A somewhat unusual place, even among the wide range of quirky family-run establishments to be found all over small town America.
Welcome a little brusque and hurried, in contrast to what others have found. Room well furnished and comfortable, but very gloomy and with no fridge which is a handy thing to have if you are travelling and if you like an ice cold gin and tonic. A very welcome pool, with towels provided, was ideal after a hot day in the National Park. The owners seem to patrol the place in either a menacing or friendly way, depending on your take. Breakfast taken in a pleasant room, presided over by a charming elderly lady. There is a huge selection of homemade cakes etc. all as fresh as a daisy, but maybe a bit sweet to start the day for European tastes.
Many people will understand what I mean when I say this place has the hint, just a hint of Fawlty Towers about it. Don’t let that put you off, it’s a gem and well different to all the bland offerings elsewhere. Before you leave the area, visit Jamestown and its railway museum.
