We arrived on a rather wet afternoon and well before the check in time per our email. They checked us in early, the room was clean and well maintained. Our visit was wonderful. My son had fun playing in the snow. The hotel and room are very clean. We will definitely stay again.

old, old and outdated. Now they charge a resort fee ( please )... they charge $ 329 per night or more but the price that I paid is not worth it. No USB’s in the rooms but again this place is old and the owners refuse to renovate the place.

What is the charge for a dog? Do your rooms have mini frigs and microwaves?
I don't recall the dog charge...$30? I think it was something like that. No microwave, but the breakfast is so great to have each morning...
