My wife, another couple and I did a weekend getaway here this past Dec. (2011). Now posting reviews for Trip Advisor, thought I'd catch up with our past experiences. I booked by calling the inn, but it later appeared others may have been there via Group-on or some other promotion. Our "package" stay included two nights stay, including one dinner at a nearby restaurant [the 1792? house -- fantastic food, waitstaff, atmosphere! -- highly recommend that eatery], as well as breakfast (a modest, forgettable continental affair that was not kept stocked; we crossed the street to "Yesterday's" for a full breakfast), massages (great masseuses -- but book early, we had to have ours as we were checking out) and a room with a fireplace and a jacuzzi (suites are laid out funny, but are functional, nice enough and have good bedding). Inn staff was mixed (host/owner was talkative and in the lobby stocking the fire a lot, the hostess/co-owner was not very friendly, despite being at the desk and constantly on the computer, others were a mixed bag, some chatty/pleasant and others more hurried and officious; the artist in the studio off the lobby area was a nice guy and after a chat, we bought some of his photos). Inn's design is a mix between inn &hotel (rooms fungible and while having amenities, are not luxurious, more functionality here), but it is in the center of the village and has a pool table and an indoor swimming pool (small and heavily chlorinated, but still, a nice amenity). Luxury & romance levels? I would not give this top scores, but nonetheless, it was a nice weekend getaway place and it delivered on the amenities listed, if not the website hyperbole.
