The food here is cooked by the owners so a lot of care clearly goes into it. They even served vegetables from their own garden in their salads! They bake their own bread and serve great VT brews. One patron said she ate their every night for a week straight because it was so good. I believe it. Our meals... More

Family of 4 . Mom and dad wanted a real meal. Worked for all. Tuna was excellent. Eat and Watch the sun set over the mountains.....without the ski resort branded vibe.

The views were great, but everything else left us wanting. The food was not anything special. Certainly not good enough to justify the prices.
