I love boutique hotels for their character and uniqueness. Only negative was the rooms were not acoustically separated. We heard conversations in the parking lot and from the couple staying next door.

This property is perfect if you appreciate basic amenities and a retro feel. Rooms are fairly small but adequate for one or two persons. Given the one bed per room set-up, that's also the maximum amount of people able to stay in each room.

Thank you for your review of our property! We would love to have you join us again, and I would suggest checking out the suites in our Main House. Our suites feature bedroom and living room areas, and have a futon for an extra guest to sleep on. We also have rollaway beds that can be reserved for an extra sleeping space! We hope you will visit us again in the future.

Great botique hotel

Loved our stay, nice restaurant on site, ice cream store across the street, complimentary bikes and a great walking trail goes right past the hotel. Record player in each room and vinyl to check out in lobby. Cool vibe to the place, definitely go back again.
