    Quiet Townsend, what a great place to have special time. Found this locally owned, mom and pop place online and it exceeded my expectations. Checked in for a 3 day stay by a friendly guy, perhaps one of the owners, you could feel the pride...More

    Our room was at west end of the property, just several rooms away from the pool. My wife and I didn't use the pool. So i'm unable to give a good answer! The rooms are very nicely kept and comfortable!
