I wish the coupon had been applied. I stayed at Tioga Falls and it said the next booking would have a discount. For the Hall House, the house was very nice and the setting beautiful. It was nice and relaxing. The bed was out of this world comfortable! The couch in the family room by the fireplace was super nice! Everything was great!


Thank you for taking the time to review your stay, Scott! We are delighted to know you found Hall Riverside to be a comfortable setting to take in the beauty of the area and relax! I wish you let us know about your return guest discount not being applied, as we truly appreciate you rebooking with us and checking out another Freshwater property. I will email over some information to help with your next stay, and hopefully we will get a chance to host you again in the future!
