I have mixed feeling about writing this review. However, after almost three weeks and not hearing from the inn, I feel obligated to tell my story. On July 3 we were packed up, had most of our luggage in the car with the exception of a carry on bag. We were staying on the second floor in the main house.... More

My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary here and stayed in the Stonewood Cottage. Everything was simply amazing. It was so relaxing peaceful. The innkeepers were wonderful and Matthew did an excellent job cooking up some delicious vegan meals! This was the perfect weekend escape from the busy world!

Elegant cottages situated on 500 acres of the most scenic countryside combined with innkeepers gifted in cooking and landscaping made this an incredible place to stay. Hiking, biking, eating, and visiting historic Galena made this one memorable stay! Pricey but worth every penny.

The staff was thoughtful and kind enough to greet us at 10:45pm and went so far as to wait outside to make sure we didn't miss it as it's situated on a dark little country road. The Inn is beautiful and it's clear that a lot of love & creativity goes into everything; the decor, the ambiance, the grounds and... More

We had a fantastic time at Irish Hollow. The food and the sheets will blow your mind. They sell the sheets in their general store, buy them. The staff was absolutely wonderful, friendly and helpful. Saturday night a 7 course dinner is served so on Friday night we opted to go out to eat at a nearby resort restaurant. The... More

Our weekend started by a warm welcome from Matthew who was picking fresh herbs from the garden, then headed to our amazing Station House Cottage with champagne and strawberries for a surprise! The Cottage could not have been decorated more perfect, warm rich tones with each and every detail tailored to fit our cottage. Sheets to die for and an... More

I'd say the owners of this place have thought of everything. All the details are right, nice accomodations, nice toiletries, pretty close to gourmet food, and numerous ways to customize your visit. We had a wine, cheese and fruit platter waiting for us when we arrived, and it almost too beautiful to eat--but we did. It was amazing, and really... More

My husband and I just returned from staying in the Station House Cottage to celebrate our 15 year anniversary. It was amazing. The cottage was beyond our expectations and the grounds were beautiful. The food was exquisite. The staff was warm and inviting. We also took advantage of an on-site couples massage. Highly recommend!

We recently stayed here in the Station House Cottage. It was everything that we hoped for: absolutely gorgeous, great food and off the beaten path. You check in at the main building which is historic country. The cottage though was every level of pampering from the sheets too the soaking tub to the shower to the chocolate covered strawberries and... More
