My boyfriend Damian and I booked this trip last minute and did not know what to expect. We were thrilled with Mont Rest and the amazing staff. Jan met us with warm homemade chocolate chip cookies (and yes, we ate the whole plate) and gave us the tour. The property is beautiful with many remarkable antiques in every room. We stayed in the Carriage House room the first 2 nights and the hot tub was lovely. Chris and her husband, Ralph, along with Naomi were friendly, funny and inviting and made us feel right at home. We went down the street to their new location, "Froggy's Wing Dam Grill", and spent a few hours enjoying the company of Chris, Ralph and Jan along with a few cocktails. The food at Mont Rest was outstanding, especially our private dinner and the elaborate breakfasts! Chris convinced us to stay a third night at the last minute as we were too sad to think about leaving this relaxing small town. We moved to the Boardwalk Suite which was huge and romantic! We will definitely be back not just for the beautiful inn but mostly for the fun people we met!!
