          My husband is battling a serious illness. I would love to treat he and I and our 4 adult kids to a weekend of solitude and beauty. I see that the weekend of Oct 17 & 18 seems pretty booked. I would like to have access to hot tub for all of us to relax under the stars with a great view off the back deck. Can you please recommend the best room (for 6) and or time to see the leaves during this time? Prefer a weekend if possible. Sincerely, kymberlyk
