My boyfriend and I were looking for a last minute weekend getaway to celebrate my passing the nursing boards. It was meant to be when we came across 5 star reviews for T&R Inn on Trip Advisor which had room availability on such short notice. We were lucky that the South Cottage Room (with jacuzzi) was available. While making reservations, my boyfriend mentioned to Ric, the owner, about our reason for celebration and all weekend I've received words of congratulations from everyone, even from the staff at the nearby Swiss Valley Ski Resort.
Ric and Toy are wonderful hosts. Toy is an excellent cook. She cooked breakfast for both mornings of our stay. They work hard at making sure you enjoy your stay. As the other reviews have said, Ric really does take his time getting you prepared while getting fitted for ski gear and gives good deals on rentals. This was our first time skiing ever and we felt we were in good hands. Kenny was our ski instructor and he was so good!!! He was patient, encouraging, and very friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our day at Swiss Valley.
As for the room, the bed was so comfy and warm. The room is very clean and spacious. There's a refrigerator, coffee maker, and luckily a wine opener since we brought wine and didn't have anything to open it with. They provide you with soap and shampoo in the room. And the jacuzzi was comfy for the two of us (he's 5'11", I'm 5').
(Also we highly recommend Jack's Family Pizzeria down the street. Delicious food and Alyssa who works there is a sweetheart.)
Thankfully we don't live too far away, we would love to return for ski trip number 2!!!
