We had a wonderful three-night stay this August with Pat and Kerry. They were the most hospitable innkeepers we have ever met. From the moment we arrived, they made us feel at home with their warm personalities. We were incredibly pleased with our room (Whitney View): it was immaculately clean with charming (new) furnishing and a very, very comfortable bed (the entire house is wonderfully restored). After restful nights, we came down to our breakfast table where Pat lit candles, bringing a little romance to the morning. Then came tasty fruit cups topped with yummy sorbets or ice cream followed by Kerry’s delicious breakfasts. We enjoyed eggs in a nest, lemon ricotta pancakes, and stuffed croissants during our three day stay. At night we returned to our rooms to find turn-down service and chocolates on our nightstand. Encountering this level of thoughtfulness would have been enough for me on this visit, but we happened to be staying with Pat and Kerry during Hurricane Irene. After venturing out that morning to see what was open, and finding nothing, we returned ready to make the best of a veggie platter and a block of cheese for dinner. Instead, Pat and Kerry invited us to a cookout, knowing that restaurants were closed due to the storm. They literally invited us into their home, opening their quarters to us. After dinner we relaxed in their living room, as if we were at an aunt and uncle’s for family dinner, sharing stories and laughs before heading up to bed. We can’t thank them enough for making us such welcomed guests!
