If you don't need a room service, if you don't mind horses grazing steps away from your cabin, if you don't mind your car is parked uphill one hundred yards away... a Dreamcatcher wagon is a perfect stay. Only noise here are birds and swaying of the trees. Only colours you see are sky blue and all shades of green. Only lights in the night are moon Read moreand stars. And there is only one sign of luxury: a private outdoor hot tub ( but you have to heat it up on yourself!). Thank you Sue and John! Hide
