The howling winds, single digit temps, and accumulating snow didn't deter us. We arrived ready for an intimate , comfortable evening and the inn was perfect !
Decorated in beautiful Christmas finery, the hosts warmly greeted us and gave us a tour of their home. From the Library, to sitting room, to our bedroom, the fires glowed warmth and hospitality. Soft music throughout, numerous mementos of their European travels, books, all made the surroundings interesting, but not cluttered.
We stayed in the "Oriental" room, the decor classic , antiques abound, grass cloth walls and ceilings. The brass bed and sitting area comfortable from the fireplace's glow.
Dinner , a set menu for the eve, was delicious. Wine pairings amazing, not elitist. Perfect complement to the dishes. Mark and Deni brought their culinary genius to each course. Morning breakfast was delightful, fresh popovers, fruit and an award winning pancake recipe.
This inn is a jewel in a rural area. I had to ask to see the animals, they were not visual, nor an inconvenience. I would have loved more interaction.
We rang in the New Year wondrously, in a magical place. We will definitely return. Thank you Mark and Deni .
