We stayed in one of the cabins and stopped in for a drink before dinner. Bartender was nice and helpful, great wine selection by the bottle, more limited by the glass if you only want a glass or two. Didn't have dinner but menu looked good.

We have been here for dinner several times and had a wonderful meal. We recently went for breakfast and again had great food but that was overshadowed by the terrible service. The restaurant was not all that busy but it took us an hour and a half to eat. We would ask multiple times for coffee refills and then needed... More

This is a lovely place with a lot of history. The town itself is very quaint and charming. We stopped here while we were out Jeeping on a Saturday afternoon. If you choose to eat here be prepared to bring quite a bit of money. We opted to eat in the bar area below the main restaurant where they served... More

We stopped by for Sunday brunch. They were out of the breaded tenderloin sandwich...so my wife opted for the house salad...nothing special. I had the pancakes...very tasty. Small, cozy place...rustic location and furnishings. Frequented by motorcycle enthusiasts...and folks checking out out-of-the-way places.

The Story Inn Restaurant is legend in this area. Locally sourced, farm-to-table food in a rustic setting. I was eager to try it. Everything started well until I asked about the cheeses on the 1st Course cheese plate. The server did not know what the cheeses were (and did not offer to find out) ... only that they were "potent",... More

They grow their own fruits and veggies and use all local products. Cooks, bartenders and wait staff are all very good. I really love this place. It is special!
