The best spot ever!
This place is amazing.....and is much nicer than pictured. Annette was a great host, and the Bach had everything we needed to hunker down and relax for 5 days. Our little dog was welcome as well. The area is stunning to explore, and even though the weather was cold, we were cozy and warm. We highly recommend it!!
