    It was okay. Clean and kids loved the pool . But most of the other things needed updating.

    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!

    I liked the cottage it was pleasant. The fridge could use an update and maybe some better utensils for bbqing. Outdoor garbage could be looked at for improvement.
