We were headed to the Hotel, but saw the Artisan Center as we drove in. Quite large with a lot of very unique and interesting pieces for sale. There is also a cafe there if you can time it for a snack.

This little town is working hard to create an artists town - and has created a very pleasant area and group of small shops and work shops to visit. Really nice arts and crafts ranging from the $10 stone necklace to the $2000 woven rug....More

Was led to believe from flyers that place was larger. Nice stuff but takes very little time to view.

There are no outside exhibits. It's all indoors. Only service animals allowed. We left our dog in the car listening to his favorite music with the a/c on so he would comfortable. Best to leave a note inside the window too.

It's a trap. Admission is free but the temptation to buy the art is hard to resist. The art is unique and fairly priced. Food and drink also fairly priced. Great place to stretch your legs.
