I've done a lot of traveling over the past 30 years, but I can't recall a more satisfying and memorable experience. The place is neat as a pin, cozy and quaint, but at the same time modern and up-to-date. Though the owner/manager wasn't there to greet us immediately upon our arrival, the family dog served as a friendly stand-in. After a short wait we received a call from the owner -- who was out on an errand -- informing us that our room was ready and to just let ourselves in. After a short drive downtown for dinner, we settled in to a pleasant evening in front of the gas fireplace enjoying a movie and several rounds of "Sorry," one of several complementary games stacked on a table in the lobby. A generous selection of DVDs and a few books were also available.
The next morning, we were well rested for our trip up Beech Mountain for a day of skiing. Our only regret was that we weren't able to stay another night...that huge jacuzzi tub sure would have felt good on our sore and tired muscles!
Truly a wonderful experience all around. Kudos to Phil and Lori for this beautiful little gem in the mountains.
