We booked a year in advance and should have known the snow would catch up to us. WE LOVE IT. Brenda and Kevin took such good care of us. We sat and read by the fire, wandered into the kitchen and just unwound.
Breakfasts are substantial and so imaginative. We spent three hours at the table with friends talking and deciding how we would spend the time before the storm came. Obviously, we went over to the Taylor Brook Winery to spend time with Dick and Linda. A little wine tasting helped keep us warm.
Valentine's dinner was a very special treat. The snow kept all of us in so the dinner plans were changed and expanded. All 6 guests, Brenda, Kevin, Dick and Linda were around the table dining by candle light and a warm fire. It was catered by Working Girl Catering (860-208-0180), who braved the very poor road conditions to save us. This was a fantastic dinner paired with appropriate Taylor Brook wines. Antipasto, Thai veggie bisque, crab cakes (the best I have ever had), beef tenderloins and a special Brenda desert medley. They will also cater a quiet dinner for two at the inn.
We have stayed at the inn before (several times) and really look forward to it. This is a 1700's farm house that has had many lives. Nothing is straight and square, nothing is level. Perfect.
The Quiet Corner has lots to do and see. Brenda has a great way to guide you onto new places every time we go. Make sure you go to the Taylor Brooke Winery next door.
