    Went to "Boogie at the Balch" event. Had dinner and drinks. Didn't stay the night, but toured the rooms. Loved the historic decor and some local artwork. Great hospitality and we are planning a weekend getaway there soon. Just love this place.

    Yes, we have good cell coverage for Verizon. Some of the smaller carriers do not reach out here. There is no data, however. We have free wifi throughout the building so when you get here you'll have all you need.
