This is a great spot close to the park with a nice country feel. I stayed with my sister and retired parents for five days and then ended up staying on alone for another couple of nights to accommodate a business trip. I was definitely not in a hurry to leave! It has a really peaceful, calm feel to the place. Logistics to the parks is as good as you can get, barring actually staying in the park, so you're guaranteed to have lots of curvy road driving. This is a universal truth of national parks after all!
Bettina was a gracious hostess and she did everything she could to make our stay comfortable. The wifi was strong, which was good since I spent some time working remotely. One morning at around 10am while tapping away on my keyboard I looked up to see a very healthy looking bobcat cruise through the woods just behind the house. And seeing quail come through the yard a couple times was a treat.
