We've stayed at this beautiful inn many times over the past 6 years, and have been dining here for years prior to that.

My wife gave us a night at The Inn. From beginning to end it was a luxurious and indulgent experience. Joanne helped my wife pick the best package for us, and enthusiastically met us upon arrival. The room was gorgeously appointed, the fireplace roaring (OK, it's gas, doesn't roar, but it's still inviting) had a cheese tray and prosecco awaiting,... More

My girlfriend and I recently stayed in the Montcalm suite and were completely blown away by the level of service and attention to detail the Inn staff displayed as soon as we entered the front door.

A few years ago we had a wonderful experience at the Inn of Erlowest where we celebrated our mother's 95th birthday. The staff, the meal and the experience were all excellent.

My apologies for taking so long to respond to your concern regarding our ability to tour the building and show you the rooms. I believe that I have backtracked the timeline to understand why our stay would have been reluctant to show our rooms. It was surprising to me to read about you experience since the activity that our front... More

I had to be at the Inn for a local event for The Chamber Of Commerce. While there, I was fortunate enough to have a tour through the Inn itself. The suites, themselves are beautiful beyond belief.

This was a wonderful place to stay. The people who work there are very friendly and the rooms are lovely. The restaurant had very good gourmet food. I was looking for something more intimate than a hotel but not as close as staying in a tiny bed and breakfast, and this was a great middle ground.
