Three Sisters Inn
1035 Ames (corner of 11th and Highway 56)
This restored turn-of-the-century Victorian home was once the residence of the three Ripley sisters: Della Rose, Melissa and Edith. Rooms throughout the Inn are decorated in lavish period antiques and collectibles. The Inn hosts weddings, reunions, business retreats and other special occasion events. Reservations are encouraged.
The Lodge (motel and RV Park)
This motel features a classic lodge look. There are 16 guestrooms available with several furnished in a rustic cabin style. Walking into the lobby is like stepping into a cozy hunting lodge, complete with stone fireplace and trophy mounts of elk, caribou, deer, bobcats, pheasants, and an 8-foot bear. Guests can snuggle by the fireplace with drinks from the lounge. The banquet room can accommodate parties or meetings for up to 75 people. Look for live music or other entertainment on the weekend. Reservations are encouraged but not required.
