Cave and log cabin-themed decor makes each room uniquely fun. Grownups will appreciate the king- and queen-sized beds, separate sleeping quarters for kids, wet bar, refrigerator, microwave and more.

“While analytical intellect may well be called the most precious fruit of the Modern Age, it must not be allowed to rule supreme in matters of cognition. If science is to bring happiness and real progress to the world, it needs the warmth of man’s heart just as much as the cold inquisitiveness of his brain.”
― Franz Winkler
