I stayed at the Atherton Inn with 3 girlfriends for 1 night in December 2012. The innkeeper was fabulous. She spent personal time with us showing us around her beautifully appointed home along with all the amenities. Then, we spent several hours sitting in those wonderfully comfortable leather chairs in front of the "fireplace." Although she has a real fireplace, Tricia turned on the fireplace DVD-TV complete with Christmas tunes playing softly in the background. What a clever idea. She has a selection of adult beverages to drink while we just lounged about chatting with each other, with Tricia and with the other guests, who were no longer srangers by evening's end. My husband and I are also innkeepers, so I was curious about how it would go. My absolute highest recommendation, Tricia. Fantastic stay, fantastic breakfast, fantastic innkeeper!
