We stayed in the Julia Childs room. It was spacious, well-decorated, with a large bathroom. The Inn upstairs has a common area with various cookbooks, a garden where they serve (delicious) afternoon tea with tea sandwiches and pastries--and of course we stayed for their infamous dinner.
The food was delicious and I loved every bite.
I was brought here I was told as a birthday present (and the dinner menu DID have 'happy birthday' printed on it for me), but after dinner and before the dessert course, my husband took me for a walk in their garden and he proposed!!! When we came back in the dessert menu had 'Congratulations' emblazoned across the top. We also got to meet the chef. Service is impeccable--they really try to anticipate your needs and exceed them. Breakfast the next day (we just had the regular continental, didn't pay extra) was also delicious and we went on our way with a full stomach.
Since the getaway was a treat for me, I didn't have to deal with the cost, but since the dinner prices are on the menu, I could tell dinner alone was QUITE expensive. Stay there for the night I'm sure was exorbitant as well. I think its a delightful experience that you should try at least once, but don't make a habit of it just due to cost. I do feel that for the price you're paying already to stay here, there is no need to charge a $20 upgrade for the "hot" breakfast...but the complimentary continental breakfast with the cute "flight of juices" display was certainly sufficient. If you decide to visit, just accept that its going to be expensive and pricey...and then don't dwell on it anymore. That way you can just arrive, and enjoy the hospitality here to its fullest--and don't arrive too late!! You WANT to be here to enjoy their afternoon tea,
