We shared a delicious dinner with wine in the cozy dining room. Stuffed lobster, beef tenderloin (among the best I've ever tasted) and the lemon poppy seed souffle is outstanding. Service was friendly. A very enjoyable evening.

Inn is beautiful with very friendly attentive staff. Food in restaurant was delicious- very limited menu - no name brand beers. Would not eat there again only because of the limited food and beer offerings. Food was expensive but very good.

Are gift certificates available for the restaurant at Hartstone? My stepmother is visiting her sister in Camden over the holidays, and I thought it would be a nice Christmas present for her. Thank you!
