The only thing worth the stop was the waterfall. The store was smaller than a bedroom. A couple were talking in the doorway and we couldn't even get in the tiny store. If they served food, you wouldn't know it. Won't visit again.

We were in route to lunch and stopped here. Wow. I'm so happy we did. Love the little shop and hidden water fall. Lots of pics. My son also loved the chicken. I enjoyed all the knick knacks throughout on display in the trees.

This is a place I have driven past for years and never knew what it was. Finally, last Saturday we decided to try it out. The little shop has a more earthy, Oregon type vibe. The little deck that you can sit and eat at...More

We sure do. Our local smoked trout plate is gluten free if you skip the crackers. Any of our sandwiches if you leave the bread. Our Friendly Fall-Chos are our take on nachos. They would work too. Hope to see you soon... More
