A beautiful and peaceful place to stay in Byron while still only a short uber ride to the center of town. Our room had a gorgeous view of the valley. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. I’m looking forward to staying here again.

Amazing view, very peaceful and clean!! Quite private room. Definitely would stay next time we are down that way! It’s the perfect location, so close to town but still far enough away to enjoy the atmosphere.
