We prefer B&B’s on all our travels and the Purple Sage Inn rates with the best we’ve stayed in. It’s Americana at its finest. Kathy and Tory and their son Corey are wonderful hosts and so down to earth. We stayed there two nights (May 13th & 14th). When we arrived Kathy and Tory were temporarily away from the property so we met Corbin on the front porch doing his math homework (Hope that doesn’t embarrass you Corbin). He was so polite and took us to our room (Zane Grey Room) and then gave us a tour of the property. The home was decorated beautifully with a diverse array of antiques and small items they had uncovered on the property and the lot next door they also owned. The property had incredible landscaping to include an amazing collection of antique farm equipment as lawn art in the huge back yard. That may seem odd but it was just “cool” to see. They maintain a huge garden where they grow vegetables for meals and Corbin sells to locals and tourists during the summer. There is a washer and dryer for guest’s use and the large refrigerator is stocked with a wide assortment of beverages.
Kathy and Tory just made you feel so at home from the outset and went out of their way to accommodate our needs. They have a huge assortment of guide and photo books of all the local sights and provided great recommendations on places to go and see. Tory recommended “The Rocking V” (a 3 minute walk from the Purple Sage) and “Ecobars”. He called the Rocking V and made reservations for us, a must, as it was crowded and the food exceptional. We were going on an early morning guided hike and they were in the kitchen earlier than ususal preparing a breakfast of fresh fruit, pastry and coffee just for us. That evening they had some friends over on the back patio and we were invited to join them for wine. We spent several hours just laughing and talking and my wife and I both commented we just felt like part of their family. The next morning we had the full breakfast and it was about as good as it gets. We highly recommend everyone stay there.
P.S. Corbin, good luck on attaining your Eagle in scouting.
