at the Susanville chamber of commerce (and Parks and Recreation
gave us the 411 regarding the best B&B in town, (which we spared from turning into a super-fund site since we were so dirty), and the best restaurant in town... the Sage Hen; with "a new French chef, who cooked authentic French cuisine using local ingredients and has really turned the place into a destination," according to the clerk.
So, follow our logic: the promise of a good dinner. therefore wine. therefore no motor-bikey. no taxi cabby here either. therefore, we must find a motel within walking distance to the restaurant!
Makes sense to me.
