From the moment I approached the driveway, iI knew I was in for a treat! The expansive grounds and mansion sit on acres of green, lush gardens right next to the beautiful "Mount" Edith Wharton's home. Walking around the property I was transported to a different age. I imagined what this place must have been for it's original owners.
My room at he top of a beautiful mohagany staircase overlooked the gardens and pool and a forest of tall trees-maple and oak I think.
The four poster kig size bed was a place of restful, blissful slumber. I woke each morning to greet rays of sunlight through exquisite windows preserved from a rior generation.
The owners, Robin and Dennis were not in residence during my stay but they certainly left a staff of capable innkeepers....and a bottle of wine delivered chilled to my bedside....
Reluctantly I left the Inn to keep an appointment in NYC...however when I close my eyes and dream, that is where i find myself...among seven hills at the Seven Hills Inn.
