We had a room with a private bath. The room was very small and there wasn't enough space for our two suitcases. The bath was across the hall.
Judy was accommodating and knowledgable about the area but a bit over bearing. We never really felt comfortable in " her" house while she was around. One of the things that we were looking forward to was meeting other travelers in the communal area. Judy tended to dominate the any conversation. The best time we had was the morning we left. Judy had to go to work and we visited with the other guests that morning. We all had a great time.
In summary, this felt more like an adult hostel with Judy as the house mother. We could have done a lot better if we just drove into town and found a place to stay.
