  • Every room was recently revamped, adding warm colors, maple furniture and locally produced art.

Such a great spot - kids loved it, dog loved it and my husband and I loved that we could sneak away for a cocktail and raw bar by the fire pit. They definitely cater to guests - even the 4-legged ones!
