It's hard to say what the best part of this wonderful place is, but it includes:
Bruce and Wendi the owners and their hospitality extrodinaire
The smell of pine trees
The quiet comfortable (and newly done) rooms
The afternoon wine and cheese
The great hot tub
Wendi's breakfasts and desserts
And the occasionally real bear! (He visited the night before we arrived.)
We went for three nights and ended up treating ourselves to a 4th. The banner near the entry speaks of rest and relaxing and that it truely was.
If you ask early and he can, get Bruce to cook dinner for you. Otherwise they will help you find a variety of good local places and their menu and wine favorites at each.
You may be on your way to big trees, skiing, fishing or hiking, but don't miss Arnold. It's a fun little town with lots of wonderful people ready to help you have a great vacation!
(This is also an awesome place for a wedding or special occasion.)
