Excellent period restored 1880s hotel. Fine breakfast. Good restaurant too. Clayton is a gem of a town. Don't miss the Herzstein Museum.

We enjoyed this place because they made you feel right at home. The server was awesome, and the food was very tasty. The Grilled Chicken Breast was awesome, and the Pineapple Salmon was incredible. Will definitely stop again when passing through the area. Thank you...More
