We spent one night in the Honeymoon cabin. The cabin is cute. Room to spread out. Didn't use the jacuzzi tub. Didn't look the cleanest. Loved the shower, but weird that there are no towel bars or hooks or anything to put towels and other things on. No real place to hang anything as there are no closets or bars....

A wonderfully relaxing hideaway! Quiet setting among the trees. Sitting on the back porch swing at sundown made us feel almost like we were in a secluded treehouse. Nice homey country cabin. Breakfast included fruit, brownies, cookies & muffins. Very comfy!!!

My wife enjoyed the breakfast (platter of pastries and fruit) and dinner every night at the Blue Boar was Awesome.

The bed was comfortable, the...

A small table and chairs right out side the backdoor. A great place to go and...
