“This place has delicious gourmet food, probably the best on the mountain, a wine list and delicious deserts. The lamb is fantastic. They have duck fat fries that are delicious. Not much on the menu for younger kids unless they have great taste and welcome more adult fare. Fine dining within half a mile from cabin.”
