We had breakfast here and enjoyed the reasonably priced menu. There were more than sufficient options and they even had gluten free bread. Next time we are in town, I'm sure we will stop.

Had a wonderful stay during a snowstorm. Incredibly staff kept the Inn running with wonderful customer service. Bathrooms could use a tune up. Otherwise splendid!

Reliable and friendly over the decades. We were there with a large group over reunion weekend. A good time was had by all.
