    Can you walk to the water or to a hiking trail?

    Who is the artist that is featured throughout the hotel? I believe it is a female artist. There were paintings of homes displaying flags such as the USA, U of M and IU flags. Would love to contact her for a possible commission piece.

    They were the work of the wife of the owner. The husband, wife, and one son were killed in an aircraft accident last fall. The wife's name was Trisha Brown.
