I stayed in the hayloft and enjoyed it very much. Lots of nooks and crannies and everything, and more, that one would expect to find in a hotel. Cecil has great advice on where to go, and what to do (he's basically done it all). If you do not want to drive, this is a great area to walk around, sight-see, etc... (there is nice architecture almost anywhere one looks). Awesome breakfasts. I felt very at home.
