My wife found this property and it was perfect for traveling to all the various sites she wanted to visit. Backbone Rock Park was our first stop. Neat park, great trails, and a waterfall which at the right time of year would be super if the run off was heavy. Went up to the peaks to see the leaves and when the sun was shining on them they were beautiful. It also snowed up there which made for some super pictures & views, but it was cold for sure. It is very close to all the various sites in downtown that are must sees. The Martha Washington Hotel is really well worth a walk though. The Barter Theater was super and a fun night. The Olive Oil Company is an absolute must! Great oils from all over the world an excellent group of ladies that were very funny & helpful.
The entire staff at the hotel was very friendly and helpful. Mr. Owen was a true gentleman and great to chat with. The breakfast ladies kept all the items well stocked and fresh and also helped answer a lot of questions on where to go for whatever. The room was super with plenty of room and the housekeeping staff did a great job keeping it super clean.
I would highly recommend this property in particular if you want to bring your pet. They treat them as well as they treat you and that is important.
The property's GM I hope will read this review and give the entire staff a BIG WELL DONE!
