My wife and I just stopped in to see the quaint shop, restaurant, and possibly stay if all seemed "right" for us. We were on the way to Owensboro and we had plenty of sightseeing & tourist time. We were impressed with the warm & genuinely friendly reception from the staff, dining area with a view of a stocked pond. Bring a loaf of bread and watch the biggest channel catfish put on a show the likes of JAWS, We had the place to ourself except for one other room's occupants whom we never saw. I thought that this place would have the little children all over...it was made for that! But we "big kids" enjoyed a very reasonably priced stay and the pool and hot tub to ourselves. I will go back if just for the chicken soup. (NOT from a can for sure.) We got up early and walked through the town. There were wild deer at several places along our way. (Not reign deer, but you don't need to tell the kiddies that they arn't) I am sure that the holiday atmosphere increases closer to the Christmas season, but we will go back anytime. I just think that we benifited from the "back to school" days that allowed us to get special attention and service that everyone likes to get. The secret is two words..."Off Season."
