My wife, kids (8&10) and myself stayed here in 2012 and just LOVED it. There was a brief fight over who got to stay in the dog's nose, but everyone had a great night's sleep, except me. I woke up at 2am to the strangest swoosh-thumping sound I'd ever heard. Shwthump. pause for minute. Shwthump. repeat. Protective-Dad instincts on full alert, I crept around trying to figure it out - we were the only ones in the dog, everyone was asleep, we were 20' off the ground, what the HECK?!!!
Then my drive & sleep-addled brain figured it out, it was the Dog's *ears* blowing against the building in the wind! The only time a dog's ears had waken me before or since.
Everyone had a good laugh, and everyone agreed it was one of the best places and memorable we had ever stayed.
