This was our second visit to Top Notch Inn, and once again the facilities and staff were exceptional. Our room was clean and neat. The owners are very knowledgeable with the surrounding area and were easily accessible. Our labs are always welcome in their "pet rooms". There is a lot for everyone to do!

The accommodations are excellent as are the owners and desk personnel. They are very well in tune with all the area attractions, restaurants, and other information at their fingertips. The rooms are exceptionally clean and inviting with more...

Had a great long weekend at the Top Notch Inn. My husband and I stayed at the Moriah house, lots of of space to gather with family or friends. All the rooms were nicely decorated and looked brand new. Have to say I loved the kitchen the best. Location is great, close to mountain biking trails, shops and restaurants.

Dear Kuke, Thanks for letting us know of these issues since this is the first we've heard of them. We don't recall any other complaints about the cable, or hot water not being hot enough. All of our rooms are smoke free, but the smoke odor in the room could be from smokers walking by while the window was open....
