    We love The Bend and don’t Holiday anywhere else. Sheila and her staff are always friendly and welcoming. The play area for the kids is wonderful too. Sheila’s cooking is outstanding. Can’t wait for next year.

    Amazing views from our room and wonderful home cooked meal. Rooms were a good size and the gas fireplace was a nice addition. Great place for kids to run around and explore farm life as well. Would return.
