I chose Fair Winds because of its location--about four minutes from my daughter's camper. I will go back again, won't even see if there are other places I might like better--because how could I?? Fair Winds is clean, comfy, well-stocked. Alison is a gem to work with via email ahead of time. I should have asked how she gets those towel so fluffy. Table is roomy enough for six, so the family joined us for meals. Bed was comfy. Floors are hardwood, so you can see they are clean. Rocking chairs on deck are a nice touch; we sat out there and talked while the kids watched a movie.
Verizon did not work there, but I knew that ahead of time.
Nearby creek is perfect for the kids to play in (bring water pistols or something for them and lawn chairs for yourself). It had rained pretty much, so the creek was running pretty fast and about twenty feet wide. We waded down creek to a flat gravel bar, and the current was safe there for the 6- and 8-year old to go knee deep (their limit in running water). If we'd had younger kids with us, we would have just kept them in the shallows.
