“Lovely But Strange . . .”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2007

This inn is very clean and convenient. The house is nicely decorated, the breakfasts are gormet and the pool/hot tub are really nice. But there were some negatives.

The location is great between the Village and the resort but the inn is very close to the road and you can hear traffic all night.

There are some strange "rules". For example, the innkeepers instruct you to take your shoes off in the entry way and you cannot wear shoes at any time in the house. Although I do this at home and understand the need for this in a snowy/muddy climate, I found it a strange request at an inn. I also asked for a towel when heading to the pool and the innkeeper said to use one from the room. We had two frayed towels in the room for the three days we stayed there and with the pool being treated with saline, I didn't really want to be drying off with salty towels after showering all week. The innkeeper seemed irritated that we would want one pool towel for the both of us.

The most irritating part of the trip was the fact that although breakfast is elegant there is no choice or buffet option. We do not like to eat a huge breakfast but just wanted to have juice, coffee, and a pastry or something. But the innkeepers, busy preparing each item and pouring each beverage for all the guests kept us at breakfast
for over an hour (we didn't even get coffee or juice for at least 15 minutes). Things would have run much smoother if they allowed guests to help themselves to coffee/juice and maybe some simpler breakfast options as not everyone is going to be interested in their multi-course breakfast. I felt bad that they were working so hard and spending so much time on food I didn't want. It was a true waste of everyone's time.

One final thing that bothered me (as an animal lover) is that the inkeepers had a beautiful, sweet dog that they kept outside in a dirt pit on a heavy chain all day until they left at night around 10 p.m. This sad scene, combined with all the other strict rules and unhospitable policies made me uncomfortable and wish we had stayed elsewhere.

  • Liked — pretty pool, nice new hot tub
  • Disliked — uncomfortable atmosphere
  • Stayed August 2007, traveled as a couple
