Very unique barnhome on a gorgeous property. It was perfect for our family of 6. It is a short walk away from a waterfall and suspension bridge. The view is splendid. The owners were very friendly.

Everything was great about the house. It was close to a wonderful waterfall and a suspended bridge. The house was very clean and nicely arranged.
The only items we might have has any issues with was the beds were a bit uncomfortable. But husband does have a bit of back issues. And the wood left for the fire pit didn't burn very well. It just smoked up a lot. We bought wood for the next night and it was much better. Other than that it was an awesome easy and quiet weekend which was something we were needing. Thank you for such a great place to relax.
