What can I say that other people haven't? This place was an absolute paradise. When we 1st got off the ferry and into all the traffic by the water we thought oh no and then we got here and was thank goodness. Even though it is only about 5 minutes away from all the hustle and bustle it felt like forever away. We met Juniper the night we checked in. She was very friendly and helpful. She gave us dining and activity suggestions. If she wasn't going to be there, she left a note with a number in case we had to reach her for anything. She went above and beyond. The place was so beautiful. We rented the backpacker fo 2 nights. It had a queen size bed and 2 sets of bunkbeds with plenty of space and beautifully decorated. It had plenty of windows to open and a ceiling fan. The bathroom was very nice but across the hall and was shared with 1 other room. We never had a problem getting to use it even with 4 of us in our room. There is a shared living room with television, movies, music player, cd's which was quite lovely. We sat around in there at night alot. There is also a shared full size kitchen with dining set. Everybody that stayed there was very respectful and even though we had to put our food in the refigerater with others we never had a problem. Juniper had hot chocolate and coffee in the kitchen for everyone to have. It was almost like home. Out back was table and chairs, grill, fire pit with benches, hammocks (which we used a lot) and lots of open land with not another place for as far as the eye could see. It was so relaxing. We could have stayed there for much much longer than 2 nights. We actually wish we had more time to just stay and read or just relax here. We would without a doubt go back. I highly suggest it to everyone.
