(Private exit, sitting area, Jacuzzi, and the décor). You made us feel right at home. I was relaxed and loved the smells from the kitchen. It reminded me of my childhood. (Usually, I’m baking in the kitchen and someone else gets the advantage of the smells!) It has also been a long time since I drove roads like these. My childhood was spent living on the top of the mountain. Thanks again for a wonderful memory.” – Port Charlotte, FL
