The fact that you think you're about to drive off a mountain trying to find this place, makes one hope that it's worth the effort...and it is.
This beautiful inn clings to the side of a mountain and offers views over three states.
My room was large yet cozy, with a very efficient gas fire heater.
There's a huge bed, sofa, table and chairs, large bathroom and deck out the front.
Outside the room there is a communal lounge area with a coffee maker and fridge, tv, books and games.
The owners are lovely and nothing is too much trouble.
I had a wonderfully restorative weekend stay here and I drove down into to Mentone for dinner one night, happy to return safely as it had started to snow.
This is a destination hotel, you come here to be here and I recommend it for a writer's retreat, romantic weekend or just to get away from the kids and sleep for two days!
There are things to do around here, but I think you should come here to BE here. You won't regret it.
