    So peaceful, clean and communal. Enjoyed the interaction with other guests and the half bath option as a backup for full bath. Slept so deeply in comfortable beds and quietest surroundings I can recall EVER! Stayed 3 nights and northern lights...

    This place had beautiful views! The hosts were very welcoming and friendly! The room was clean and updated. Breakfast was right outside our room which was very convenient in the morning! We enjoyed sitting outside at night enjoying the sunshine!
