    Great Room but without amenities

    The room was wonderful. The restaurant was closed during our stay, and the breakfast was a basket placed outside the door. For the money, we expected more than a breakfast sandwich!

    "You Can't Go Home Again"

    A far cry from the experience of twenty years ago at this same location. Our room was not even in the inn, but rather in an after thought building next door. No mention was made of this at the time we made our reservation and no help was offered to provide an alternative room within the inn itself. Breakfast was Dunkin Donuts style with a breakfast sandwich, etc. in the room. There was a discrepancy between the amount to be paid on our Hotels.com reservation and the amount the inn charged us, they over billed us by 10%. We were told this would be rectified and thus far, it has not and we remain "over paid" for our stay. Service was good but dinner was merely adequate and not exceptional as in years past. In all honesty I can't say that the value of this stay was worth the cost.

    Roomy, quiet, great location, beautiful décor and scenery, and very fine dining - but not cheap!

    Lovely Inn

    Very nice spacious room and bathroom. The fireplace was a nice addition. Love the breakfast in bed approach they are taking due to COVID. Great customer service and thankful they accommodated our last minute dinner reservations. Their restaurant was delicious.
