Shell House - Great Stay!

5 of 5
Beds were comfortable and kitchen well stocked. I brought my own large roasting pan as we were there for Thanksgiving. The futon not as comfy for sleeping, but my college aged son didn't mind really. He was excited to find a pilsner glass there from a local bar at his university in PA! Spiral stairs are fine for most, but definitely not for elderly or super young IMO. My mother in law tried them to see the other levels, but wasn't super comfortable doing so. Heat didn't work the first night but we found a space heater. The following day we called David, and it was fixed within the hour. Fantastic!
