appreciate quality hosts, friendly atmosphere, beautiful scenery & a place to leave the fast pace of city life far behind. Wonderful hosts who gear their day to yours, allowing you to go at the speed you're comfortable with. Yes, motorcycles are the theme in more ways than you can appreciate, but the truly special hosts are gems by themselves, intelligent conversation or relaxed chatting on the porch while you inhale the fresh air found only in the cleanest of countryside. It's a little off the beaten path, & I'm sure the pool will be great if they ever put one in. No fitness center required, hiking is available whenever you wish. We will be back. This absolutely tops my personal list!
