The menu for dinner and breakfast was not what we usually eat so we were a little skeptical. BUT OH MY GOODNESS was the food unique and delicious. We asked for seconds at breakfast the food was so good. The Chefs were personable.

Our dinner featured an apple and celery root soup, rockfish and truly unique berry dessert. Our breakfasts varied, but were always plentiful and scrumptious. The cinnamon baked apple with granola was a favorite. The atmosphere in... More

The Inn and room are really great as well as the grounds. However after we checked out we received our final bill via email and it included an undisclosed 20% tip for drinks at the bar after I had already left at 20% cash tip at the bar. Also, they charged another unannounced $ 6 tip for our breakfast. Needless... More

Food was ok and the staff was very nice but way to overpriced. The rooms were not up to standard and left a lot to be desired. Dinner at Apple bees was way better.

WOW is an understatement! Every morsel is better than the previous one! There are no menus, so be prepared to be pleasantly surprised.

Cooked to perfection and served with smashed red potatoes and garden carrots. Breakfast the next morning equally delicious, eggs Benedict and baked strawberries topped with the Inn's signature granola. These two chefs have taken dining at the Hillbrook to the next level, can't wait to return
