We had high hopes for a romantic weekend away and they were exceeded. The friendly and talented staff ensured an excellent ambiance and all the privacy we wanted. The Gardener's cottage was a perfect combination of classic and modern. The setting is remote enough for complete relaxation while been close enough to enjoy trips to Galena. We were delighted with... More

The Inn was amazing -- bucolic, romantic, charming, delightful in everyway. The food was a delicious, gourmet treat. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The room was comfortable and gorgeous. The only downside was the spotty wi-fi but I understand they are making improvements. We can't wait to return to this slice of heaven.

We celebrated my husbands birthday at the Inn. Our room was so beautiful, the food was to die for and the staff were so friendly. We enjoyed hiking the grounds, relaxing by the fireplace in our room and disconnecting. We can't wait to go back!

Finding our honeymoon destination here was a fluke...I just googled B&B's....and... More

This review is very long overdue. My husband and I got married here on March 1, 2014 and came back again this year for our one year anniversary. The Inn at Irish Hollow is truly amazing and Vincent will take amazing care of you. We got married just the two of us in the Station House Cottage on a cold,... More

My husband and I just celebrated our anniversary this weekend at the old orchard cottage. Wow is all I can say! If I could give them 10 stars I would! Vincent and his staff went above and beyond for food, service, and personality. The cottage was beautiful! It set the mood perfectly for the weekend. We were greeted with relaxation... More

We have just returned from our fourth stay at The Inn. My husband and I look forward to the complete peace, pampering and indulgence of the place. This time we had 1 dinner and both breakfasts in our cottage. The dinner in the dining room was great as usual and glad to see it has been scaled down just enough... More

Just got back from a trip here this past weekend. This place, the staff, and accommodations are everything their reputation would lead one to believe. I stayed here with my girlfriend as a special birthday/professional school graduation gift; it was definitely special. The food is delivered to the cottage, and every meal was better than the next.
