This was my third stay here, and as always I found it relaxing and convenient. I arrived as a wildfire burned in the mountains above the city. Two days before my arrival, the owners e-mailed everyone with a reservation to warn of the problems with air quality and ash. They waived cancellation fees, and offered a discount for guests who still planned to visit. That really just went above and beyond for something that was totally out of their control. There was a lot of ash falling for a couple of days, but it was all good -- I had my choice of restaurants because so many people cleared out of town. By the end of the weekend the smoke cleared and the sun returned. A lot of people did cancel for the weekend, but I think the owners' actions left a good impression.
