    I keep reading reviews that the hotel is possible closing in May for renovations, can anyone confirm this for me. My friends and i are staying in late May and are panicking that our renovations may be messed up if this is true!

    I concur. Marie, the proprietor, is an upright person. Ask her or Kevin about possible renovations. I'm confident you'll get a forthright answer.
