We met some friends from NY here recently and were, for the most part, very pleasantly surprised. Though we did have a couple of comments for the owner that I will share we found the Inn to be more than we expected.
The property itself is large and, in nice weather, the grounds themselves would be great for wandering around. There is a good sized pool and even an archery target to shoot at. It is very convenient to the center of Lee and to some nice quiet roads to walk or bike along.
The common areas of the Inn are what made a real difference to us. They are large and inviting and include a large living room area, a TV room and a large enclosed porch area. There are always cookies, cakes and tea available. The breakfast they serve is well done and diverse...with fruits, cereals, cakes and a hot option available.
The room we had was cozy and did not have a fireplace. It did have a nice view of the backyard. But I think the front of the house rooms would be just as pretty and quiet as the road itself isn't too busy. The bathroom was pretty standard but the shower was large and the water pressure was great.
Our issues were that the bed moved and made noise at the slightest shift. We think that can be fixed easily but it did impact my wife's sleep (not mine) as she is a very light sleeper. We also think the toiletries could and should be upgraded. While these are easy fixes, they did sufficiently detract from our overall experience that we felt compelled to discuss them prior to our departure.
Because of these items we felt the value for the night was only average. This is not a cheap place to stay at. Still, it had aspects that were well above what we anticipated and we would give it another chance.
