The cozy sitting room has a TV and a gas fireplace. The pub, just for guests, has a selection of beer and wine available for purchase. During the warmer months, the favorite place of many guests is to sit on the back deck taking in the views while listening to the loon calls and perhaps watching a heron fishing for dinner.
