This hotel is geared to those going up or coming down out of the mountains. The breakfast is awesome and the hosts are comfortable with outdoorsy types! Not a fancy fru-fru hotel - but it is really a great little hotel! The cabins are a plus!

I am in the area often and have not stayed there... First, do any of the rooms have kitchen? do any have access to firepits or outdoor firelplaces? Or indoor fireplace or woodburing stoves. WE are often there in the colder months! :-)
The Paiute Suite has a full kitchen. All of the cabins/rooms have heaters. Cabin #6 has an outdoor fire pit.
