Our first time staying at a B & B. The inside & out side were excellent. A pool, hammock, grill and much more. The innkeepers were attentive. Every room has it's own bath, all very clean. Yes it is a work in progress but this young couple is working very hard to update TV and fix minor problems. Very close to downtown. We would stay here again. Pleasantly priced.

Excellent B&B

Even though the temperatures were low during it visit, after bundling up, it was pleasant walk into town. Sure beats driving for a night out après ski. Our hosts were friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed the Keurig in the common area.
