I wish I could say something nice about this place, the people who run it are generally friendly, and the old woman who owns it is a true BB type...she wants to get to know you and chat etc...i suppose that would be charming if you were interested in that kind of interaction. Staff isn't always onsite, which is kind of unprofessional. Hopefully you don't have the same experience I did, which was negotiating a certain rate, then when I arrived the owner insisted I pay in cash...upfront...for the whole stay....then when my plans changed and I left one night early....she refused to refund me, saying there should be a penalty charge. Hmmm...I gave her a day notice and left way before check out time so the room would be free to clean and prepare before a new person could stay there. I also think it's strange that she was so upset about the "potential business lost" because when I called to book the room she swore there were barely any rooms available, ok and the day I left she informed me my room will be occupied that night. Sounds like a rip off to me. Otherwise the property is fine. It's close to busses if you want to grab a bus to go skiing, you can walk into town so the location is good. The room was pretty disappointing for the rate, old and modest. I wouldn't recommend this property to anyone.
