Great service.
The location is great. It was easy to walk to town. The property is older and not updated, but it's in good condition and clean. The hostess Dominique is lovely and she provides excellent, friendly service.

Cozy Secret Garden
Lovely and quaint. Dominique is a wonderful host and was very accommodating and really cares about her guests. The garden is vibrant and colorful. The daffodils were just starting to bloom!

The only reason I was low was because my pillow was awful. I’ll just bring my own next time.
