We stayed at the Swiss Chalet Inn (old, out dated hotel with big rooms, no phones, no internet connection but decent ok for the price) Decided to grab a bit since we were just coming in and starving. Waited for almost 2 hours for food,...More

Ken Berry owns and runs the restaurant and has a real talent for hospitality. His warmth and kindness permeate the place, along with the enormous, hand-made fire that roars during winter and Ken even sings to us sometimes! He makes everyone feel welcome, and waits...More
