Hi Susan, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at this wonderful and unique property and look forward to welcoming you back in the future! I heard that the children had a great time helping to feed the fish in the trout pond. Although the property is so much fun for children, the stairs are quite steep. We encourage guests to take that in to consideration when booking the property. Thanks for choosing to stay with us! Kim Estock. iTrip Vacations
