If you need a master suite, with whirlpools, bidets, granite and marble, towel warmers and bathrobes, this is probably not your place. If you like rustic, ambiance and want to be awed, this probably is your place. The bottom line, this is a very comfortable home that has all that Estes was, is, and will be.
