If you my to step out of your box...this is a great place to do just that! From the moment you read the front door- yes, it looks like a window- to the fairytale stairs that fringe you to your room, this hotel had the charm of a 13th century Abbey with the luxuries of modern day. Although you won't find many amenities in the hotel, the town and people are both friendly and charming, leaving you wanting to stay another day.

... only 14) they were very competitive and had a shot at goals after the final siren for the win. They unfortunately missed and came away with a 2 point loss. Hopefully the good effort is a sign of things to come as finals approaches.
