We were passing through for the night. Owners very accommodating. We had a great evening around the fire with smores, drinks and sing along. Liz is a very talented lady. Room was small, cutely decorated with some expensive furnishings. King bed was very comfortable.

Great ownership and people. Small family run hotel. We were skeptical at first but it was the only place in town that had a room available. I was glad we did as the owner gave us great ideas for more quieter hikes and places to see. I would definitely stay there again.

❤️😊Yes we are. We have a $10 fee, ask that you clean up after them and don't leave them in the room alone. 😊❤️ Our mascot Timo loves new friends.

Good Morning! Check in is at 3 but if you are there early and the girls are done with your room we always just let you in. Also, if you know you are going to be early and let us know, we will do your room first. We make s'mores nightly by the river fire pit, have a movie library 📚 of over 700 movies, free WIFI, books to read in the rooms and lobby, and are located in paradise. We purposely decided to forgo cable TV. Once in awhile someone has to have their TV, but most people welcome the break.
