Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
What a delightful experience. The room was spacious, the building and grounds were lovely, and it’s situated right in the heart of tons of great hiking and other adventures. The proprietors are delightful; you can have a conversation about electric vehicles one minute, and caring for a 100 year-old inn the next. Such a nice change from impersonal and “cookie-cutter” accommodations found in so many vacation get-away areas.
