Liked: The main shared lounge area has a fabulous feel about it, plenty of space, but also intimate. It had a great fire going, we enjoyed curling up with a book. Free pool and table soccer. The kitchen is excellent with everything you need. Had a private room - 1 double, 2 bunks - very spacious, and 2 heaters thoughtfully on when we arrived. Fantastic customer service. Great board games. Lots of chalk boards with interesting info. Great location, can walk out the door into town. And fabulously KID-friendly! :-)

Disliked: Would have liked the ability to swipe your card for security to enter the building from outside. Currently anyone could walk in off the street during daytime hours. And no hot water on the 2nd night!
