This is a nice place to get away from it all. The views are beautiful, the grounds lovely and there's an abundance of wildlife. The rooms are large and comfortable. The downsides, for us, were that there was a pretty skimpy offering for continental breakfast - muffin or english muffin, store-bought granola or instant (flavored) oatmeal, and fruit. While we don't necessarily need a huge breakfast, perhaps if it is a continental breakfast, we could get a little healthier option? The other thing we missed was the interaction with other guests. Since there is no common areas other than outside, there's not much chance to chat with other guests, or for that matter, the owners or Michele, the manager. Even though she said she was available for anything we might need, it felt a little intrusive to knock on her door.
All that being said, we did enjoy our stay, even with the rainy weather!
