    Thank you so much for posting this !

    Turns out it's in our back yard ! We'll be checking it out and letting you know how goes it! Seems promising. They've got some nice amenities, and it's a pretty place.

      Yes, I’ve been several times and the owners were very hospitable. The ownership seems to have changed to a new “chain” hotel now though and I have not been there yet. I’ll have to update it soon and get the Ph and TDS as well while I’m enjoying floating around. 🙂
