Arranged a weekend away for my wife and my anniversary (left our children at grandma and grandpa's house). Decided to go to Killahevlin as it got good reviews. We stayed in the Blue Room, which was very nice with a semi-private porch and a hot tub in the bathroom.
We arrived late, but had made arrangements with Tom and Kathy ahead of time, so everything was ready for us. The house is a nice, historic house with lots of charm. Our only complaint about the room was the water pressure...wasn't quite as strong as I'm accustomed to, but it did get the job done for a shower. The bed is an old style 4 poster wooden bed. The mattress was comfortable, and extra blankets were available in the armoire. Note: there is no TV in the room. I was happy, as the weekend was about spending time with my wife, not watching TV, but if you have kids, they might be disappointed.
The service was superb. Tom made a delicious breakfast each morning (we were there for 2 breakfasts) and Kathy was very helpful with where to go, how to get there, and how to get a discount if possible.
The room wasn't cheap, but I felt it was worth it with the great service and nice location.
All in all, a great experience and I'd gladly go back.
