As a licensed massage therapist for many years, I am excited to offer massage as a perfect compliment to the relaxing environment of the Big Bungalow. Roll out of bed, receive a massage and feel great all day - or receive a massage before going to sleep for a perfect night of rest.

"I only stayed two nights, but I feel like I've made a friend. I will come back."

"Definitely a 10!!!"

"What a wonderful wedding gift from our friend Holly! We had a great weekend!"

"Well, this is really an InnKeeper's comment. I knew ahead of time that Jerry was going to propose. The Champagne and chocolate was already set out. The next morning just before breakfast, Leanne came in to the kitchen and held up her hand to show me her ring. I cried, she cried ... thank goodness she said yes!! It was a moment I'll never forget. I'm so proud to have been a part of such a special and important event. Leanne said they'll be back to rekindle the romance."
