Karl and Lorna are great - we remembered each other from my stay two years ago, and they are enthusiastic hosts.

The hosts at Port Charlotte bent over backwards to make our stay comfortable . They called a restaurant for us , called a yarn and wool shop for us , offered to change a room To 2 twins rather than a Bunk and were generally super kind and helpful . It's a beautiful location .
