I went with a friend. The grounds are beautiful, people walking around were there for a retreat. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. They have great events, unfortunately I was not there long enough to attend, but my friend has attended and loved it.

Great understanding of Buddhism- with-out being pushy. Be pre-pared for no air-conditioning- but not too bad- as lots of trees !
