It's a short walk into town and to the Crescent Hotel (if you don't mind it being uphill). The breakfast is adequate and I noted that they've stopped including Friday evening dinners. When the weather cooperates, it's very pleasant to sit on the porch in the evening. From the back of the wrap-around porch you can see the Christ of the Ozarks. The house was built in 1880, so the floors aren't particularly level. The rooms are all different, and while not large by today's standards, they are adequate for a short stay. I was surprised at how quiet the rooms are. We came in one night and there was a fairly large crowd of people gathered in one of the common areas near the door to our room. Once we shut the door, we never heard them. Also there was a couple with small children in the suite next to our room, and I could not hear them, either.
