The O’Neil Robinson House (1821) and Dr. Moses Mason House (1813) offer more than a dozen period rooms and exhibit galleries where visitors can discover and explore the area’s varied past.  We check into our resort accommodations for the next two evenings.  This evening a delicious dinner is included at the resort.   Relax and enjoy your mountain surroundings.  (B,D)
