5 out of 5
This was a fantastic property. The beds were comfortable, the room was clean, and every morning we had a great breakfast (eggs, sausage, gravy, biscuits, pancakes, etc.). My granddaughter enjoyed the indoor swimming pool, and my husband was impressed by the roomy garage. He has a large GMC Sierra pickup and was able to park it without any issues. Main Street was only a few blocks walking distance, too!
