The accommodations were very clean and the staff friendly. The owners are in the process of modernizing aspects of the cottages/rooms. We had everything we needed and the playground was a huge hit with the kids. I would not hesitate to go back and recommend to others.

Friendly and clean spot, for a night or two.
The first thing that needs to be said is that the owners are super nice and are working hard to make updates. The rooms are clean, however, quite dated and in need of some renovations. Great place to stay for a night or two, convenient to St. Peter’s, and has so nice amenities. If you want to bbq, They are quick to provide a bbq, and they even provided wood for a fire in the designated area that evening. Beds are definitely hard and basic but clean. Welcoming and accommodating place to stay!
