      We never got to stay here because they somehow got our reservations wrong, blaming it on Expedia, despite making them about 2 months in advance. We had reserved a room with two beds, but they gave us a room with one bed. We had printed (yup, good old paper) the original reservation to show the mistake. But being that it was Labor Day weekend, they were booked solid and had nothing else to give us. The woman on duty was exceptionally apologetic and very kind. She called the manager, who basically said, "too bad." We tried to make it work, using the pull-out couch, even though we weren't happy about that. But the room was way too small for both the pull-out couch and bed. We had to move the couch, which opened on a slant and completely blocked the bathroom and exit. If there was a fire, the person in the bed would have been trapped. I asked her to try to find a room at another establishment. Luckily, she did. We wound up staying at Ducktrap Motel a mile north, which actually was better anyway, as it was farther from the loud highway and the floor didn't shake when someone walked up the stairs. Had a nice lawn and fire pit, tooIt was also cheaper, but no breakfast. However, because this rearrangement took so long, we had to abandon our evening plans, which was annoying. It looked like a very cute place and we were super excited when we pulled in, but it didn't work out. If you want to stay there, don't go through Expedia and call often to confirm. Or just stay at Ducktrap Motel.
