my husband and I stayed for a night hiding from the rest of the world. this is not exactly cheap - one night went for over $200, but the place is wonderful, the area is magnificent and the nature around is quietly stunning. we were the only guests for the night and enjoyed the house for ourselves - the innkeeper lives in a house directly across the yard. the rooms are very nicely kept, with enough country style but not too much - the bathrooms are all updated and everything is squeaky clean. the innkeeper left us a bottle of wine and cookies to enjoy when we returned from dinner, and we did so playing pool in the nice game room downstairs. the place is a great mixture of tradition and technology, with free wi-fi and full body showers, and the innkeeper will tell you all about the great renovation the building went through, with all new and eco-friendly updates that make this a wonderful "green holiday". and the breakfast!!! ohh, gosh, it was soooo delicious!
we definitely recommend to splurge on this place if you have a chance!
