The kitchen is dream-worthy. From the detailed tile work, industrial shelving design and dark cabinets – you would be absolutely content staying in and enjoying your meals from the comfort of the Wander Inn. In fact that is exactly what we did. The girls and I enjoyed the perfect kind of night – taco night, and had everything we needed with the amenities provided in the kitchen.
The living space is also stunning. Cozy living chairs and stunning white couch makes for the best place to drink your margaritas and wine. Or head outside to enjoy the front porch equipped with rocking chairs. Afterwards, head to backyard to enjoy an extremely cozy fire pit. Plus, the Wander Inn comes equipped with all that you need to make delicious s’mores.
And after you enjoy all that there is, and then rest so comfortably, and wake up feeling SO refreshed, enjoy your coffee with a view thanks to the mini-coffee maker (bring k-cups) and the French press.
