Although it's a little tricky to find, the journey is well worth the effort. A Mountain View Retreat is a cozy B&B -- just 3 bedrooms arranged around a comfortable great room and kitchen/dining area. Our room -- the master -- was large, warm, very tastefully decorated. The attached BR was very well lit and, thankfully, had it's own temp control (important on a chilly morning). The bed was very, very comfortable and the linens were first-rate. But all that aside, the real gem of this place is the owner, Patricia Heller. She is extremely gracious, warm, friendly and an excellent cook! PH was eager to help with information about the surrounding area and very helpful with securing last minute dinner reservations on a very busy fall weekend.
