Lots of room and very close to Main Street. Was perfect in every way and would highly recommend. The owner was also available anytime if we had any questions or needed any assistance.

It was the best of both worlds providing privacy, and just a short drive to Main St for shopping and nightlife. We would definitely stay here again!
