We stayed at the Inn and enjoyed a wonderful evening. From the generous well made drinks on the lawn to a terrific meal on the porch this was one of the best. My daughter enjoyed the Tempura beef maki roll and I had the crispy shrimp in lettuce wraps both imaginative and delicious. For dinner we had hoisin pulled duck... More

Not by any means "busy". We were alone in our own "room" in the front with a window view. Just wonderful ambiance. Other than the very nice greeting from the Hostess, it was inept. We sat, and waited. (My husband is a chef) I could tell HE was very upset with the lack of any attention for 12 min!..No bread/offer... More

We visited again in the "off season", i. e, secnd week in April. At that time the skiers are gone, and not much is going on, so getting a reservation was not a problem. However, once the golf and summer season rolls around, one can expect that reservations here will be most appropriate. The food continues to be suculent and... More

Thank you @KVM101. The slower months are a great time to regroup and meet up with old friends. And at this time of year, the Back Porch is offering some lovely sunsets views. In addition, thank you for your review of the salmon, which I've gladly passed along to the chef. We appreciate your mentioning Jonathan's Pub. Like you said,... More

For a really special experience the pub downstairs is a unique experience in this classy old style inn. They always have a special drink of the night that is sure to tempt your palette.

Thank you for your comments, @BillREnconway. You were correct in thinking that the same menu is offered in the pub and the restaurant. Also, we like to think that our Specialty Cocktails provide something a little different and always delicious. More

Far better than hoped for menu, gracious and warm service. A real gem. Don't bother going anywhere else.

We ate at the Oxford House Inn (in the pub) on a Saturday night. The space is really lovely, and we were able to sit on couches and have a cocktail while we waited for our table to be ready.

We so enjoy our guests and appreciate your feedback. Many guests love the pub with its special charm...granite stone walls, lounge, the long cushioned bench seats, intimate tables hear the fire, the display by local artists, etc. I'm sure you can imagine that due to it's popularity, it can sometimes be difficult to get a seat without reservations.
