We have been to the ARI several times over the years - most recently in January, 2013. It was my birthday and we were greeted by a small bottle of local wine and a lovely welcome card wishing me a happy birthday - a nice touch! We stayed over Christmas one year, and were welcomed with some divine local chocolates.
We were in Room 12 with a wood burning fireplace and a deck - two essentials for staying at the ARI for us. Our experience with ARI is that the service is top notch, the rooms comfy and clean, and the food is awesome. We were disappointed to find that their restaurant was closed for dinner during our visit.
We love the view, the fire, the solitude of ARI. They offer a generous breakfast which boasts a bakery item and choice of main dishes, along with juice and coffee - not to mention that incredible view!
Perhaps the place does need some TLC to freshen up the wear and tear of use and the abuse from inexperienced fire makers and fire tenders. But for the price, you truly get a great experience with a view that can't be beat.
