      Great weekend in July.

      For a 98 year old Inn the Hotel is Great. Awesome food, very friendly and helpful staff. The Restaurant is a must !! If you are looking for the Ritz or Four Seasons then look elsewhere. The Facility is Clean neat and well cared for. It is an older Building with many updates and lots of charm.
