My husband and I spent two days recently at the Purple Mountain Lodge B&B while mtn biking in the area. Loved the relaxing atmosphere and very homey feeling of the B&B. Being able to sleep with the windows wide open and having the cool mountain air lull you to sleep was wonderful.
Chris Haver the owner/proprietor was very helpful with information on biking routes and local establishments to dine at in town. Very "green" in being able to walk everywhere from the B&B to the town area.
Chris is an excellent cook and his breakfast selections were impeccable! Especially enjoyed his blue cornmeal blueberry pancakes. Yummy, yummy. The parfait glasses with fresh fruit and yogurt were very nice touches.
Those travellers that love dogs will become fast friends with Chris' trusty home companions Makayla and Zoe.
