Everything is as per the photos and description, it is a wonderfully restored former Methodist chapel with every comfort. It would appear from reading the guestbook that the owner has followed up on any suggestions made by guests, the latest being the addition of wifi. This is quite useful and solves the problem of lack of cell (mobile) call and data coverage - the signal is weak on the property and cannot penetrate stone walls. But then again, you should really be outside on a hike anyways! We would have no hesitation returning to this rural gem.
