The guy who had a bad experience with the accommodations at the carriage house obviously is a spiteful reviewer. Please do not make a decision on the Silo based on his or the other poor reviewers.
We lucked out finding this awesome gem by looking at google maps "What's nearby" when planning a last minute birthday/end of season motorcycle ride.
Looking at "tripster" and The Silo's web site, led me to Facebook which had a $50 off special for Saturday.
I was nervous all day because of the guest with terrible review. That was simply not our opinion. If your looking for flaws, you will find them, yes, as you would at any hotel. But if you are looking for a clean place that feels like home, at a very reasonable rate with lots of privacy (only three rooms) and beautiful views ... we cannot recommend The Silo enough. We found it cozy...like staying at someone's house, clean and welcoming.
Gar also explained he is planning some upgrades, including new carpet but we were very comfortable and happy with our stay.
The restaurant and bar made this little adventure perfect. Marcy at the bar, Big Gar and his staff are simply incredible. We were treated like old friends by good, down to earth people who are funny and accommodating. Our meals were fantastic and perfectly cooked. And they were even able to surprise the birthday girl with a cake and candles on such short notice.
We really felt welcomed and had a lovely, memorable night. Returning to our rooms we found the extra pillows requested by the birthday Girl during dinner, along with a bottle of champaign. What a wonderful surprise.
The Sunday Brunch was also exceptional and reasonably priced. If you left hungry it was your fault as the number of options to choose from were incredible. Omelet station; waffles; carving station with ham, turkey and roast beef; hot foods from breakfast staples to stuffed crab & beef tips; a salad bar and a huge selection of desserts. If you didn't find something to your liking you were trying not to.
The shear number of guests parading in both at dinner and brunch is telling that The Silo is top notch!
We cannot say enough good about our stay. We have already booked a return visit in March.
Oh! And not only were the restaurant and accommodations terrific, we were permitted to park the motorcycle in the barn overnight to keep them dry.
Thank you Big Gar and staff for such a wonderful weekend!
Ask to see Gar's beach pix and Christmas card! :)
Oh, and if you don't like it ... You can "Get the f out!"
