We stayed at the Primrose Inn for two nights. Brendan was a super host - he served us delicious food all weekend (breakfast and snacks), he was so knowledgeable on where to hike and where to park, and he came through in making us a wonderful dinner reservation outside (COVID friendly). Everything was done in the spirit of "the customer is king." We will definitely return:)
