I absolutely loved my stay here. John & J were so welcoming and accommodating. I ended staying at the bottom of the driveway and it was perfect. John had knowledge of hiking trails in the area that my dog and I got to explore. I definitely recommend this stay!

We had a great time with John and Jo. They were welcoming. We even made Jo run who had to catch up with us because we had missed the entrance. Very calm and peaceful place. Surrounded by trees. Thanks also to them for taking the time to talk with us despite the language barrier. We will gladly come back

John and Jo were very accommodating and friendly. The spot was so peaceful and it was easy to get a good night's sleep. I enjoyed the Willimantic Brewing Company located in an old post office nearby that John recommended. I hope to stay again when I'm in the area.
