Exotic locale off the beaten path, but close to Lexington. Small room, felt confining. Hard mattress. Porch did not have access to outside. There's a short walk to the top of hill with great views (that's the best thing about the place). Nice pool with gazebo. Breakfast was good (fresh juice, coffee, waffles, sausage, small fruit cup). We enjoyed it for the location but probably will try other places in the future.
