The location is great, quite close to the entrance to JT park. Arriving was a very welcoming experience. The main house is lovely and a sight for sore eyes after trekking there. The grounds are a little desert shangri-la. The B&B rooms were very small but pristinely clean, which I really appreciate. The area is very quiet, but the amount of noise you experience may be dependent upon your neighbors staying at the B&B with you. If we stay there again we might pay a bit more and opt for one of the stand-alone houses. My only real complaint was that the bed was much too hard for me and my spouse, and we didn't sleep well. If you enjoy hard beds with noisy bedsprings it won't be a problem but otherwise you may want to bring a pad. I personally don't care much about breakfasts, in fact I prefer not to have to be at breakfast at a certain time, but it was a charming experience to have a nice meal made for us and meet new people at table. The innkeeper is now the president of the JT Chamber of Commerce so she's a good source of information on local activities. Cell phone reception is practically non-existent, but they do have Wi-Fi. It would be nice if they added a hot tub, as the only amenities are the rooms, and the shower is a tight fit. JT is a rustic area but if you want something cozy and away from the highway, this Inn is a good choice.
