We visited on a sleepy day in September with seemingly very few other guests and the staff was super courteous and accommodating. Food was great and service was really personable. We will definitely be stopping by next time we are in the area.

Great overall with the exception of not a ADA compliant property, no elevator or handicap parking. As this was an off season stay at a ski resort, I should have read all the fine print when booking. That said staff was friendly and room was great, be sure to take the lift to the

I've only stayed there during ski season and both times at the end of March. Both times it was exceptionally quiet and a joy to stay in. This is a quaint boutique hotel with a quality unlike any other. I can't comment on the specific rooms you mentioned. However, staying further away from the staircase would be more desirable.

"Should stairs offer too much difficulty for you, book early to try for a first floor room. Wi-Fi, but no elevator."
"If you need an elevator you have too much stuff!"
"Broken lamps, few utensils. Spa a joke"
"No elevator and all rooms are upstairs. The beds and pillows are extremely comfortable, and there is a window unit for AC."
"If physical issues plague you, lack of elevator makes second floor difficult."
