Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful getaway I booked to stay here for a week for a meditation retreat, and it was just the perfect location. Serene, peaceful, quiet location in nature (with amazing views), and a fully stocked house made things much more comfortable. The owner was truly helpful in all aspects and with any questions I had. Thank you so very much, I most definitely will be back :)
