Magical, even in winter!
This place is a real gem for groups. I've never found a spot that so beautifully accommodates a crew of more than 12. Comfortable bed spots; a well-outfitted kitchen; gorgeous, serene yoga studio; and grounds that are so much fun to explore. It's easy to access from the city, and close to a grocery store. Plus, the rooms have beautiful light and space for everyone to come together or escape as needed.
Lewis was lovely, communicative, and accommodating — a wonderful host! An unforgettable experience all around.
Fantastic Stay in a great location with wonderful hosts! What more could you ask for.
