Vaulted ceilings, cool exposed trusses, french provincial chandelier, sconces, and accents

Too many nooks to share a bottle of wine or linger over a cup of steaming, locally roasted coffee.
The views from The Creole Hot Tub are spectacular.
Lighting is very important to us.

Exposed trusses and multiple seating options. Rustic cozy comfort.
Handcrafted, of couse!
