Well behaved, supervised children are welcome. We have a large selection of games and other distractions to keep them busy. We do ask that you let us know in advance if you plan on bringing young ones with you. The Magnolia room is the best choice for a family room. It has a King Bed and a matching twin with a hidden trundle bed. We charge $25 per night for each additional guest. Please note, unsupervised children will be given a cookie and a free kitten.
