I spent 2 nights at OEI with my husband this past weekend. Our room was above and beyond what we could have ever asked for. We had a cottage room. It included a fireplace, a spa bathroom with a jetted tub and shower, heated floors,...More

Two hotels in town allow dogs. Very nice. Old Edwards owns one of them. Name is something Main. The other one has a dog as the logo--sorry, can't remember the name.
