This is a beautiful little find tucked in the mountains. The rooms are very clean & charming with lots of games on hand for family fun. The grounds are particularly gorgeous with a lovely creek running along the back and walking trails. Across the road where the country store & Swinging Bridge restaurant are located are more beautiful grounds with an old grist mill and a trout pond where you can hand feed teams of huge trout (no fishing though). Be aware that the restaurant closes early on certain days and the next closest eatery is about 40 min away. There is not much out here by way of conveniences so be prepared with either food or planning to arrive when the restaurant is open, which is an excellent place to eat! There is a communal kitchen that offers sodas, cereal, cookies, coffee, tea & other snacks along with more games & toys for entertainment. I love this place!!
