When we got to the gate everything was dark. We thought oh no we have been ripped off so we drove around thinking there must be another entrance. We couldn't find one. When we went back to the gate within a minute or two a gentleman opened the gate for us. We drove in and parked. The man didn't ask us for reservations or anything as they knew we were coming. He took us directly to our room which was very nice. It was 11:30 at night so we went right to bed. When we woke up the next morning and looked out the window, we were in paradise. We had a huge picture window looking out on trees and foliage. The bathroom had a slanted window above the sink with trees etc. It was so nice. It is not a fancy like one person said "cookie cutter" establishment. It is very unique and has an amazing ambiance. I wish we could have stayed but we had breakfast an had to get on the road. We would love to go back.
