My mother & her friend stayed in the nicely kept home. Dennis & Rosemary were very attentive to detail making sure the property was ready for them and furnished with up to date & clean small appliances & supplies. The park is well maintained with a wide variety of activities for them to enjoy. The caretaker lives nearby and was able to assist with minor needs, ie change a light bulb. He was available & on time for check in and even assisted with getting them settled. Thank you for an enjoyable experience all the way around.
