If you love hiking and the mountains, this is the perfect spot. The National Park trails are right next to the inn, plus nature trails on site, so you can have a day of hiking and enjoy wonderful meals and a beautiful setting at 5000 feet high. It is very unique. The atmosphere is laid back, staff was great and the Chef was great - we really enjoyed the food. They thought of everything to make the stay enjoyable.
