The Inn went through a tough patch between Don and Mary, the original owners and the new owners, Rich and Gwenn. "Regulars" were appalled in the interim, but rest assured that Rich and Gwenn have taken the Inn back to the philosophy, hospitality and level of service provided by Don and Mary, and perhaps a bit beyond.
If you are looking for a low key place to relax for a few days, and do as little or as much as you want, this is the place. We tend to hike in the morning, and swim in the afternoon (or at least doze by the pool), but could be equally happy never leaving the property.
All comforts are anticipated and provided, from the comfortable chairs outside each room on the "veranda" to the private patios on the other side of each room, the thick towels (incuding pool towels), tour books, etc. Also, the soundproofing is quite effective, so the advent of TVs in the rooms (they arrived somewhere in the last five years or so) are not intrusive.
Be warned that if you intend to have dinner at Carlee's, reservations are now virtually necessary for dinner many nights.
