We just spent one night at this gem of a hotel. Nicely appointed room, super comfortable beds and bedding and very, very clean. We were greeted by their friendly and helpful staff when we checked in. We will stay here again and would absolutely recommend the Balanced Rock to our

Our room had a mini fridge and microwave. No extra charge. Re animals: Don't know, I think you would need to call.

"rooms 19 & 20 enter a separate door into a hall then to own doors a good choice for family"
"No elevator so if stairs are a problem for you be sure to specify ground floor."
"Top floor (2) worked for us"
"First floor was fine. Easy access to car."
"Ask for a quiet one, closer to the office; there might be less traffic noise there."
