    We so enjoyed our stay at Cheryl and Ellis' home. They were very communicative, accommodating, and helpful. We would recommend this stop.

    Very welcoming couple. They offered parking in their driveway due to all the rain making the ground quite soft. We had a very quiet restful night.

    Host met us upon arrival, even though it was late and rainy! Very helpful with setting us up and information. Welcomed and invited us to stay again ... which we will if we’re in the area again.
