My husband and I just spent 3 nights at Stonover Farm in the Schoolhouse suite. Typically, we're not the bed and breakfast type, but chose Stonover because of it's architectural beauty, the idyllic setting, and the detached privacy of the Schoolhouse suite. I suspected (and was correct) that Tom and Suki would not inundate us with unsolicited small talk about the property and the area unless we actually asked for their input. The casual but refined approach was perfect for those of us who don't necessarily want to tell out life story to strangers over breakfast, but can appreciate dining in a truly unique and beautiful space. Of course, if you wanted the full run down on the property and the area they were happy to engage.
The Schoolhouse suite was spacious and relaxing, with a huge gorgeous bathroom complemented with white marble, a two person shower and jacuzzi tub. Plenty of windows and light and air (with windows opened) brought the outdoors inside. Although it was cloudy and a bit rainy during our stay, the private outdoor patio would be perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee or a glass of wine with good weather. The bedroom and living room are spacious and comfortable, with a gas fireplace and many interesting books throughout.
Breakfast was excellent with a daily spread of pastries, fruit salad, yogurt and granola, as well as omelettes, eggs, bacon, pancakes, etc. We experienced the wonders of actually eating breakfast and all that goes along with it. What a way to start the day!
We would go back anytime to explore the area, see a concert at Tanglewood, or just to hole up on a winters night. Thanks Tom and Suki for reminding us that Bed and Breakfasts can be elegant and unobtrusive!
