Yes, the Williams River House is beautiful, the grounds exquisitely landscaped, the food delicious (and plentiful!), and the beds beyond comfortable, but the real reason to visit are Mark and Geof, the innkeepers, hosts, and long-lost friends you never knew you had. The warm friendly atmosphere is due to more than the big, inviting fire in the Grand Keeping Room, it comes directly from them both and fills their wonderful home. My dog and I came as strangers and left behind old friends who we look forward to visiting again soon. Thanks Mark, Geof, Jack Dempsey, and Dudley for a wonderful week. Chris & Tiger.
