The bed is extremely comfortable, the jetted tub is powerful and very romantic. For couples on a budget, the kitchen offers everything you need to prepare your food. We had a minor issue with a clogged toilet but Tanya and her husband were very attentive and understanding in getting it fixed as soon as possible. We enjoyed our stay in this area and will do so again!

It's thoughtfully stocked with essentials, beautifully decorated, and comfortable. Between the comfy king bed and the large windows, it makes for an awesome romantic weekend. Tanya was kind and thoughtful, making sure we had everything we needed and offering helpful suggestions about the surrounding area. Thanks Tanya, we'll definitely be in touch next time we're in the area!
