Based on TripAdvisor reviews we booked a night as part of a New England trip. It was a bit off season and we were the only guests that evening. We were met by the housekeeper who got us settled in a cozy room in a small building just steps away from the main house. It was dark when we arrived and had to wait for daylight to appreciate the grandeur of the the property and surroundings. The view from our first floor room was stunning despite it being cold November. The building was designed to resemble a Dutch manor house and is done in a beautifully creative style; it had been used by the family and is now used as a BandB. Breakfast was made to order and we had the run of the main house, a warm blend of old and new world. based on a recommendation from the housekeeper we took a long walk through the woods at a park just a short drive from the BandB. This was the perfect start to a wonderful New England trip. As good as it gets. It may be tricky to find the driveway to the property at night as the road is very dark and there is no cell phone service along that stretch. Don't despair. It is just opposite a small road on the other side (the driveway is a long road that is not paved). Follow it up to the top if the hill.
