The Story Inn is cooperating with Valley Branch Retreat (about six miles away from Story) to provide you the best of both worlds: an exciting chance to try the state's longest zip lines, and then sip the state's finest wines. The former is designed to get the adrenaline rushing, the latter to take you back (gently) to earth. You may book these packages (summarized below) by calling (812) 988-7750.
