January 2018

  • 5 of 5

Great place. Clean. Plenty of towels. Lots of spaces to gather. Loved the table which accommodated all of us. Plenty of dishes and utensils.

Would like to have had access to the garage. Also, there is a stipulation of having all the dishes clean and put away by noon of the check out date... I would have liked to see that just leaving the dishes started and in the dishwasher acceptable.

Overall, great place and experience.
