This was one of two Inn stops in southern PA in our exploration. Jim and Lisa at this inn were very kind and have an excellent experience in store for their guests. When we arrived, each empty room had its door opened for inspection. Curious as we are, we look at each of the rooms to see if we found one "better" than ours. They were all different--some smaller, some larger. But interestingly, all were impeccably ordained with lovely accents and were pristine in their appearance. (We like our room, the Dressing Room, the best.) Their staff is smaller than some Inns, so they can't provide some of the goodies like delivering morning coffee to your door. (Cf. Antrim 1844 in Taneytown.) But all the extensive breakfast amenities are waiting for you downstairs.
The evening dining is superb. We had salmon, cornish hen, and scollaps entres. All were fantastic. Worthy of the finest restaurants you've eaten in. Wine selection was broad enough for most tastes and was reasonably priced.
We only regretted that we live so far away it is not practical to come here more often. I rated it as 4 star rather than 5 only because their service and facilities are a bit more restricted than some more elaborate inns. However, we would surely put this on our short list of places to revisit if we were in the area.
PS: Golf very nearby at Whitetail is excellent and quite a bargain!
