This property is a bit outside of the township, it claims to be quiet are a bit overrated as it is right by the main highway so traffic all night. I was a bit disappointed as the chalet we were in had a locked door which was another bedroom which if I knew about on the website would have happily paid for. The chalet itself was very nice had everything you might need if cookin for yourself.
