We enjoyed having three levels so that though 14 of us were able to be altogether, we could also feel we had some separation. Too, the location was away from the congestion of the strip and other tourist attractions, yet certainly within easy driving distance of the activities we wanted to do. The owner was very easy to work with and the online app was easy to access and use. We enjoyed the amenities that were provided and the close access to a pool. We especially enjoyed the day we spent at Dogwood Canyon, hiking and picnicking and the kids had a great time at Silver Dollar City! The kids AND adults sped happily along the go kart tracks at The Family Fun Park, which offered several different tracks. Good places to eat were Little Hacienda in Hollister-be sure to have a margarita-and if you want good pizza, try the Hook and Ladder in Hollister. A bonus for us on the 4th of July was the ability to see great fireworks all around us from the comfort of our porch at Nature's Retreat!
