My mother and I were on the return leg of a road trip from Ottawa to Cape Cod. We didn't really have an agenda for the trip home so I did some internet searching for lodgings along our route.
We wanted to avoid a standard hotel chain in favour of a more intimate country inn experience.
Follansbee fit the bill perfectly. It is charming, comfortable, inviting- everything we hoped to find and more. The Inn sits nestled amongst the gently sloping treed hills and beside a peaceful lake. The Inn has all the comforts of home without the distractions.
Cat and Dennis, the owners/innkeepers, took great care of us and all the guests. When we arrived in the early evening Dennis had been preparing the next mornings breakfast and the aroma coming from the kitchen was mouth watering.
Mom and I chose a room with two comfortable twin beds. The linen was first class, with brand new duvets to snuggle under. Breakfast was served in the well appointed dining room and consisted of fresh fruit, fluffy home made croissants (we want the recipe), home made oatmeal with blueberries and warm chicken hash and eggs Benedict. Freshly squeezed orange juice, coffee, tea and milk were available.
We only spent one night at Follansbee Inn but I would love to go back and spend more time relaxing and enjoying the lake (which was at polar swim temperature when we were there)
Thank you for the great experience.
