Fantastic location, very private, clean and serene. Food not the most amazing but the service is quite good. You can choose to fly and land right at the airstrip next to the homes. Great Golf course!

Lovely lot. Fabulous views that stretch for miles! The furniture needs some attention/cleaning. The craft fair had a diverse set of vendors tending to nearly every need.
