This hotel has an amazing location.....in the midst of a forest...If it peace tranquility and fresh air you are looking for, this is the place! Very courteous staff and great view from rooms. We left feeling refreshed and rejuvenated..Only six rooms but the land is more than 100 acres.I definitely select this hotel for my next holiday.
