5 out of 5
We absolutely loved our stay. The property staff were so friendly and helpful. Our Inn was beautiful decorated and even my 11 year old son loved it so much he says he only wants to stay at Inn’s not hotels. I also loved the outside decorations with the Koi fish. Everything about our stay was so charming. We loved it. Also, we love the name- our daughters name is McKinley. I’m so glad it was everything we wanted and so much more.
