Great place to spend a weekend with mixed aged children and grandson. We got there early and asked to leave our car in the lot. We were told our room was ready if we’d like to check in! The front desk was friendly and accommodating (DD forgot a tooth brush). The housekeeping

MofromMass, Thank you for your review. Our Dinner theaters are a great way to get together with friends and have some laughs. I apologize for the slow service in the Tavern, we did have some call outs on this day and had to make adjustments and we should have done better for all of our guest that night. The main thing to us is that our guest enjoy themselves while here at the Inn and it seemed like you made that happen. I do hope you'll join us again. - Joe

Ate there any facilities for sun bathing?
There is a small patio off the pool area. All of the pool is indoors. So if you don’t want to be right by the pool, you should be good.
