Every room is unique; we were in a round room with a huge private bathroom attached. King bed was very comfortable. Two side chairs allowed us to pull up to the prelaid logs in the fireplace and enjoy a small fire in the evening. Breakfast was AWESOME! Hot sausage biscuits, scones, OJ, little jarss of yogurt & fresh fruit all delivered to the room in a wire basket shortly after the call to the desk! Quiet and beautiful property!

Fireplace in the Room was nice!

Pros: The fireplace in the room was nice, and housekeeping 'set' a fire most days. Breakfast is delivered to the room; great coffee, marginal food
Cons: Lower rates - not a good price/value at posted, regular rates
Location: Beautiful area with lots of springs and waterfalls nearby. Recommend Sam Snead tavern and Homestead for dining, Cucci's for a quick bite
This would (maybe) be a good choice for someone visiting the area planning to be hiking, mountain-biking, etc. Not so convenient for a business traveler. Electrical plug-ins are limited, and one that was accessible was very worn, such that plugs would literally fall back out. There was a small fridge in the room, but no microwave - which would have been nice since the onsite restaurant has an extremely limited and over-priced menu, and alternatives are few and far between in this very rural area. Was surprised to find they would not accept a government lodging rate -as the property has quite a bit of deferred maintenance (rotten boards on the front porch, very dirty upholstered furniture, carpets in need of cleaning, bathroom sink that ran slow or clogged regularly, no space or lighting conducive to working, etc.) - when the Travelocity rate I took advantage of was actually less than the government rate!
