  • Great reviews! Looks like you're able to combine the beds into a king? If so, are the two beds held together with king sheets? Just making sure you can't fall through the two... ;) Also, on the junior suite, looks like the bath is downstairs from the bedroom? Thanks!

    Yes to king sheets, one suite has the bathroom downstairs, the other upstairs (junior suite 2)
