  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The inn keepers were very friendly and nice. They were very helpful. I just wished the hallways were better lite. The light switch was at the end of one hallway instead the front.

Very clean

Very clean, cozy cabin with its own snow play area. They charge $20 per vehicle per day (Jan 2018) to use the snow play area if you are not a hotel guest. The beds are soft (not great if you prefer hard beds). Overall, great for 1-2 nights stay.
