We stayed here for a trip to Bristol for a college graduation, and it made the entire weekend memorable! The rooms were large and clean, and nicely decorated in keeping with the historic nature of the home. the innkeepers made it seem like it was "ours" for our stay, and we felt very welcome hanging out in the various rooms to read, converse, or have a beverage. The breakfasts out in the restored barn were wonderful!! Local yogurt with homemade granola, fruit, homemade quiche...it was a wonderful start to the day, and the the staff were friendly and helpful. The grounds are lovely, and the walk out to the point on the water was beautiful! There are even chickens and other animals around to add to the atmosphere. If you are looking for a super high-end four star hotel with marble bathrooms and modern amenities then this may not be for you...but if you want to feel like you have just bought your own historic home on 200 beautiful acres for you to use, and be cared for by local kind and friendly staff, then definitely check out this location. It is absolutely wonderful for reunions, family get-togethers and the like...LOVED IT!!
