A great place to stay!
The owner greeted us & was kind enough to let us check in 1/2 and hour early. He also was super helpful with checking in about our plans for the next day as a storm was coming in to where we were headed. The food in the Restaurant was delicious at both breakfast and dinner. The owner and staff were all lovely to interact with and very helpful! Overall a lovely property even in a very windy snowy March!
