“Place is cool as the pictures show. Eclectic decoration, artsy and has special touches. Perfect for people that want to eat in. There is Netflix if you want to watch a movie. The place is quiet and located close to downtown. Jessica, Troy and Ellen were very fast to reply to our emails and care about our stay. Will totally stay here again.”

What guests are saying:

“If you ever wanted to try out a tiny house, this is your chance! It's a minimalist's model! Selena's Place is cozy, clean and decorated with pretty asian prints and artifacts. She has thought of everything you might need to make your stay comfy (including a mini-washer and dryer). It's surrounded with lovely woods that make you go "ahhh" when you walk out the door and start back on your journey. I, who tend to speed, had enough residual peace to do the speed limit for at least an hour after I left her place. I wasn't there long enough to check out local attractions, but I am interested in coming back and checking out the Devil's Millhopper Geological State Park and I hope to stay at Selena's!”
