On being Green: We limit the Inn's environmental impact as much as possible by composting. We recycle paper, plastic, glass and aluminum. We no longer offer bottled water but have a large glass water container in the den. Some of the soaps are now in large amenity bottles in the bathrooms. No worries, they are still the same wonderful products. We'll ask you to tell us if you wish to reuse your towels a second day to help conserve water or if you prefer to have them changed daily.
