    Hello: Which room(s) have a view of the redwoods on the nearby mtns? (The best views) Which have a view of the Eel River? (Is the water level low?) What time is check-in? (I've looked and looked for that on your website). Are (male) guests permitted to wear berets in the dining room? Do you have an AARP rate? Thank you for your assistance!
