I had my doubts when I found out we had booked a place 2 minutes from my childhood home, a place I had driven by thousands of times during my youth. How would it compare? We could no longer stay with my parents due to a worsening allergic reaction so when we rolled down the long driveway with its solar powered guide lights, I didn't know what to think. It also didn't help that I was 4 hours early and we didn't know if my wife's extremely sensitive allergies would react here too.
Not only did the allergies not react, but the room, as big as many suites, acted as a haven for us to retreat to after spending hours gift shopping or with family. Karen and Bob were some of the kindest souls I've had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with and Bob cooks some of the most amazing breakfasts this side of France (where his passion for cooking was born). I didn't get as much time as I would have liked to chat them up, but what time I had was full of smiles and laughs and the feeling that we now had two homes on union hill.
Would I recommend this place, this haven? Absolutely! My wife could stay with her allergies, my 2 year old daughter explored their expansive common area and kitchen when she got restless, and I felt like I gained two friends and a new home so close to my old one. They're building/restoring the manor's old trail system so when there's a little less water on the ground and in the air, I look forward to wandering those too
Thanks guys!! Happy New Years!

PS i don't know about the wine, but if its anywhere near as good as the breakfasts or inn, then wine lovers better book this place quick.
PPS seriously, the breakfasts were so freaking good, and this is coming from a guy who spent 3 years touring Boston area breakfast joints every Saturday. If for no other reason, stay for the breakfasts!
