Here are a few photos from the “work in progress” reel. Since we opened in May 2016 we have been consistently updating our Hostel to be more comfortable. At the end of 2017 we added a new private room with a full size bed option. In January 2018, we ripped up all the carpets in the hostel and installed laminate wood floors. In April 2018 we turned our stand alone “Cottage” building into a completely private rental space and in February 2019 we did a complete remodel. Now the cottage is equipped with a small kitchenette, full bathroom, and full size bed. Follow our progress from day 1 to today, below. Hope you enjoy! Here you can also find a story written by our local newspaper.
