Oh Charlie. Such a good poser. What can I say. Charlie has become the star of our reviews. We have many guests come with their dogs. If you dog is well behaved and friendly - they are welcome! This photo was taken Oct. 12. The fall colors are incredible and have not even peaked yet!

Great off-the-grid weekend. Very quiet and peaceful. Close to the Daughter’s of the American Revolution State Park where there are great trails that are dog friendly.

"The bathroom was further away than expected ”. I try to be very clear on how far the bathroom is in my description (and honestly - vey clear about everything so there are no surprises for anyone) and I say that the bathroom is a 2 min. walk. I've not heard this before from anyone else but maybe I need to retime that walk!
