My wife and I were searching our phones for a place to stay last minute on the evening of Monday June 2nd. We had the most exhausting day as my wife had just find out she lost her father. We drove up north from the Boston area and had just a few days to settle his affairs and move him out of his residence. Emotionally, she was drained, 8 months pregnant she was tired and I wanted someplace nice where she could unwind. Searching I came across a few places and I decided on the Wolf Cave Inn for its high rating and beautiful pictures of the property. I called, spoke with Sue and had a reservation in 2 minutes. Sue had given me a few options and I chose a room with a private in room bath, although they did have suites ;-) I should mention my wife and I have stayed at 20 or more B&Bs in that area including the Conway section of NH. We have a little joke about our luck (or lack there of) of funding suitable B&Bs without running into issues. This was not the case, not even close. Upon our arrival I could tell this place was a cut above the rest. Pulling our car in the driveway, the first thing I noticed, aside from its gorgeous views of the lake was a beautiful arrangement of flowers and gardens, we both looked a one another and smiled. We stepped out of the car and immediately into an aroma of lilacs and other flowers I can't even begin to describe, it put me at ease instantly. Walking in, this place was immaculate, it made you feel comfortable. We were welcomed by Sue, one of the owners who greeted me by my name which I thought was nice, she was expecting us. :-)
Then Sue broke the news to us, she would be upgrading our room to one of the suites. How nice and thoughtful. Sue had no idea my wife had just lost her dad, she was just a kind woman. She gave us the scoop that her and her husband (Ron) had just purchased the property and recently renovated it. They did a wonderful job with it, it was just as beautiful in as it was outside, all the rooms were. I know this because Sue and Ron leave all the unoccupied rooms open for you to peek in and look, which was awesome because Sue took us to the top floor, what me and my wife considered the best room in the inn. The room was awesome it had bidirectional views and you could see the sun set as you sat in the huge jetted tub or at the farthest windows. A new flat screen television with direct tv hung on the wall, the picture was flawless and you could see it from the tub or large king bed. I should say all the rooms were similar in that the same thought was put into them, but this room was special. I wanted to hug Sue I was so happy with it. Everything was great, we slept great with all the windows open and a gentle breeze throughout.
The same detail continued into breakfast when Ron cooked us tasty blueberry pancakes and sausage. There was also coffee, fresh fruit and homemade zucchini bread (Ron grandmothers recipe). The whole experience was second to none and we can't wait to come back under better circumstances.
To Sue and Ron: We can't thank you enough. While sitting on the waters edge last night watching the sun set, I couldn't help but to think her dad was with us and I know she felt it too. Thank you so much for the upgrade, it may not have seemed like much to you at the moment, but it meant the world to us. Dan, Kristin H ohh and the baby, (one month to go!)..
