It was a strange to stay. If you are looking for simplicity, solace, meditation, and walking around the grounds then this is your place to stay. The halls at night were dark. We felt that we were in the movie "The Shining". We stayed for one night at the beginning of September and it was hot, so we left the windows opened at night. They are no screens in the window or AC. In the middle of the night, we heard something flying around the room and they turned out to be 3 bats. Fortunately, they found their way out. The toilette was like being in an airplane - vaccum style system.
