This is a lovely, isolated (at least through the eyes of a city couple) property. Perched high on a mountainside, but 1200 vertical feet and two of trail miles below the TOP of the ridge (you get to climb to the top if you have time to spare -- we did, and it was worth it), there are spectacular views from the porch or hot tub. The rooms are large and well-outfitted; I'm far from a toiletry snob but what was left for us was really nice. Beds, chairs, etc -- great. The common areas are pleasant, with many books and magazines available. A very dark sky meant lots of stars. Don't plan on hopping into town for meals; plan on having all your meals at the Inn if you are staying on the mountain. A refrigerator is available as is as i recall a microwave (check with the innkeepers).
