Our home uses modern technology to make your stay more enjoyable.  We only use technologies that are easy to use.  Example: rather than requiring 2 or 3 remotes to turn a TV on and find something to watch, all of our TVs use a single remote control with simple operating instructions posted by each TV.

Our home provides fiber optic 100MB broadband Internet service and uses a 3 location mesh network to ensure all areas of our home (and pool patio) have reliable high speed Internet access for all your mobile devices.  See below for details on our technologies:

11 Smart TVs with Streaming Services

  • All bedrooms except the bunkbed room have a smart TV

  • Living room, gameroom and the pool patio each have a smart TV

  • Instructions posted near each TV
