I came across this place quite by accident and am I ever so glad I did! I was greeted by security staff that was polite and respectful and the staff at the hotel was ever so gracious. Check in was pleasant and I was in awe of the history of the place. The original Maples gentleman who built the hotel in the late 30's has passed on but you can see the love his grandchildren have for the place. The fact that the original "Log Cabin" of the 30's still stands for people to admire and enjoy is just beyond words. Yes, it has been updated and added on to over the years, but this man's dream of a hotel is there for us to enjoy. The architect who designed the additions transformed it into a beautiful Inn. I found this place to be one of the best, if not The Best piece of history I have ever had the pleasure of seeing and admiring. I am aware that many updates are in store for this Beautiful piece of history, I can only hope they retain the same atmosphere of elegance than it has held for so many years. The place is spotless, towels and linen are luxurious and the staff knows you by name. I slept better than I have in such a long time, the bedding is out of this world. New flat screen tv but real maple wood furniture, not the metal framed beds tied to the walls that you see in the modern hotels. I will most definitely return and I hope to see the character of this historical landmark retained for future generations to admire. The rose garden is still on the grounds in memory of a truly remarkable man. While there I had the pleasure of seeing his young great grand daughter strolling through the rose garden. It is truly a gem amidst the glitter.
