Taps Galore at Tova’s Tavern

beer_taps
Beer enthusiasts are beginning to notice the not so hidden gem down at Tova’s Tavern. With the addition of our new tap system and an emphasis on quality microbrews, the beer selection is quickly becoming a major attraction in the restaurant. Our staff has doubled down on finding the perfect mix to tickle your fancy and provide a unique tasting experience. Guests are invited to sample the different brews to help determine the perfect choice for their particular tastes.

Tova’s Tavern has been serving thirsty guests for decades and with the beer revolution sweeping the country some upgrades to the selection were an obvious fit. Beyond the enhanced offering at the bar, the resort has also embraced the new beer culture by hosting the annual A Brew with a View brewfest. The festival brings together a variety of regional microbrews from around New England as well as like-minded fans of craft beer. The brewfest offers a unique opportunity to research new ideas for the bar and get feedback from guests attending the event. It is really a win-win for our “research” team.

With all the attention given to our beer selection, it’s no wonder Tova’s has been getting some extra attention these days. Just remember, if you plan a visit, don’t forget to pet the stuffed husky on the last bar stool. The tradition is guaranteed to bring good luck for years to come.

Upgrade to Resort Bedding

Quality, comfort and cleanliness are three key attributes to an enjoyable hospitality experience. This statement is particularly true when it comes to bedding and linens. In an effort to further upgrade the guest experience at Steele Hill, management made a decision to roll out the Zephyr Bedding Package to all king size beds at the resort. Over the course of the summer and into the fall, dreams of soft linens and fluffy, white duvets became a reality.

What is the Zephyr Package you ask? Imagine a large king bed wrapped in high thread count sheets and topped off with a comfortable duvet all in bright, ivory white. Premium pillows provide a comfort-centric headpiece with an accent of color adorning the foot in the form of the bed scarf. Are we feeling cozy yet? According to the recent feedback, our guests sure are.

The upgraded bedding has been a major hit and it is merely one of the many steps the resort has taken over the last few years to continue to boost the hospitality experience. With the new year shortly upon us, many additional projects are on their way. In the meantime, if you are looking to experience things for yourself, reserve a room with a king bed and try out our new bedding.
