If you are into a chill place, Edwards is it! I stayed in a bungalow room - spotlessly clean and just what you need and no more. The decor was simple, practical, and restful. There is a small flat screen TV which I never turned on while I was there. WiFi and AC worked well. You could get ice for your ice bucket at the office each day and also get a bag of ice for just a buck. They thoughtfully have a 'cooler mat' to place your cooler on to catch the condensation. The bathroom only has a roomy shower which was very nice but I did miss a bathtub to soak in after a day of bike riding and walking. The small windows keep the room on the dark side but the porch with rocking chairs and side table is like an extension to your room space and I spent a good bit of time outside in the morning or evening. Coffee and simple breakfast was just down the street which I fetched on my bike each morning and consumed on the porch. I never moved my car the entire time I was there but used my bike. The staff were as nice as can be. I'll be going back next summer!
