Great rooms, comfortable beds, clean, great full breakfast included. Only thing possible negative about the room was there was no air conditioning, but we were here the end of June and were using heat, not air conditioning, anyway.

The trail we took is also a popular route up to Mirror Lake and then beyond to Lake Agnes and the Tea House. As a result there is a steady stream of hikers. We started around 8:30 and it took us about an hour to travel the 2.5 kilometers up ...
... to the Mirror lake (not really mirroring anything) and then to another lake with waterfall and a wooden tea-house. This used to be a favorite place for a ride with a horse and afternoon tea for ladies with class. It was definitely worth it, but maybe it cost us a little bit of strenght before our next ...
