“Great Place”

We went to visit our son during spring break and stayed at the forest view studio. It was a great place to stay. Large, roomy, well stocked with every convenience, clean and close to every thing. And very quiet. We enjoyed ourselves, even with the rain - and they had umbrellas for us to use. Thanks again for having such nice places to stay - a home away from home.

“Better than "Home Away from Home"!”

Forest View is the cleanest, nicest and most well supplied place I've stayed in while visiting my daughter at HSU.
