My husband and I came here for our 1st wedding anniversary. We both had a great time! We stayed in the Swiss Chalet... a room with a beautiful rock wall, king-size lodge-pole pine bed and gas fireplace. We were very happy with the service... Claudia was nice, friendly and a great cook.
We stayed two nights. The first night there were two other couples at the inn, but they were so quiet we felt like we had the place to ourselves. Our first breakfast was buffet-style with scrambled eggs, hashbrown patties, bacon, biscuits and gravy, toast, lemon coffee cake, yogurt, fresh fruit, granola and a variety of boxed cereals. There was hot tea, coffee, orange juice, grapefruit juice, and I think grape juice.
The second night we actually DID have the place to ourselves. So for breakfast the next morning Claudia made fluffy omlets with ham and tomatoes, sausage links and toast. -Complete with green chili if we wanted it. It wasn't "made to order", but she asked us when we first got there if we had any dietary restrictions and we said no. It was very good and more than we could eat.
Since we had the place to ourselves the second night, and the other rooms were all open so we could see them, we poked around just a bit to figure out if next time we come we'd like the same room or a different one. In addition to our room (the Swiss Chalet), I really liked the Tea Room (beautiful and fairly spacious), the Hacienda (looked very comfy) and the Lodge. The Lodge looked like it had another small room with a futon for extra people. Our room also had a futon, but not a separate room. The room I thought I'd like more than I did was the Lookout. The bedroom area is pretty tiny and since it's windows all the way around, not too private... though you're high up enough, not sure anyone would see you anyway. It also seemed like it might get pretty toasty in the summer.
We saw a couple of deer in the driveway one evening, and my husband saw a bear the following morning.
We didn't see (or hear that we know of) any ghosts. Never felt a "creepy energy" or anything like that as some have said.
Likes - we really liked Claudia, the owner. Even though our card had already been charged, she still honored our AAA discount by cutting us a check for the difference. She's also friendly and made us feel comfortable. We loved all the privacy we got... but that was also largely due to it being a quiet couple of days. The hot tub. The view. It was also nice to have a vanity in the bathroom. The tub is also antique, but it's also been fitted with new shower (and the shower head was big and clean). Loved the charm and personality of the place... it's not perfect but is pretty and has a lot of character. I also loved that they had the guide in each room with the history of the inn... it added to the charm. My favorite... the veranda. The view from the veranda is amazing and there are two very comfortable chaise lounges. You can also hear the chimes from the Shrine of the Sun.
Dislikes - I didn't like the sink in the bathroom too much. It's antique - so, you've got hot water on one side, cold water on the other... separate taps. Also, the faucets don't come out very far so it's hard to get your hands under the water to wash soap off. The floors are creaky, and the bathroom door squeaky.
