Thanks for well thought out review! Sorry to hear you had trouble sleeping due to the noise of the people outside. They are louder during the summer weekends than any other time of the year - and unfortunately your visit fell over labor day weekend. I am able to drown out their noise with the aid of a fan or the A/C unit. However, if you are person who needs complete quiet to sleep, earplugs are a good idea. I will make an effort to have some on hand for future guests.
