Overall this Inn has the potentiel to be a great place--the location is beautiful, the food excellent and the Skiing was fantastic--a great family vacation. We were extremely unimpressed however with the manager/innkeeper running the place. The young waman in charge barely spoke to guests and seemed to entertain more personal friends than guests at the hotel. She seemed annoyed when asked anything. I overheard her complain numerous times about her job and made several complaints about the company she worked for--apparently they make her work too much. This was surprising to us as we felt service was lacking in many respects-- there was rarely any management around to ask questions, the hot tub was not working properly yet no one seemed to know how to fix it, or care that it was broken. Also, the bar seemed to have no fixed hours--we were told they were closing as business was slow--apparently our presence was not enough to merit paying the bartender. It was like staying in an abandoned Inn and we felt like we were pretty much on our own. The kitchen staff was very friendly and the food was great--We would return again but hope the manager who does not like her job moves on before we return...
