Pros:I loved everything from the king bed to the sheets to the fireplace to the private porch to the awesome cook and friendly staff! They were there to accommodate you afternoon tea and pastries, dvds to borrow, umbrellas to borrow and knowledge about the location. I would have stayed forever if we could. But instead we will just make it our spot to visit annually.
