Having been staying in motels on our tour for 10 days, we fancied something different, and this place scored highly on Trip-advisor. We took pot luck and turned up, fell in love with it and were pleased we could book a cabin for 3 nights. The cabin was faultless and on sitting out on the veranda the first evening, to have a deer wander past us through the pine trees was idyllic. We could easily stroll to various good restaurants within 15-20 minutes. But the best memory is of the friendliness and helpfulness of the two owners and the main assistant. Highly recommended.
