The down side to our underdeveloped area is we do not have lodging right close by us. The closest is 7-8 miles depending on where you stay. But there a lot of options out there.

The very very best both for comfort, location and cost is hands down VRBO. We can not stress enough how nice the homes are, better cost and better value and many have pools and spas and are with in 1-5 miles of us. If your coming with a group of friends or for a workshop this makes it even more cost effective. there are many that do short term so it can be for 3-4 nights, not a full week.
