Let me tell you about this place. I arrived with my parents on a Sunday night after spending two days at my aunt and uncle's mansion up the street. Sidenote: I never thought I'd be someone who would write that sentence.
Anyway my mom and I leave for FDR's home the next morning after the most fantastic breakfast I've had in my 18 years of life, leaving my father to do some business over the phone. We return to find out he's sick, and in 24 hours we check him into the local hospital. About that time I get a text message from my then girlfriend saying she'd found someone else.
Cue teenage angst.
We had to spend two additional days in Rhinebeck while this was happening, the innkeeper, the lovely Jonna, was by my family the whole trip. She called my mom while she was out with my father, checked on me while I was too depressed to get out of bed. Right before we left she even talked with me about my breakup, and yesterday I got a book in the mail titled "How to Deal with the Loss of a Love" from her.
She goes above and beyond, her setting is beautiful, her inn wonderful, and her heart is so large that I worry she might have a condition. And you know what? If she does I would gladly donate her mine.
