We stayed just one night as a late anniversary get away. We were in room 28 which had a wonderful view of the lake in the front. We did not hear any traffic although it was busy. The rooms were very nice and comfortable. It is an older building that is very charming and comfortable. If you want a large... More

My husband and I spent 5 days at the Sherwood and could easily have stayed 5 more. Beautiful locale with excellent, friendly service. We stayed in Room 21 which is a lovely suite consisting of a sitting room and a bedroom both of which overlook the lake. Clean and quiet. Street below has some traffic but the noise fades and...

The Yankee POT ROAST was mouth-watering. You have to try it and if you can come up with a recipe for it - I would appreciate it. The ambience is also very OLD WORLD and quite inviting. The service is wonderful and worth the trip.

We stayed in Room 30 at the Sherwood Inn for two nights in early November and were very happy with it. The inn faces the lake, a really lovely view; it's right on the main drag near the shops and few restaurants. Parking was ample (and the view from Room 30 was basically the side and parking lot). Breakfast, in... More

Very attractive inn in a beautiful setting. Public spaces are very nice in this 1807 stage stop. Room was nicely decorated. But the room desperately needed help. Large portions of wallpaper peeling off the bath walls. Cracked tub and toilet. Stained sink. Drafty sitting area. Lumpy mattress. If you are paying near the rack rate then you are paying for...

Several people had recommended a stay at the Sherwood Inn, so we decided to give it a try. While the building commands a stately presence in town and the location is convenient to shops, wineries, restaurants, and outdoor activities, the inside details were lacking. In an older building, you expect the quaint creaky floors and crooked walls. That's part of... More

Food in the pub was delicious as always, we have eaten at the Sherwood, but never stayed over night. The overnight was a gift from our kids, we loved the stay, brunch in... More

Stopped in for lunch with friends. We were promptly seated at a window table with a beautiful view of the table with a beautiful view of the lake. The food was excellent and the staff extraordinary. We will return here every time we are in the area. lake. windowltable
