We dined on a drizzly midweek evening. Dinner was a delightful experience from beginning to end, starting in the living room where everyone gathers for cocktails followed by the chef describing in detail the menu and farms he pulled from for each course. We moved to our table on the stone terrace overlooking a rolling lawn that spills into Pleasant...

Thanks for reviewing us and sharing your experience. The stone patio truly is lovely in the summer and fall - a relaxing venue. And right now, the gardens are just coming into bloom along with the spectacular apple trees - fantastic colors. We look forward to welcoming you back soon!

Peaceful, private, pretty location. Only one room on first floor; rest of rooms are on floors 2&3, stairs/walkup only. Spent two nights in room 11 (third floor). Most comfortable mattress I've ever felt. Pillows were great and linens were extraordinarily smooth/soft too. Very quiet, never heard another guest. Breakfast (included) was a small buffet of fresh fruits, cold cereals, assorted...
