This would have been an amazing place to stay, but unfortunately it is run by some very strange people. When I arrived there was no one there to check us in, actually my niece showed me and my husband where our room was. Right then and there I thought that this was very strange. We then found ourselves having a great time, even feeding an elderly man who was left by himself to check in all 23 of my family members. Then at midnight when the innkeeper and his SO CALLED lady friend (somewhat intoxicated) finally arrived, they wanted to know who we all were. That's funny, because they booked us all rooms! They were very rude and made us feel very UNWELCOME! It is really a shame because this would have been a most memorable weekend for all us. Instead, we couldn't wait to leave that place and it did have a beautiful view. But unfortunately the keepers were nuts! Stay away!
