Though the rooms decor are a rustic look with charm the food is Italian. The sitting area has a large working fireplace which is a wonderful place to have a pre dinner drink. It is casual and lends itself to talking to those sitting nearby. Soon people are sharing their favoirte ski sloops and why they like them. Food is tasty though a tad pricey for the portions served. Those staying at the inn seemed to like it, we just dinned there. It is true that though when one arrives the place is empty and one is asked if one has reservations . we thought that perhaps a large group would be arriving but we had our entire dinner and it was still near empty..
