My boyfriend booked a night here last year, and while overdue, it occurred to me to that I needed to rave about this place.
It's just off of the main road, but once you get through the main gates you feel wonderfully isolated from the rest of the world. We booked a standard room, which came with a no-fills yet very nice and comfortable queen size bed. There was a coffee maker, small fridge, and a record player with an eclectic mix of stuff to play. The shower was something else altogether- massive, beautiful, amazing. Whoever designed the space clearly appreciated a good shower.
No tv, but why would you come all the way out here to stare at a television anyhow.
At night there were bonfires in the common area. Awesome.
It really was like staying at a friend's incredibly sweet house. No one bothers you, and you can sit back with your loved one hanging out with a beer on your own private porch, listening to records.
Would absolutely recommend this place if any or all of those things sounds like your kind of thing.
