          This is a great facility. Our original travel plans only had us staying here 1 night. We ended up staying four nights. Enjoyed the facility and the area. A really outstanding breakfast included with the room!

          There are no patio rooms near the fire pit, plus the fire pit burns Natural Gas.

          Yes, either in town at the Blue Gate Restaurant and during the summer season right at the Hotel. Ask about a package when you book your room!
