See What Our Guests Are Saying

“Our planned 10 year anniversary trip in Mexico was canceled due to Covid but my husband and I still wanted to celebrate and get out within driving distance. Having health issues, I was weary about venturing out, but literally could not have picked a better spot. Cleanliness was unreal (keys in sanitized box, contactless temp readings, hand sanitizer at every entrance/exit, rooms extra cleaned with UV lights, everyone wearing masks), and the property is beautiful and meticulously well-maintained. They even brought breakfast up to our room in an effort not to have people gathering in main house. Everyone was so nice. I know they’ve been around for a long time, but I feel like a stumbled onto a gem…” – Chelsey Cox, Google

“This place is fabulous! We are happy that they are open again. Definitely, very clean and going over and above current CDC guidelines. As always, staff was very receptive and the room and property were amazing as always. We really needed a day getaway and they were the answer. I’m looking forward to our next time, thanks to everyone! Also, Diane’s room is amazing!” – JP Deluca, Google
