We will never stay anywhere else when visiting this area. We liked the place so much we made next year's reservations before we left. The site is close to town, but you'd think you were a hundred miles from the nearest town, as it's off the road and into the woods. You can't hear the traffic, even though the main highway is only half a mile away. Jodee will spoil you with a huge and wonderful breakfast each morning. Doug knows exactly when the fire is dying down and appears magically to add more logs. Both are willing to chat and help with directions or information on local places, but neither is hanging about. They'll leave you to your quiet space, and go hang out in their own!
By far the best place we've stayed. We needed the handicap accessible room, and it actually IS accessible. I've stayed in five-star hotels that really weren't. You can transfer from chair to bed. The whirlpool tub has a wide tile border that can be used for transfer (there is no transfer chair in there, and I didn't ask.) with dual shower heads. The desk has a stable chair.
I'd recommend this to everyone...AFTER my reservations are made!
