We appreciate the review! Our facilities are very scenic, but we think that only adds to the charm. The BLT is one of our favorites, but be sure to come back and explore our fresh, uniquely delicious menu.

Old Inn and Lodge from the early 19 hundreds. We had a group of eight, no problem with seating. Sandwiches very good. Beer 🍺 is locally brewed. Must see. Still used as a Lodge. Large room for events.

We camped here over labor day weekend. Even though the reservation was last minute and for a primitive site, the campsite we stayed at was roomy, quiet, and overall great. The hosts were out of their way helpful!
