The location is very nice, and it was scenic. The man (I think he was the owner) that showed us our room was not very friendly. That is OK, we could deal with that. However, when we arrived in our room we were overwhelmed with the odor of what I suspect was an extreme overuse of a cleaning product, perhaps Febreeze. We opened the windows on both sides of the room and tried to air out the room for two hours while we visited a near by town. When we returned, the room was still unihabitable. The cleaning product odor was so strong it was irritating our lungs.Because it was affecting our health. We contacted the owner and all he could offer was for us to sleep on the couches in common living room of the place. Not a good thing, and then we would have to pay full price for at their room rate. We ended up having to stay in another hotel in a nearby town. Since we were not able to stay there, we challenged the charge on our credit card bill since they did not render the services they advertised, which were a place where we could sleep. They refused to credit our charge card.
