This place should be a model for a small boutique style Hotel/Motel, I seriously wanted to bottle everything from the décor to the atmosphere and bring it home with me. The staff were some of the best I've ever experienced, mad props to Kevin (who recently moved to the area from our homestate of MA) and Satchel (spell?) for going out of their way to recommend places to eat, hike and explore. They were friendly, approachable and chipper which can sometimes be rare at hotels.
The rooms themselves were hip, decorated in an outdoorsy vibe all while maintaining class and top notch amenities. Yes you can hear the room above or people walking down the halls but thats an experience. 1 of our rooms had an amazing balcony with Adirondack chairs which we loved. The smores at night are a must (as is the rooftop hot tub) and my only complaint is the breakfast foods go fast so you have to time your visit just right so you can catch the baker bringing in homemade and hot pecan rolls which were out of this world.
A+ hotel with an A+ staff, I'm very excited their expanding and opening up a restaurant and beer garden by August.
