We are glad the other reservations didn't pan out. We had a wonderful anniversary/birthday. Thanks Shantal for a great stay! This was the perfect place for our 10 year wedding anniversary. The room (Mesa Vista) was so much fun that we didn't want to do much but hang out there. Comfy bed and great sitting areas. We also loved the overall feel of the place. It was great talking and getting to know you. We hope to see you again and stay again sometime! Stacey & Chris
