My mother and I stayed over Mother's Day weekend because she had driven past it for years and had wanted to give it a try...we loved it, the home is lovely. We stayed in Aunt K's room and the beds were great. It's in perfect walking distance to the park and the spring water is great as well. Sunday morning in the park, you get to see all the locals bringing in their water containers to gather their spring water for the week. In the afternoons you'll see families eating in the park and watch the kids splashing in the creek. Breakfast was a pleasure and I definitely recommend you do the Saturday evening dinner for $40.00...Nancy is an awesome cook. JC will tell you stories and is a very entertaining host.
