Mary, the inn keeper, made sure we were comfortable. She even went out of her way to drive us to the wedding we were in town for, 20 minutes away! We had lunch before the wedding and it was delicious. We sat out back on the patio overlooking the golf course. Very beautiful. Our room was delightful. Lovely decor, peaceful...

Sorry I couldn't get you the bear you wanted to see, but he has been back recently! We always try our best to make guests feel like family, and if that means driving you so you can safely attend a wedding, happy to do it!

Was an impromptu reservation as the original booking elsewhere was not honoured. What a great find. Friendly service, very helpful staff and relaxing place especially the delicious dinner at dusk on the patio overlooking the rolling greens. Highly recommend the Inn and Mary, who will greet you when you check in could not have been more helpful.

Stayed here for one night after a ski day to Elk Mountain-classical decor in a relaxed atmosphere. Wonderful food and bar with excellent service. Attentive innkeeper and staff. Fixtures and some decor are a little dated-bathroom especially needs a little bit of work, but everything is extremely clean. We would definitely return.

Veronica, Thanks for your feedback! We are a TEAM at Fern Hall, trying to make all aspects of your stay enjoyable. In an effort to stay true to the intricacies of the building, yes, there are some things that are dated, or from another view, well loved, like an old teddy bear.

I had a great experience at the Fern Hall Inn. The building itself is warm, cozy and beautiful! The room where I stayed was spacious, and had an old world charm. If you eat at the restaurant, I highly recommend the lamb. It was phenomenal. When breakfast time rolled around, Mary was waiting to take our orders. She was so...

This was our 5th annual visit to Fern Hall to celebrate our anniversary/birthday/valentine's day for a ski weekend, and as always the food was superb, the service was exceptional, and the accommodations outstanding.

Staying a few nights here and enjoying the beautiful stone building and residential accommodations. The rooms are very large and furnished with style and comfortable bedding. Dinner included good variety and fine presentation. The staff are very friendly and accomodating.

Just returned from a weekend getaway to Fern hall Inn. What a wonderful time we had. We went with another couple and they enjoyed themselves as well. We arrived on a Friday night and had the entire inn to ourselves all weekend. Upon arrival we were greeted by a young man, Robert. He carried our bags up to our rooms...

I just got home from two wonderful days at Fern Hall Inn. I would much rather be sitting in their cozy reading room with my book than most anything! The rooms were lovely. The food was wonderful. The scenery was beautiful. The trip, however, was made complete by the amazing staff that keeps this historic inn running to perfection. Every...

Old building with clean and comfortable accommodations; quaint rooms with fascinating décor, old but workable fixtures from the early 1900's era (or before ?). Great friendly staff, and (Ann, Sam, and the young help), and lots to explore. We're not golfers, but this does appear popular with the golfing set. We were there overnight to attend a nearby wedding; glad...

What a wonderful place to get away from it all and to celebrate my golfer beau's birthday! The location and grounds are absolutely beautiful. The inn is a gracious, stately manor that left me feeling transported to a more refined (though not stodgy) time. Upon our arrival, we were shown to our lovely, spacious room by a delightful young staffer,...

I love the way you describe Fern Hall! We are a comfortable place to be and enjoy having friends over to stay. Not everyone gets the full FERN HALL EXPERIENCE, but it sounds like you did, the only thing missing is a mention of the lake? I'm sorry it was chilly on the mornings of your stay, you would have...
