Sleeps 8-10 adults comfortably. Plus a few more kids.

2 themed bedrooms: The Jungle Room for kids; The Hunting Lodge for adults.

3rd Bedroom on Main Floor, too. The theater room can be easily converted into a 4th bedroom as it has room for air mattresses (queen air mattress provided) and has a fold out couch for extra guests).
