This is one of my favorite places we've ever stayed. The inn is oozing with charm, character, and history which makes you feel like you are back in time a bit! We had a wonderful greeting from Callie the golden retriever who heard our arrival, the sweetest pup! The in keeper Suzanne greeted us immediately and showed us to our rooms, we were two couples. We stayed in the Col. Fry suite which was adorable. Huge bathroom, comfy and cozy bed, fireplace, walk in closet and sitting room. Our friends stayed in the room directly across from us in the Shearer Suite which had an awesome front sitting room with fireplace that was our end of the day hangout. Off that level was a great balcony overlooking the grounds with views of the mountains. The food was awesome! Breakfast served at 9am and they give you a couple options. Before dinner, which is served at 7pm, we hung in the main sitting room and had complementary wine. Our 5-course dinner was wonderful and we did the wine pairing with it. My creme brulee was amazing! Compliments to the chef on the entire meal. We all enjoyed it tremendously and our service was great. Overall the inn was very quiet too. We did have space heaters in our rooms because as the weather changes, it takes a while for the old heating system to kick into gear, which was fine, I actually didn't need them all on and just left the fireplace on all the time. You do have to watch your electronics though if you leave them on- may blow a fuse! We did local wine tasting, horse back riding, and explored Orange's antique stores and all were very closely located to the inn. Overall, very pleasant weekend getaway and worth every penny!
