    I have to admit, we were pretty nervous as our taxi pulled into this hotel. It's on a gravel road out of town, surrounded by farms! However, we were pleasantly surprised as we walked into the complex of bungalows--so serene and quiet, with an A+...More

    Hello, I am having a hard time finding contact information for this hotel. We would like to know if you have availability for two adults 12/25-12/29 or 12/26-12/30. We would prefer 2 beds, but are open to one king bed if that is what is available. We are looking forward to hearing from you. Rachel
