I have been to Cottonwood many times, but never stayed there. We decided on a weekend getaway with a group of friends to go kayaking and wine tasting and we chose The Tavern Hotel as our home base. With only 10 rooms and a cottage, we took up half the hotel! It was absolutely beautiful and quiet and extremely clean. The rooms are just as they look in the pictures on the website, I wish I could move the bathroom to my house! My only complaint is very small - the vessel sinks are a bit high - I am only 5'3" and I had to stand on my tiptoes to wash my face and got myself a bit wet doing so. But it didn't ruin our stay in the least bit. The beds and pillows were very comfortable, I love the wood floors and the closet area was very convenient. The location is great - right in the middle of everything, but yet very quiet. We did the "Sip and Stay" package, which includes a $50 gift card to a restaurant that is owned by the same company that owns the hotel (we chose Nic's), 2 free continental breakfasts at a choice of 2 places (or $5 towards breakfast per person instead) and 3 free wine tastings - and you can add on an extra night, which we did. Very well worth the money. I would definitely stay here again - a good time was had by all.
One tip - you check in at the bar inside the Tavern Grille - it's not open until 11:00 a.m.
