We are from this area and were looking for a place to celebrate our anniversary. This was our first stay in a B&B. Two nights in the Squirrel's Nest was just the trick. Inez makes you feel at home instantly and her cooking is homey and delicious. The view is spectacular, especially if you like bald eagle watching. Woke up to snow one morning and it was such a beautiful sight outside the wall of windows. We highly recommend this to anyone wishing to relax. Thanks Inez!!
