Each guest room draws on inspiration from the past, heralding the Inn’s remarkable history. Rooms are luxuriously appointed with designs that tell the story of Theron Ink, the Inn’s original owner, Harriet, his wife, and Helios, the name of the working ranch Ink established. The Elvis Room draws its name from Elvis Presley who made the Inn his home during the filming of “Wild in the Country” in 1960.
