Quiet little spot that was just what we were looking for. The caretakers were awesome and gave great recommendations. The homemade breakfast in the mornings was delicious!

Ellen's place was great! We would stay again. My wife and I stayed 7 nights. There are great places to eat near by and a grocery store. Read all the details listed about place and ask questions beforehand so there are no surprises. We would stay again!
