The room was lovely. Our second visit to that very room. The Inn Keeper was so helpful, patient and full of good history of the Inn. The amenities lovely. Gracious help for all our needs -- chocolate covered strawberries to the room after dinner and a long sit by the blazing fire we saw Chris, Inn Keeper, so carefully build for us. Also so very gracious about mailing the dress bag I left hanging in our closet -- and not charging us. Perfect stay, as I said, even with the fog. Wonderful atmosphere, autumn colors and sweeping mountain views, when fog allowed. When it didn't, there was a coziness and quiet drama in the atmosphere.
