Great menu, absolutely delicious food, attentive service, & worth the price. We're very pleased & highly recommend this place. Our saltimbocca was very flavorful, the lobster ravioli was killer w/ a wonderful sauce, the gazpacho was the best we've ever had, & the dessert of chocolate souffle was perfectly prepared -- so good! And their wine list is extensive, but... More

We stayed a couple of nights at this Inn. We had 2 breakfasts and 1 dinner. The food is truly excellent. The presentation is artsy. The flavors are spectacular and the service is superb. Prices are really not that bad....you would pay a lot more money for such fine dining in a city like Boston or New York.

What a charming place to spend some time. This was our 2nd visit to the Hartstone. Every attention to detail has been thought of. Each room is different and though our first stay we liked the room better, this was more economical and just as wonderful. The staff through the afternoon were polite and friendly. Enjoyed cocktail hour in the... More
