Pros: The accomadations were fine. New build, clean, pretty setting.
1. They charged us a cancellation fee when we cancelled more than 30 days before our arrival date.
2. 4pm check in time is too late. Then they charge you $25 ...

In addition to running water, they have a picnic table and a bike tune-up station. This is a great trailhead. The Casey's if just up the street to your right.

Hotel Frederick in Boonville

What a great old hotel! I can't believe the quality of this renovation. The building is very comfortable and up to date, but everything feels integrated and is consistent with the character of a century-old structure. There are so many nostalgic l...

This is definitely the hippest place in town. Great cocktails and fine food. I always look forward to the lounge after a long day of biking.
Bothwell: Look for breakfast elsewhere
