We had unfortunate timing of our 4 night stay as the Inn was sold during that period. Despite booking 2 months in advance, we were not told about the sale and and we rattled about in the empty rambling inn without other guests. The owners were clearly not engaged and we barely saw them. Came back from a day of skiing to find that the old owners had removed the couches and other furniture, cut off the tv and wifi. It was depressing.
When we returned after the following day of skiing, the new owners were there and the place was warm and alive again. They are lovely people who did their best to make it up to us. The coffee was great and the breakfast was healthy with fresh berries and delicious omelets. . Nick has lovely plans for the Inn, and we wish him luck with his new endeavors. His mother Sarah is bringing her grand piano and made plans for my 12 year old niece to bring her flute and play with her at their next visit. We would return happily if the prices remain reasonable. Wonderful that the Inn is vibrant again. My 'very good' rating reflects the potential of the Inn under the new owners, not our actual experience. The historic Inn is quaint and in a pretty town.
It is close to Catamount for skiing which was the reason we chose it.
