This is a super adorable mother-in-law apartment located in a enchanted back yard. It is a really neat space, and I will always check for its availability when I return. Comes with a covered parking spot!

Joan was amazing! She was more than happy to accommodate me and my guest! Very sweet and generous. (: will be staying here again next time! There isn’t too much to do in the area, but it’s right off the highway if you don’t mind driving places!
