We have been travelling for over 3 weeks and it was such a surprise to see something different on a menu. The perogies were very good. It was such a cute place to stay and very clean.

Ok, I typically NEVER write reviews, but this place is a culinary gem. The rooms were clean and up to date and offered at a great price. Seriously, the food is superb and worth the stop even if you don't plan to stay the night.
