Warm, comfortable room. Friendly hosts greeted us with a delicious glass of wine. Super convenient location right on US 20 just west of Elizabeth. Close to Chestnut Mountain ski resort at a reasonable rate. Definitely will be back...hopefully this season! Thanks for your hospitality!

This place is great! The owners couldn't be nicer and the room we had was very comfortable and very clean. When you see the surrounding landscape you will quickly realize why they call it The View. One of the coolest places I've stayed in a long time!
