    Fantastic hotel to stay at anytime. Super nice Innkeeper and staff. Really clean and bed was the best I slept in! The whole second floor is a game room. Breakfast was something new with an orange slush, then french toast with pecans.

    We were on the far end, on the second floor and we could see the mountains. I'm sure the third floor had even better views. There is an awesome sunrise from the window.
