The alligators were hibernating, but the deer came out to greet me upon my arrival at this serene retreat in the southern woods. Though the rooms are spare, bare bones motel style, they're clean and the management is pleasant. Having come down south on business, I could not, alas, take advantage of the setting. I walked up to the edge of the lake, looked around for gators, and then walked back. But bikes are available and time and walking shoes is all you need to wander the woods.
