Our two night stay at Dripping Springs in the Pine Canopy Room was everything we wanted it to be. A beautiful view of the river from our cozy back deck was a perfect spot to have a morning cup of coffee and read a good book. We especially enjoyed our early morning visit of an elk that was just looking for her breakfast too. The wonderful breakfast that is included when you stay in the cottages was served in the main house at a long farm table with the other guests. Janey, the chief cook of the husband/wife ownership of the lodge is a fantastic cook and offered up big platters of eggs, potatoes, sausage and zucchini pancakes! And our breakfast entertainment was provided by John, a master storyteller. He also hosted the bonfire down by the river the night before and kept all of us enthralled with his stories. Oliver and Janey were a wealth of information as to where the good places were to eat, and the good sites to visit. If you want a quiet, peaceful place just a short distance from town this is the place to be.
