We had an amazing time. This place is gorgeous. Don't consider staying anywhere else in the region. I had some business to attend in the area and brought my family. I was a bit hesitant to stay when I looked at the website, I thought it would be a bit too country and perhaps conservative for me. It is anything but. The decor is western and country but it is open and lovely with elegance. The decor is MUCH nicer than the photos represent. We were surprised with delight to realize how spacious our cabin was. The owners have thought of everything. If someone here would have told me it had a bit of a Beekman Boy's feel with the goat soap and the llamas and a touch of Brokeback Mountain with the horses plus some Western Cowboy fun I would have got it. Really it is better than all that. The beds are very firm. The bathroom fan is quiet. The soaps are lovely. They buy many from a neighbor soap maker. They buy the baskets from another Amish neighbor. It is great to see them supporting the local businesses and giving you a sense of the history. The added plus of the DVD in our cabin explaining the history of the area really gave us an additional appreciation of the area we stayed in. We understood it much better when we later went canoeing and hiking in the reserve. Cowboy Joe's cookies and attention to detail rock. Cowboy David is so handsome and a great conversationist.
Now the best part is the gorgeous property they maintain. I can't imagine how much work it must be to pick up every speck of trash, to maintain all the fences, to take care of the many horses - that graze by your cabins and to keep every inch meticulous. Thank you for all the work you do so that people like us can take in the amazing views, the wonderful sounds of nature and the serene atmosphere. This place is a gift.
