I hadn’t been to the Pawling House for at least a year. I checked on Trip Advisor to see if standards I had enjoyed have been maintained. Yes! Was that my experience when I visited recently? ABSOLUTLEY! Barbara still provides a clean, well-appointed, spacious, quiet, and comfortable experience with the graciousness that comes with loving your work and the people you have as guests. I slept in the Room 3, the Merwin Room . . . my favorite. The room faces the backyard. I enjoyed having the windows open a bit all night due to the warmer weather. I enjoyed a lovely chat with Barbara in the parlor and heard all about the freak snow storm this past October and how she had a full house and then some. In the morning, I enjoyed a wonderful multi-course breakfast that proved to the last detail that Barbara has kept her very high standards. I usually don’t fret a bit about not having strong cell service because the WiFi is excellent. This time, though, I had good Verizon service. All this being said, I can’t wait to go back and hope others can come to this oasis.
