Sarah, the innkeeper, and the smell of home-baked cookies greeted us at our arrival. Sarah gave us the tour of common rooms and our room. The home's interior is very tasteful and in keeping with the 100 year old craftsman style architecture. Our bathroom included spa toiletries and guest robes. "Happy Hour" from 5-6 included local wine, beer and cheese trays. It was a great way to meet and greet the other guests. The location of Lara's is across the street from a park on the river and is just blocks from many restaurants, bars and shopping. Breakfast portions were very large. On the first morning, Sarah bagged our scones and we had them as snacks on a Tumalo falls hike! The lemon chiffon pancakes on the second morning were decadent! We were there for a weekend and look forward to returning soon!
