Stayed with Barb and Frank for a couple nights on our recent rafting trip and they really made us feel at home. Otto the dog was a real treat, my wife really liked playing with him. Sleeping with the sounds of the river going by was very relaxing and soothing the sore muscles in the hot tub after a day of rafting was a great way to unwind. Breakfast was delicious as well. Would recommend staying here if you are in the area.
