I picked this place based off reviews from Trip Advisor, and I was very pleased. We stayed in the Meadowsage room, which was trendy and nicely decorated. The bathroom was spotlessly clean and the room very comfortable. You feel like you're staying in someone's really nice guest room, while still feeling like you're on vacation.
Shari cooked a nice meal and was willing to give us pointers about where to go. We stayed 2 nights and had a nice morning meal, chatting with another couple who was also staying there. I always like meeting others on vacation- you always come away learning something new.
There's a convenient common area where you can get brochures, store your food (like our leftover Little Caesar's pizza) and some tables on a patio where you can eat outside.
It's pretty remote looking when you pull up, but the rooms are very nice. Great place to stay. It is a little out there distance wise, but we go on vacation for peace and quiet, right? Glad I chose to stay there!
