Salt Flats – WHY STAY IN A HOTEL. ENJOY A LOFT STYLE APARTMENT

Upon entering, you’ll see the amazing job the owners did in designing the space. The living room, dining room and kitchen flow into one another without being the least bit crowded. A must have screened in porch was added this year.  The window in the kitchen can be opened as a pass thru so you may enjoy an outdoor meal or simply drinks at the end of the day.
