Coral Caverns

Small cavern that is about 12 minutes away from the inn. It is a little tricky to find the entrance as it sits behind the small town of Bedford. You'll follow a dirt road to a small wooden building next to the entrance. It has been open to visitors for 80 years. Discovered during limestone mining operations, the cavern is family run and offers a small museum and gift shop. Tours are 30-45 minutes and once inside the cave, you'll see why it is named "coral" as there are many pieces of fossilized coral. Please call ahead for hours of operations and directions.
