I had the pleasure of staying at the Railroad House Inn this past weekend. I was in the area for a family event and my sister and I decided to stay here instead of the hotel the event was taking place in. It turned out to be an excellent decision.
We arrived at Railroad House fairly late in the evening - close to 11:00p. The tavern was open and had a few guests/patrons having drinks, watching tv, and talking with each other. My sister and I decided to sit down there and have a drink before going to our rooms for the night. Both of the owners greeted us upon arrival, and one took our bags to our rooms for us while the other went to get us a small snack (just some hard pretzels, but they really hit the spot and went great with our beers!).
Each of our rooms was very nice. The sheets and towels were soft and smelled so fresh and clean. I love the way the rooms are decorated to keep with the style of the building. There is a private bathroom in each of the rooms, which is appreciated (I have stayed in other B & Bs where the bathroom is down the hall from the bedroom and I do not like that at all). I had a great night of rest and was a little sad to have to get out of the comfortable bed once morning came.
Breakfast was out of this world - stuffed french toast and delicious bacon that was cooked just right. We ate in the dining room and had excellent service from our waitress, who made sure our coffee cups were never less than half full.
I was sad to leave Railroad House, but who wouldn't be? The delicious food, the gorgeous rooms and views, as well as the very friendly service from every employee makes it a perfect place to stay. This was actually my fourth time staying over at Railroad House this year (the other times I was on business), and I will continue to do so as a result of the excellent customer service that I have always encountered. Thank you, Railroad House, for making my nights away from home comfortable and enjoyable!
