We stayed in absolutely charming room in the adjacent cottage. Spacious, tastefully decorated with a large balcony overlooking an immaculately kept property. The room also had a beautiful whirlpool equipped bathroom. The king sized bed was very firm and provided a great night's sleep.
We ate dinner in the recently redecorated main dining room in the Inn. We started with an extrordinary grilled artichoke appetizer, followed by prime rib for me, and twin petite filets for Susie. Each was prepared perfectly. The filets came with garlic mashed potatoes and I had roasted red russets that were prepared perfectly and served piping hot. The buttered baby carrots were served crisp but not underdone. A fabulous meal for two at 2/3rd's of the price for a meal for one the night before in NYC, and this was better on all counts.
The next morning our hosts accommodated our desire to lounge leisurely in the room, but providing our breakfast in the room, and it was great. I don't know if they could do that on a busier day, but it was an indication to me that they will go out of their way to anything reasonable to accommodate the needs of their guests.
