    Absolutely perfect

    This sweet family runs the river rafting trips for Camp Lotus which is a short walk away. I sat in the river's rejuvenating waters every evening. The unit has everything for comfort including two friendly dogs and a cat who visit often. A family of 4 would be very comfortable in the spacious room. What a pleasure to have a full refrigerator and functional kitchen. I enjoyed sunset's rosy glow on the porch's vista of golden hillsides clumped with dark oaks, and would have loved the starry night except that the moon was one of the biggest and brightest of the year during my stay. I heard songbirds, distant roosters in the morning, cattle lowing, in the evening and an occasional woodpeckers tapping on the wall. The family composts and recycles, and there is a beautiful feeling of connection to Mother Earth there. I enjoyed the happy chatter of rafters packing out some mornings and packing in some evenings. and the friendly, easy, accepting atmosphere. I can't wait to return.

  • 8,0.Very good

    It was okay, but didn't meet expectations.

    The unit definitely needed more cleaning before we arrived. The bathroom shower was the worst offender. There were cobwebs and spiders in the kitchen and across the table. Unfortunately there were hot water issues which an adult can handle but children do not understand and it was exhausting to shower them through their tears. The unit was about 90° inside when we arrived and impossible to sleep. The owners ask that you not run the AC during the day, which was impossible with my 24/7 morning sickness. We might have come at at really bad time so I don't want to give 3 stars for benefit of the doubt, so I am graciously giving 4. Adults could handle the uncomfortable stay but not the children, we had to make other accommodations for them. It has great potential but definitely needs TLC.
