My husband and I just returned from the Inn at Honey Run yesterday 8/5/07. We celebrated our anniversary with the Inn's Romance Package which included continental breakfasts in the room, a gift basket and dinner one evening.
From the moment we arrived we knew it was going to be a tranquil weekend. The grounds are well manicured and yet very natural. The walkways through the woods, the flowers everywhere and the vast amount of trees makes it a very tranquil location.
The front desk personnel was VERY helpful and expedient with check in and then went above and beyond spending several minutes with me directing us to the best local attractions.
The room was really unique in a good way. We stayed in a Honeycomb suite. The room consisted of Bathroom w/ jetted tub, There was a dressing area with desk, would be great for a computer work area as well and an adequate closet. The room was appointed with local artisan crafts & quilts but still elegant and streamline. (Not too country, girlish) Comfy bed, nice linens, Iron & board, Nice natural bathroom shampoos, cond., lotions,etc. and there is a large stone fireplace in the sitting area adjoining the bed area. Complimentary biscotti, coffee, tea hot cocoa. The patio is made private with sandstone walls and lush landscaping. We never heard or saw our neighbors one time. We found it to be a perfect place for animal watching. Bird feeders are precisely placed for optimal bird watching. We saw birds we have never seen before. Hundreds of them. In the morning while drinking our coffee on the patio a hummingbird decided we wanted to taste the flowers on my floral nightgown. I was quite surprised and my husband laughed his butt off. Our room also overlooked the resident sheep and goat. The goat is very friendly and likes apples. The view from the room is of hilly Ohio country. Very nice. In my pictures you will see a very misty morning sunrise at about 5 am.
We had our dinner at the Inn's restaurant the first night. We were told that they were very busy and a little short handed so the Hostess herself was going to take our order. She and the food were sensational. 5 star. I suggest the three mushrooms on polenta as an appetizer. I had a steak with a lovely red wine/mushroom sauce. It was fabulous and a large portion. My husband had the pork tenderloin with fennel sauce and he loved it as well. We took our dessert "To go" as we were so full but that too was really good. A fruit tart.
At dinner the Inn Keeper introduced himself. Phil gave us the history of the Inn. He is a super guy! Friendly and very FUNNY! He is very concerned that you have the best possible experience at the Inn which makes him very diverse, even working in the kitchen for dinner that evening.
The second evening we went to the "barbeque" that they offer. The live sophisticated jazz quartet was great! It was very romantic out on the dimly light pavilion. Again the owner was there to mingle and even bought us a couple of drinks. Very hospitable. The BBQ was very diverse and tasty. More like an upscale BBQ. We never made it to dessert.
Both nights we enjoyed ourselves so much that we did not get back to the room in time to put out the door hanger with our breakfast requests, so we ate the continental breakfast in the dining room. The host told us of some of the days local area happenings and even marked out a map for us. Nice guy.
We will definitely be back soon! This fall in fact. I cannot even imaging the grounds looking better than they do but in the fall I am sure it is spectacular.
As we checked out Phil again was there to say goodbye. Phil is the main catalyst of the future success of this Inn.
The only suggestion to a guest would be to bring your own cooler for those leftovers and beer etc. There is no refrigerator but they provide ice across the hall.
The TV only has 5 or 6 channels so if it rains you may want to bring a movie for the VCR or watch the Amish documentaries that are in the sitting area of the honeycomb lobby. (Didn't realize they were there until we were leaving and would have loved to watch one of them).
My only suggestion for the Inn is small but we really could have used them. It is a communal microwave in the ice, soda, beverage area for those leftovers from the restaurant/ popcorn etc. and a corkscrew to open those local wineries bottles. Other than that it was perfect.
Thanks to all that made our stay so momentous. We will be back soon.
