Guests enjoy countless options for entertainment: sports – hiking, biking, birding, skiing, golf (to name a few…), history, the arts and local culture, shopping, and even amusement parks. Dining opportunities nearby abound and range from “the greatest burger” to “5-star” venison.  However, Inn guests often decided to stop running for a day or two … and stroll or hike. To listen to nature. To visit with loved ones. To watch the fire dance. To read. To doze. To watch the bread rise in anticipation of its ceremony in the oven.
