Nice Place but WiFi was a problem most of the time
This is a nice setting next to a running creek. However it is a very large property with many units in standalone two floor buildings. The rooms are very nicely furnished. My major problem was the WiFi was intermittent much of the time and in the morning didn't work at all. For many travelers WiFi is much more important than this is a major problem. I will be reluctant to come back because of this. Being down for and hour or two OK...but problems with it for 16 hrs not acceptable.
