My boyfriend, and I stayed in the Gardener's Cottage on Labour Day 2014. The food was to die for, the cottages were something out of a storybook, and the service was phenomenal. My boyfriend and I both work as front desk agents at different 5 star hotel properties, we were blown away by the high level of quality that The... More

Wonderful job Mathew on the property, the cottages, the incredible food and the way you connect with your guests. The Inn at Irish Hollow has no equal when it comes to laid back, tranquility. Our cottage was breathtaking and walking around the grounds took us back in time. Just wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back. Thank... More

Dinner is served on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday and we just had a fabulous 7 course dinner with wine that was exceptional. Matthew could not... More

My husband and I spent a couple of nights at this wonderful Bed & Breakfast. It exceeded our expectations! Our beautiful cottage "The Orchard Cottage" was magnificent to say the least. It was so richly decorated and the sunken bedroom with a see through fireplace was stunning. The bathroom has a huge jetted tub for 2 with wonderful bath salts... 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
