You know, we have driven past this place for years, and so yesterday evening I decided to head on in and see what they had to offer. We were not disappointed. While we did not try the restaurant, which we have heard good things about, the rest of the property is certainly clean, tidy, and safe. The staff were all friendly, welcoming and anxious to make sure we had a good stay. We left our bikes outside with no worries at all. Our room was clean, quiet and well-appointed. I especially liked the Keurig coffee maker in the morning. The breakfast is just a little better than most, due to the better than normal selection and to the friendliness of the staff. Pictures and sculptures of bears abound everywhere (hey, check the name of the place...) so if you have a bear phobia, keep your eyes closed! This was a very enjoyable stay and we will happily return.
