Make a Reservation because they book up fast. Also arrive early because parking is a Hassel. I did enjoy the tour ($17) and the festival of lights were Pretty. The Hotel itself is Beautiful. Enjoyed hearing about all the Presidents that stayed here.

Was our 7th trip always enjoyable the fireworks this year were amazing. Food is always good at each of the resturants. The buffet has a great assortment of food but the cost is a little high otherwise I recommend it.

We did a 75min tour on a whim and really enjoyed the history of the Inn. We were lucky to have the tour guide to just the two of us. Highly recommend the tour and a stop.
