This wonderful place reminds me of the Dirty Dancing movie location where quaint spacious rooms and great service was provided in a relaxed setting. Loved the special touches and the history of the locale. Would definitely recommend this place for someone passing through for a night.

We appreciate your review. I'm glad you found our staff friendly and welcoming.
