Everything was brand new and recently remodeled with color schemes and patterns that held onto a time of the past. Rich dark wood paneling, heavy drapes over the windows. The bed was soft with with simple quilts. No detail was left untouched. We felt like we were staying in a brand new room right in the 1960s. Completely loved it!

Perfect stop. In January there were few places nearby open for a meal. We were traveling with our dog who was welcome here for a small charge.
