There is something about the Old Rittenhouse Inn that is beyond description. I could go on endlessly about the beautiful Bayfield setting, the fantastic "curb appeal" of the inn, the fabulously decorated rooms, the wonderful staff, the incredible food... but there is something that I can't put into words, and that is the feeling- the atmosphere- of the entire experience. I have read all of the reviews on this site, and just shake my head at the negative ones that complain of too many antiques and no TVs in the rooms... really? If you are looking for modern and need your television every day to be happy, then sure- avoid the Rittenhouse. If you appreciate beauty and class, and want to relax and slow down, then you've found your place. Every time I have been there, it is almost like stepping into a different world- where the everyday stresses of life are left behind. A weekend, or even a night at the Old Rittenhouse Inn is a "can't miss". I highly recommend it.... and wish I could go at least every other month, just as "therapy"! :)
